Try using a small flat head screwdriver
Put it in the screw and hit it with a hammer a few times until you can rotate the screw but I wouldn't do that if the broken screw is above the battery

Correct, the damaged screw is the second screw of the battery cover near the battery.

Then you can try the other methods for removing stripped screws but they never worked for me or do this anyway but I'm not sure if it's safe

You might be able to get away with using the next size up phillips head screw driver (PH0). Apply a decent amount of pressure onto the screw as you turn. I've done this on multiple projects in the past. Works most of the time.

Thanks, This Working perfect.

PD: In Venezuela we call that screwdriver colloquially as a glasses screwdriver.
