Phone [Q] Can't remove screws

I am trying to open my Galaxy Tab so as to replace the battery.
I have the full kit of special tools but the screws won't shift.

I managed to loosen them a bit yesterday but now they are completely stuck!

How important are the screws? In other words, if I was to drill them would I kill the tab? I have the rubber gel case so that helps hold it together/

I just can't get the screws out WITH the tri-wing screwdriver supplied in the kit.

Step 7 - big picture.
You can drill these two screws - they are not important.

Yeah.
I can now see that in the pic.

I was looking for somewhere where it actually said so in the text.

Drill here I come!
