    Hey there everybody!

    As you already know nintendo has come up with this strange tri-wing screws.
    So, is there any way to unscrew the tri-wing without a tri-wing screwdriver?
    I have tried the tip with the pen but it didn't work for me. If you know another way please tell me :)

    Tri-wings are a dollar or so on DX.com, but I've had luck with those little "precision" screwdriver sets you can pick up in most dollar stores.

    You'll have better luck with the tri-wing.

    Usually a flat-head screw driver the right size might do the trick.

    Best to just wait for the tri-wing screwdriver, not worth the risk of stripping the screws with other screwdrivers.

    What if i open up the lid (broke the screws) and then screw it back with the philips head screws that are hidden under the battery?

    Won't be enough, there's these long tri wing screws, my best bet is you should get a tri wing screwdriver, they are about 1-3$, cheap as hell and it goes for any nintendo console.
