As the title says, The screw was really tight on my Tamago. I think my dad did the screw up too tight. Anyway I tried a couple things, different screwdrivers, even a little Vaseline on a Q-tip to try and loosen it. Anyways I think I may have rounded the screw and I'm worried my Tamago is now useless. Please help! :(
Heres the screw so you can get an idea of what I'm talking about. http://tiny.cc/lf19kw

This is your photo?

Well, I had the same problem with my V2... Actually, I took it to my dad, and he managed to get it off. He said if you push in really hard, and make sure every twist of your screwdriver counts, you'll do it easily...

Yup it is. And my dad said the exact same thing xD
Turns out, I am a weakling. Thank you anyways :)

Haha! xD
Maybe you just need to find a bigger screwdriver? I'm sure that'd work...

Yup. Odd thing is I tried the same screwdriver my dad did to get it open. So, it goes back to my theory of me being a massive weakling xD
