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
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
