Sometimes they use a T-50 torx bit, and sometimes they use either a 15mm or 18mm bolt, however the caliper bracket is a 21mm bolt

SOURCE: 2006 Silverado - remove front rotors

Yes the torx screw must be removed and you are right the other two threaded holes you can use two bolts screw them in there after you remove the torx and it will push the rotor off the hub and the best way to remove the torx is with a impact driver it is like a screw driver you change the bits but you hit the end with a hammer which the tool then twists and removes the srew you can find them at any tool store prolly even autozone... and if you dont use bolts to push the hub off just use a brass hammer and pound off the rotor

2002 Trailblazer - 4 bolts on caliper. I loosened the top bolt with the pin, but when I try to loosen the bottom, it feels like I'm tightening it. Do I need to loosen all 4?

The front caliper takes a 9mm hex drive socket, and you can order it from Snap-on tools online. Nobody else had this socket and its the only one that is made for that caliper.

What tool do I need to remove front caliper on 2001? Allen or star tool and what size?

First, you you managed to give the year, but you forgot to mention MAKE and MODEL...Nice-to-know ...especially since you are asking for SPECIFIC information that does not apply to all vehicles.
Second, I have no idea what a "star" tool is unless you are refering to a "Torx" driver.
Third, MOST GM vehicles built in this century require neither an Allen wrench or a Torx driver. Most calipers can be removed with either a 15mm or a 13mm socket or wrench.
I would recommend removing the tire and wheel assembly to LOOK at the caliper and see what is holding it.

What size torx is needed to remove the front brake caliper on a 2005 dodge durango

It requires a special size that comes as a socket type from the parts store. I believe is is a TORX 45. But, usually you can fit and allen wrench into the torx hole to remove them. I have used 5/16",3/8",8mm and 9mm allens to do the job on various vehicles and it worked out great.
Hope that helps!...Mike

What size allen wrench to remove front brake caliper

i just changed my front rotors and pads on my 2001 escape, 6 cylinder. everyone was wrong on the wrench sizes, including the idiots at my local ford dealer. to get the brake calipers off I needed a 7mm hex bit. to get the caliper bracket off I needed an 18mm socket, it was a very easy job but check your wrench sizes first, it seems that every year and model uses different sizes.
