    I have no idea how to unscrew these screws because they are either in too tight or the screwdrive i have doesnt want to work on it or i damaged the heads.

    I was able to unscrew 3 of them with the same screw driver but the screws in the middle do not want to come out..

    So any suggestions?

    You should be using a Philips 000 (PH000) bit. This is standard across all iPhone screws. If you damage the head you may find yourself having to replace more than just the LCD

    Absolutely! Plus the fact that should you ever return your 'phone to Apple for service, they'll immediately see that you've "defaced" it, thereby nullifying any warranty you may have.

    The moral of this story is "Never try to fiddle with anything such as an iPhone unless you know exactly what you are doing and have the correct tools for the job"
