I saw this image on 9gag, followed the instructions, and now my iPhone's is blank for a few seconds before turning off?
Did I do something wrong? Does it need to be charged?
HAHAHAHAHA, people are already intentionally bricking their phones. Seriously though, apple's been fucking up so bad lately that they can't even keep a simple epoch fail from breaking the OS.
i never felt sorry for anyone that fell for the bend, waterproof, and microwave ones. i dont feel sorry for people that fall for phishing scams, etc. cause the truth is right there in the web address, and things are so much easier to verify. neither for people that get viruses, etc.
but this? i genuinely feel sorry for people that fall for this one.
I like this hoax because it seens legit, also who would think changing the date on the settings menu would do any harm and brick your phone?
Even I would try this shit if I didn't come to /g/ today.
>following instructions from Apple in the first place
There are people on /g/ right now that are so autistic that they cannot handle seeing other people buying products they don't like and will go to such lengths that they will try to destroy said person's product.
This is contrary to the values of /g/. While poor purchasing decisions are rightfully used for entertainment, at the end of the day it is the buyer's freedom to choose whatever they want. Attempting to deny that freedom is infantile, unprofessional and does not correspond with the freedoms granted by living in the United States of America or any other first world nation where citizens have god given rights.
>SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — An image floating around the Internet that purports to enable a retro mode on iPhones is actually a prank designed to brick your device.
They can log in their snapchat with the reserve phone like the two guys who texted me after fucking their shit up did..
Snapchat is not phone exclusive, you can even check online your snapchat nowadays.
>turning the device off or changing the date bricks an iPhone?
Setting the date to 1st January 1970 in that bastardized variant of Unix that is iOS causes some functions on boot to point to null values because Apple employs monkeys for coders.
THE ABSOLUTE MADMEN
