    Default Apples Trying to delete my phone!

    Did anyone else just get this?
    About 10 mins ago i got a message popup on my phone.

    apple has detected an illegal jailbreak on this phone. Press dismiss to erase all data.

    Screen blanked out with only dismiss button pressible.
    I didn't press it of course, but turned off the phone and restarted. The message was gone.
    Is this really apple, or something else?
    If it is apple that's really rude.

    Default weird

    Just got another one!

    Apple has detected pirated apps on your phone.
    A $1200 fine per app will appear on your next telco bill.

    What the?

    Apple can only charge you by iTunes-bill. Apple is only checking your iPhone while connected to iTunes. Did you already change your iPhone root password?

    It's time to restore with clean Firmware and then immediately change root password after Jailbreak - seems you have a rootkit onboard.

    Hey Stonefred.
    Do i need to reinstall? or just change the root password?
    Thanks for the heads up!

    PS. I don't have SSH installed on the phone.
    Just changed the root password.
    So hopefully that fixes things... Yikes!!

    It's ok.
    It's my brother. Apparently there is a way to send "Flash Messages" to iphones, that look like system generated messages with only a dismiss button available.
    Check this post to find out all the fun people are having!
    Mind you i was just about to restore my phone when my brother rang!
