Do you NEED one? Or can I use any screwdriver that fits in the hole?
I have opened mine with a tiny flathead screwdriver. The problem is that it will strip the heads and make it harder down the road.
You are better off using a Torx, this way you won't mess up the screw for future purposes.
I think the screws have a little circle thing in the center of them. It would be easier with a Torx, but I think you can wedge the circle out and give it a try.
If the screws have the little nub in the center of them you will need a Torx security screwdriver, but I'm pretty sure they don't ( At least all the ones I've taken apart didn't) But a Torx screwdriver would make life easier taking them out. I think its a torx t-10 that you'll need, you can find them at your local hardware store.
You don't NEED a screwdriver of any kind. Be a real man and use a power tool to open that s*** up.
Okay thanks for your help guys. I used these small silver ones last time I opened an xbox and it worked but I think it DID start to strip them because they were in so tightly.
Thanks for all your help
Also, what tutorial do you guys recommend to open an xbox?
have a look on youtube for the tutorials, there are loads on youtube
i would use a tork 8 or torx 10.
The case and motherboard screws require a T10, the x-clamp screws are T8. You can use a precision flat head screwdriver, but I suggest using a real torx driver.
Also just as a side note, dont bother getting the cheap screwdrivers they will usually strip the second you try to unscrew it (all 5 of the ones I had did at least) You would be best off getting a wiha screwdriver.
i have used a alankey 2 open the xbox before
You can get a whole set of torx screw drivers for $5 at home depot. Safer than stripping all your screws.
