About: My comps been dead, so I havent been on in awhile.

Tired of the T8H screws? you can literally get around the problem of the pin in the middle of it.

Step 1: Supplies

One thing. Just get a 2mm slotted (flathead) driver, preferrably electronics grade.

Step 2: Step One.

get your two millimeter slotted bit (flathead, whatever.) there are seven screws, including the HIDDEN SUPER DUPER BONUS SCREW!!!!

Step 3: How to Unscrew Them.

wedge the screwdriver as shown in the picture, and you can unscrew them easily. you gotta unscrew all of them, or it wont come apart.

Step 4: FINISHED!

You dont have to modify the screws, screwdriver, or go scearching for a custom screwdriver. helpful.

You can tilt the 2mm fkat head 45 degrees and gently unscrew it. Use a small hand towel on the screw driver handle to make it extra gentle. I know this is a 4 yrs latet reply. Just leaving the tip here for others

I had a couple of mine break. I then switched to a 2.4mm flathead. If you can get it lined up with the middle, and you keep at it, it will come out.

If you have pushed down the center button in the screw use a 5/64 Allen key and you should be able to get the screw out you may even be able to use the Allen key even if the screw is not pushed down I just did this yesterday so I know it works.

It's a good read, use this method at your own risk.

My bit snapped on the fourth screw. Thank you Lifetime guarantee....

I'm going to replace it and buy that special one.

Torx T8 was 2.99USD on ebay, shipped.

But im always a fan of using the flathead to open stars.
Thats how I open HDD's!

LOL you actually use a screw driver to open hard drives, I take a powerdrill and drill through the screws.
Works great!

this is more so you dont have to go and buy one, you can use a driver you already have. (hopefully)

You should edit the tags to include references to T8H screws, as this doesn't just apply to XBOX 360 controllers it's got wider usefulness.
