    I was going to do a hardmod to my paperweight 3ds. I received my "Philips #00" screwdriver and its too big and i cant remove the four screws before accessing the motherboard. What screwdriver do i need? Thanks.
    Sorry for my trash of english.

    The size is 00, but you want a JIS screwdriver, not a Phillips (both look like a + but the shape in the 3rd dimension is different), otherwise push down as hard as you can and hope for the best (and learn how to remove screws with drill and pliers...)
