    The instructible doesn't state what size phillips to use. This is VERY important, as the wrong size either won't work at all, or could damage the screw heads, making them impossible to remove the next time you want to disassemble. I suspect the size is either phillips size #0 or 00. These can be acquired online or at hobby stores.

    IMPORTANT: Do not pry up the screen as instructed in this video, as it may lead to cracking the very delicate LCD. Instead look halfway up the aluminum backing on the right side of the lcd, next to the middle screw. There you will see a small semicircle cut from the aluminum, gently insert your prying tool at that point to create separation between the two pieces, then using a pair of needle nose pliers, pull the screen off using the aluminum backing. This method ensures you never touch the glass of the LCD itself. Good luck.
