    I messed up when I replaced a component in my iphone, everything worked fine until I cracked my screen and now I am in need to change it asap.

    Although I did not notice before that most of the screws are stripped/broken and most of them do not even have a cross anymore.

    I have been looking online (rubberband,flat screwdriver) and everything i see does not work.

    I need help how I can remove these screws and I heard you can drill the screw to loosen it up but I do not not have such things.

    Atleast 3-4 screws I can no longer remove and I need urgent help, thanks!

    Would superglue be the best choice? and should I use the same screwdriver that should originally fit the screw?

    some are almost round now since I tried for ages to unscrew them and it only made it worse..
