    stripped screws on psp

    so i was going to do a sound mod on my psp, i removed every screw but i couldnt manage to get out the two black ones behind the battery, they were just to tight, i used the right screw driver, and eventually stripped them both, one is completely stripped and the bottom one is a bit stripped, not to severe. if theres anyone who can help me i could really use it, and i am currently trying the super glue method.

    Next time you should have been more prepared.

    I don't own a psp, but I know that there should be screws that you can buy in order to replace your stripped ones.

    yah, the sad part is, the top one was already badly stripped.... figured i could force it out, i might try pulling the face plate off forcefully, but im afraid it may crack, ill get the replacements when i get the stripped screws out.

    sometimes, with enough wiggliine you can get the screws to scrape out.

    and if you were using the right screwdrivers they wouldnt have stripped.

    back plates ? or the full cover ?

    Back plates, yes you cna but the FULL PSP has to come apart.
    and you an change the faceplate with ease.

    Damn what do they make the screws out of, pewter?

    My guess is they are made like that for a reason to prevent this sort of stuff.

    firmware upgrades are meant to stop people hacking, so people make programs to get around it

    My point is maybe the screw stripping thing is deliberate. But maybe that point is too obvious for you.
