Hi all,

Does anyone know where I could get one of these 5 pointed star (not Torx) screwdrivers? I've looked at DSE and my existing cellphone set has everything but that one :( I've got 2 dodgy GX30i's and I want to get one working one

Torx screwdrivers are easy to find... The 5 point star ones aren't that readily available
