Introdução

Just like in the iPhone 4, Apple has done their best to lock you out of your phone with two 5-point "Pentalobular" screws on either side of the dock connector.

This guide will illustrate how to replace the Pentalobe screws with good ol' regular Phillips screws. Phillips drivers are much more readily available, and the screws are less likely to strip, making all of your future repairs and modifications much easier and more accessible.
