    I ordered a triwing and after a long time it hasn't come. [​IMG] I got my wiikey today and want to open the Wii, but don't have one. Are there any techniques/makeshift triwings that will allow me to open it without one? The burnt pen thing doesn't really work.

    Keep waiting? How long is a "long time"?

    If not, buy another. Don't tamper with the screws with any other screwdriver, you'll end up stripping the screws. D:

    I would wait for the triwing to come in. Its a pain in the arse to try to remove triwing screw with anything other than a triwing screwdriver

    A drill would probably work.

    even WITH my ebay-ed tri wing. like halfway in, the screwdriver started stripping my screw so it was freaking hard to get the remaining screws out. luckily the 2nd tri wing screwdriver i bought off deal extreme came in shortly and that one rocks. the one i bought on ebay is almost "bent" from just unscrewing a few screws.....

    so don't try anything w/o one
