There is a bug where iPhones in certain timezones will be permanently bricked if you set the date to January 1st 1990 and reboot the device.
The only fix is to disconnect the battery and then reboot. How can we turn this into an epidemic of bricked phones?
make a hashtag on twitter called '#iphoneeasteregg' or someshit and say something will happen if you set to the date
start a hashtag called #freeiphonecredit and say if you set your iphone to this date you will get free funds in your apple account or someshit
poor normies will definitely fall for this kek
>Niggers tried to make this into a thing
>lots of newfags be like uhmergerd
Dont even try.
Unix time (also known as POSIX time or Epoch time) is a system for describing instants in time, defined as the number of seconds that have elapsed since 00:00:00 Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), Thursday, 1 January 1970,[note 1] not counting leap seconds.
Division by zero error.
Ok noobs, let me teach you how to troll properly.
Just tell everyone they can jailbreak it by doing this.
And/or they can also just install free stuff doing that, and after installing just set it back to the normal date and their warrenty will still be valid.
Yes, it is that simple.
i really would love to do this to my lil brother but my parents would then proceed to fuck me...
how can i pull this off, i know he and his annoying friends all have iphones and they use it to shout at each other when theyre not shouting over ps4 gta5
nah, close guess tho he's 12 lol
parents are technoligcally inclined, theyre both doctors but cant even open up a gmail without calling me
need to pull this off with my school though, that should be fun
you'll be able to trick your family then kek
you might be able to spread it around school because most people at school are dumb normie fags that will believe anything
except that occasional nerd, avoid him
Apple trick they DON'T want you to know
>Hipsters and liberals immediately interested because they have to be at the forefront of anything new hence why the buy iFags in the first place
By setting the date to Jan 1st 1990 you get X free/improve Y/whatever
>Do it immediately because they're already fucking braindead
Enjoy your iPhone 10
>Communists in Starbucks put down their skinny lattes, get straight on their iMac, don't Google "corporations are fascist because" and instead Google "how to disconnect iPhone battery"
Literally that simple.
DO NOT DO THIS DO NOT DO THIS DO NOT DO THIS DO NOT DO THIS DO NOT DO THIS DO NOT DO THIS DO NOT DO THIS DO NOT DO THIS DO NOT DO THIS DO NOT DO THIS DO NOT DO THIS DO NOT DO THIS DO NOT DO THIS DO NOT DO THIS DO NOT DO THIS DO NOT DO THIS DO NOT DO THIS DO NOT DO THIS DO NOT DO THIS DO NOT DO THIS DO NOT DO THIS DO NOT DO THIS
That's my tweet
I actually don't give a fuck what your name is.
Just wanted to tell you, that hiding your name is fucking stupid when you're the first person who uses this hashtag
this someone trolling or legit? because it made me laugh
Ya blew it, you shouldn't have gone "LULZ I TRULLED U LMAOOOO" and instead follow the game with this like "That shouldn't happen are you sure you followed the steps?" Or shit like >>668438203 said.
If you put it in the microwave for 55 seconds on low you are forcing coils to drop all electrical capacity. Then 30 seconds high and your battery is full again.
Remember, to drain
>55 seconds low
>30 seconds high
>mfw her dad gets fired
>mfw she has to sell her body to keep her family from starving to death

Disconnecting the battery, providing you have a pentalobe driver, is about 1 minute of work if you've opened one up before.
But the average iPhone user won't have that tool, or the bravery to open it up.
A cheap iPhone repair kit on eBay is pocket change at most, and you could really make some money fixing this problem if enough people do it.
Worth bearing in mind if you start seeing Facebook posts about dead iOS devices. YouTube has battery replacement guides. Could make some money?
god bless /b/
I had to replace a screen once and didn't have the screwdriver or the time to order one, so I used the tip of an exact knife which I broke off little by little with tweezers until I had the right size to open the battery cover of my old iPhone. Still though, I've rarely heard of anyone knowing how to do this without buying the actual screwdriver.
Yeah it's bodgable, but I have about 6 little baggies of the Christmas cracker level of quality tool kits that came free from eBay orders for iPhone parts, so to buy them outright can't be expensive.
I'm keeping an eye on Facebook etc, and if someone is dumb enough to fall for this, I'll offer a guaranteed fix that doesn't void the warranty for £20. Already have the tool, and it's literally doable in under 60 seconds if you wanted to.
"But opening it will void my warranty and everything will be fucked, just like you shouldn't never even open your computer to clean it, just take it to a repair shop and it will only cost you 60€." How fucking stupid people are? My friend had his phone in a boot loop for 2 days and he was going to take it to a repair place just because he was thinking that pressing home and power at the same time will void the warranty. It was fixed in 30sec.
9fags are full of white Knights but surely they're stupid people who will try either way
