I believe they are called "Security TORX" or Tamper Resistant TORX (often shortened by Torx TR),

thanks agent,

to do list
1) clean up the yellow button, soda spilled, and the button is stuck

2) remove the damn xbox logo from the middle

3) maybe change the covers on it

Who really cares about a warranty on a $50 gamepad?

if it looks like a torx with a pin in the middle, then you can either find a set of bits that have the hole drilled out, or just drill out that center piece so you can take it apart.

those bits are a bit to small to drill

well, i have a bit, but its not long enough, need to find something longer now.

I use a very small flat screwdriver that fits very snugly in the side of the torx screw,the are screwed into plastic obliviously so they arent very tight.You should have no trouble with them.....gl;)
