We have some upcoming iPhone (+ Mac) hacks and mods so we wanted to get the tools you need to take them apart, fix them, make them better and even crack open a MacBook Air if needed. We spent a lot of effort getting good quality tools a good price, here’s what’s in the store (more related products for “iDevice” hacking shortly too!).

Aluminum iPhone 4 0.8mm 5-Point Star/Pentalobe Screwdriver – We tried half a dozen different 5-point star/”pentalobe” screwdriver tools to find the one we liked the most The body is made from a single piece of aluminum and has nice knurled grips. The end-cap rotates so you can keep the body steady while rotating. The tip is nicely machined and is magnetic so it holds the miniscule screws in place while inserting/removing them Pentalobe 0.8mm screws are used in iPhone 4 (not 4S). Check the bottom of your iPhone if you’re not sure whether you have pentalobe or Phillips #000 screws.
