Re-iPhone phones to work after changing the date to 01/01/1970 possible by hand




Surprise the users of devices Apple smart operating system iPhone OS iOS days prior to the existence of a gap in the fatal software operating system leads to the death of the machine completely.

He informed the group of users that their devices are fully stopped working after changing the date to January 1970 1, where the device is rebooted automatically and remained in the position to give up even after the restart it manually.

And publish a set of users a simple solution to the problem after the first solution was to take the phone iPhone to Apple, where users can device left on the status of take-off until the end of the entire shipment, which may require a long period of time, but the end of the battery charge and recharge the device it meets the purpose, the device will return to work as was the case in the past.
