Your brain is a tool too!
The correct tools can make the difference between voiding the warranty on your device, and voiding the functionality of your device. if you don't have the proper tools, don't take a pair of pliers to a screw thinking "oh it'll be fine" because no it won't. it's just a bad idea. Get the right tools. I cant tell you how many times my friends have destroyed their electronic devices because they were too impatient, the worst one being the guy that took a pair of pliers to the back of his iPod because he couldn't find a wedge or "spudger." He ended up not being able to use the device for 3 weeks as he waited for a new back plate from china. Just remember, think before you act. Have a nice well lit, clean work surface, and be prepared for the possibility you may not accomplish everything you want in one sitting.
