Exclamation Unscrewing some pesky Triwing screws/other problem

Hey all, I have recently found out that it must be possible (if not insanely hard) to make a DIY USB Gecko (http://www.usbgecko.com/). After digging around for a while I came across this:

. It was from a guy who actually took apart a USB Gecko to take a look inside/fix something.

To get to the point, I want to attempt this, I have actually managed to unscrew a couple triwings from something NON-RELATED to Nintendo hardware, with a small eyeglass flathead screwdriver. Basically I need help unscrewing those screws (or at least find out why those one's aren't unscrewing) Here are some pics:

I didn't know anything else used Tri-wing since only Nintendo hack shops sell it.

I reccommend buying a Tri-Wing and doing it. You don't want to strip the screws.

Yes, I was worried about stripping the screws, but so far every screw I have used came off fine, but still ya know.

I did find this, should I go for it? Seems like my kinda deal, cheap and no long wait.

EDIT: Oh, I imagine you don't know what I could do with that GBA flashcart do you? I think I found almost all the information there is out there.

Yeah I'll get the screwdriver.

And actually I was just wondering what to do with the spare flash cart.

EDIT: Ordered it.

If you also have a DS flashcart, some applications require both slot 1 and 2 flash cartridges

A cheap mans way of making something that he could also buy instead, for better quality too.
