    I want to go for a shell exchange and I noticed that my battery case's battery actually stripped. Now I've unscrewed everything I could (tri-wing and some other philips ones) except that one. Is there a possibility of unscrewing the stripped philips without bricking the motherboard? And again, I'm not sure if it's the right thread of posting this but hey it's a NDS Lite.

    Somebody help?

    If you mean the battery cover, use a small flat piece of metal to pry up on the cover as you turn the screw.

    I dont know if this will work, but a last ditch effort would be to drill the screw out. But man, the surgical precision that would take...

    I think you're screwed.
