So how many of you will be doing this in Apple stores now?
I'm sure it wont take them long to patch this.
It's probably some date centric app failing to validate. See this kind of thing with windows but it doesn't brick the OS.
Try setting the date on any OS to some fucked up time and see how much it fucks with the software.
>So how many of you will be doing this in Apple stores now?
Why would I want to do that? Don't you have anything more productive to do with your time than to be a menace to society?
You're also a goddamn moron if you believe what the internet tells you without looking it up first.
One of the reasons why I don't see any real difference between these two things and why you are fucking cancer.
Until you judge the situation with common sense. Every other time in the person's life changing the time on anything results in nothing but the time being changed. They have no reason to expect anything else.
Back again, what these 2 said, basically. >>52959092
Also an altered version of
"The stories and information posted here are artistic works of fiction and falsehood.

should jump right at your face every time you open your browser. Maybe then people would stop being fucking retarded.
The battery is quite literally under 8 screws and 4 connectors.
Unscrew the two near the charging connector, pull the screen up from the bottom carefully with a suction cup, disconnect the touch ID scanner, unscrew the EMI shield covering the screen/microphone/camera connector then disconnect those as well, unscrew the EMI shield covering the battery connector then disconnect/reconnect the battery then reassemble. Not that hard desu.
No, that is totally invalid. The rules of common sense do not apply when we are talking about stuff you find online. The #1 rule online is, don't believe stuff unless you've looked it up well enough so you can actually trust its real or true.
Also, would you say its common sense to think that your phone changes its theme once the date gets set back to 1970?
Because its not. And I know, a normal person would not think that this bricks your phone, but also no educated person would believe that it changes your theme when using "common sense", so even if you think my first argument is invalid, yours is still wrong.
>Also, would you say its common sense to think that your phone changes its theme once the date gets set back to 1970?
Easter Eggs exist. Normal people don't know about unixtime but they do know about Easter Eggs.
Bad example. This is not "common sense" but it bases around "empirical evidence"
>based on, concerned with, or verifiable by observation or experience rather than theory or pure logic.
Yep, but I still wouldn't say its common sense to assume it in this and many other cases. Maybe its just me, but when someone told me about the easter eggs in some games (back when I was still a teenager) and some software, I most often didn't believe them at first.
You blew it, anon. Arguments > behaving like a fucking retard.
Also I was NEVER implying that its "your" fault for not expecting changing the time could brick your phone.
What I was implying was its "your" fault that you bricked your phone because you believed something that's written online that most likely sound improbable or very unlikely for some people without looking it up first.
From a friend on Facebook.
>DO NOT SET YOUR DATE TO JANUARY 1, 1970 ON YOUR IPHONE!!! IT WILL CRASH IT AND IT WILL NEVER TURN ON AGAIN. EVEN APPLE DOESN'T KNOW HOW TO FIX IT.
>it supposedly was a "easter egg" that apple planted in the code
We did it /g/.
>I most often didn't believe them at first.
Thus you feel compelled to try it out yourself and prove them wrong?
Especially when it's as easy as changing the date on your phone?
Anyone who isn't savvy has no reason at all to expect a broken phone after chaning the fucking date.
>pfft, buddy. These are people that bought and support Apple products. They are the real menace to society.
The hardware isn't literally dead, the OS is just in a permanent failure loop state.
Theoretically they'd just send it to the store and the store would flash the OS again, assuming they couldn't just flash the default settings.
>takes about a minute of non-stop scrolling to brick one device, to say nothing of a few seconds to navigate there and get to the reboot sequence
>implying you'll manage to hit more than one device before security comes to kick you out
>the device is IN an apple store, where it can be replaced in about 10 seconds, and fixed by anyone in the store
i'm glad people on /g/ are this stupid.
