on about or aboot?

The 6 screws on the case of my x box are all safety torx head screws. (star shaped screw head with a pin in the middle so off the shelf tools cant open it)

A standared robertson #1 screwdriver will fit in without modifying either the tool or the screw heads.

How do you get your case apart?

I bought a complete screwdriver and drill bit set (including torx) kit at Canadian Tire for $12 CAN. smile.gif

Is my machine the only one with anti tampering screws holding the case together. The proper bit for my xbox case screws is not just a standard torx - but a torx with a hole in the centre. A standard torx just hits the pin in the middle of the screw and spins.

The rest of the screws inside the case are all standard torx.

I have an earlier version Xbox as well as a later version and neither of which have any "safety torx" screws on them. Is this a foreign thing?

i actually lucked out, i got a large bit set with all the torx and shit, and it had the GC bit in there as well. it fits, but i've yet to open it for reasons i don't want to say.
