    I have the normal screws and not the pentalobe screws. Can't seem to find one.

    1st gen? There is only one generation of the iPhone 4.

    I thought so. But when I search I get 2nd gen and all that crap. Replacing my screen and I need the screwdriver for the launch unit screws.

    Do not buy a #00 driver, buy a #000. iFixit is wrong.

    Ok. Sorry about that then. Good luck.
    Are you sure? I have always used a #00. #000 is too small and will strip the screw if you are not careful.

    Go to a hardware store and buy a good #000 screwdriver.

    I've had better luck with the #000 compared to #00

    #00 is slightly too big but possible to use. #000 is often a better choice.

    Either one will strip the screws if you aren't careful.

    I got the #00. It's only $4 with shipping. If I need a #000 I'll check some local stores.
