We have some upcoming iPhone (+ Mac) hacks and mods so we wanted to get the tools you need to take them apart, fix them, make them better and even crack open a MacBook Air if needed. We spent a lot of effort getting good quality tools a good price, here’s what’s in the store (more related products for “iDevice” hacking shortly too!).
Aluminum iPhone 4 0.8mm 5-Point Star/Pentalobe Screwdriver – We tried half a dozen different 5-point star/”pentalobe” screwdriver tools to find the one we liked the most The body is made from a single piece of aluminum and has nice knurled grips. The end-cap rotates so you can keep the body steady while rotating. The tip is nicely machined and is magnetic so it holds the miniscule screws in place while inserting/removing them Pentalobe 0.8mm screws are used in iPhone 4 (not 4S). Check the bottom of your iPhone if you’re not sure whether you have pentalobe or Phillips #000 screws.
Aluminum iPhone 4 Phillips #000 / PH000 Screwdriver – These small Phillips screws are used in iPhone 4G (not 4S) and nearly every other kind of small electronic device that has tiny screws. Check the bottom of your iPhone if you’re not sure whether you have Pentalobe or Phillips #000 screws
Aluminum MacBook Air 4 1.2mm 5-Point Star/Pentalobe Screwdriver – Pentalobe 1.2mm screws are used in MacBook Air cases. Check your Air laptop to verify it uses Pentalobe screws before purchasing.
