This is the tool you need: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=380046336230

It appears the bit linked to above isn’t long enough for the two deep screws. You have been warned.

ok thank you is there like a vid or pics on how to sotter the wires using the 30 gauge kynars shown in the bypass guide,i see how he did it but i just dont know where any of the wires really go and stuff i am not really sottering expert.

ok how long would the tool need to be to be able to reach all of the screws ? where can i get the longest one that will work ? i wanna play theis so badly lol.

anyone know ? is there a way to use that bit and make it longer?

Yes, you can grind/file down the thick part of it and make a notch in the end to fit a normal screwdriver there. That’s what I and many others have done.

The holes are approximately 45 mm deep. The bit above is only 40 mm long. To make it long enough you’d need to modify it.

Edit: beaten πŸ˜›

Hello!!

Regarding the size of the screwdriver. It should be about 8 CM (only the iron without the magician).

It is possible that some mangoes should be spent, so that the iron has a long 8 CM.

Ya que algunos tornillos son muy profundos.

I am presenting my screwdriver purchased at a store in Chile
