One more reason for me not to unlock my iPhone
Bet that's not covered under warranty...
Wow! If what he says is true, it exploded/burned while he was opening it, before any soldering took place.
What so honestly screwing with the software makes your iPhones explode? But it wont matter because it would be covered by Apple.. how are they going to tell your iPhone was unlocked if it blew up?
RTFA! It "exploded" when they opened it.
Apple thinks of everything. Try to unlock their iPhone, they'll blow it up.
" iKamikazi for iPhone"
I wonder when the first lawsuit against Apple will show up for this...
You don't mess with the Steve.
Is that a bug?
They put a bomb in there on purpose
It was an attempt at a hardware unlock...
No, an explosion is a feature.
Actually, that'd be pretty cool-- put ink packets in your iPhone and if it gets stolen, you can email a special code to it that would make it explode! Teehee.
Thats be pretty darn fun if you got to see the theft's face!
I Call B.S.
I tried to unlock my iphone and it spontaneously combusted. Now I don't have one and all records of me owning one have also seized to exist. No one even remembers me even ever having it.
Not BS at all. If you cross out that battery, it could easily combust, and can burn at extremely high temperatures.
I tried to unlock my iPhone.
I was being careful, but as soon as I put the cover removal tool into the slot to separate the cover, I heard:
"What are you doing, Dave?" in perfect 2001: A Space Odyssey HAL voice.
Scared the BEJEEBUS out of me. I stopped trying to hack something that was already pretty damn cool....
Now, I'm fairly certain my iPhone is watching me. And I don't care WHAT you say, I ain't goin' NEAR that airlock!!
Lots of funny responses
The guy likely left the phone on while attempting to take off the case. The correct procedure is to turn it off completely (red slider) while dismantling.
It may be possible to puncture the battery cell during the initial removal of the aluminum panel if you use enough force.
Thats not a bug, thats a unexpected feature.
Soldering is not needed anymore, Touching down on the traces with two needles is enough.
Ok now THIS made me laugh. New explode feature on the iPhone.
I can just imagine it...the next software revision adds remote dentonation.
Now you can blow your own phone up from the comfort of your own home if someone takes your phone.
He probally accedentally touched the battery with the screwdriver, so it imediatly discahrged, producing alot of heat.
Yet another reason to have easily removeable batteries
Also, use only plastic case removers... not a metal screwdriver!
