    Hello everybody,

    I've got a defective Hatsune Miku PsVita. The start button doesn't work.
    I know that the right pcb is faulty. I've got the repair part, but during the unscrewing I faced a problem : the Wi-Fi card doesn't use Phillips screw but Torx ones.
    And they are really small.

    Does anybody know the needed size ?

    Thx !

    Think they are T4, but please get some clarity before rushing out to buy one.

    FYI, it's a 3G wireless card, not WiFi. But the weird thing is that the iFixit guide shows phillips screws, not torx.

    Also, I saw a forum post mention they're T2 screws for Japanese Vitas. That's about all I can find out.

    Yes, it's a 3g/wifi card.
    And yes my Vita is a Japanese one (Hatsune Miku).

    I'll try to find a T2 torx.

    Thx

    Good news, you're right, Torx T2 fit perfectly. THX !

    Now i'm waiting for my spare pcb, because the first one received was for Wifi only PSV.

    Great post!I was curious about this a few months back,and had the idea of replacing the wifi/3g card with a wifi/4g model.I have seen various laptop modules from laptops that have the possibilities but matching chipset drivers with the Vita would be the issue.
