Why Liberate My iPhone?
Removing the Pentalobe screws on the bottom of the iPhone and replacing them with Phillips screws accomplishes two tasks.
1. It future-proofs your iPhone. In the unfortunate event that your iPhone needs repair, you will be all set to make any repair necessary. Phillips screwdrivers are widely available, whereas Pentalobe screwdrivers are not. In situations where getting the battery out of the iPhone as quickly as possible—such as after dropping the iPhone into water—you will be all set.
2. It sends a message. When people see your iPhone, in all it's liberated glory, they will know that you don't stand for restrictions on your hardware. You believe that repair choices should be up to that owner, that repair should be easy, accessible, and affordable.
