    You have to drill out the screw. Start with a very small steel drill (1.5-2) and then use a slightly larger one if necessary.

    It also happened to me, one of the screws was particularly tight.

    Dude I had all the right bits and used them yet one of my screws got stripped. I was a bit upset (see what I did there?) Yes it is sad though. Be very careful with the drill and you should be golden. I have drilled out some pentalobe screws before and just had to be very very careful. Good luck!

    you can't break anything i you be careful enough. fix the switch with suitable equipment (i just clamp it between my legs :) ).

    the size of the drill should be just as big as the diameter of the bit you used. start with a low rotational speed.
    by the way, only the two middle screws fix the backcover of the switch.

    Sounds like you need a new game fix guy.
