  8. If you Jailbreak an iPhone, the password to access the root menu is "alpine" on every device.

    Long story short, Someone made a virus that changed your background to rick astley

  22. I think this is the problem with an open source OS that's actually super popular and profitable for these phone companies. Stuff gets holes in it when they put their own hastily built custom shells on it.
