iOS 4.1 glitch lets you bypass lock screen to access Phone app, photo album (video)

Your iPhone’s passcode entry cannot block every thing, it appears — at the very least not with iOS four.1. We’re listening to numerous stories that merely inputting a random quantity within the emergency name subject, urgent name, after which promptly hitting the hardware lock button will take you to the Telephone app, thereby granting you entry to the decision historical past, voicemail, and tackle ebook. We have tried this with iPhone 3G, 3GS, and four, all with the identical end result. We will not get out of the sector with out making an attempt to put a name, and after that we’re nonetheless caught again on the passcode display. Moreover, choosing “share contact” after which the digital camera icon offers you entry to the photograph album. Pay thoughts that your notably paranoid buddies might in all probability use this to see for those who actually did cease calling your ex and delete all his or her footage. We cannot decide, however they may. Video proof of idea after the break.

Replace: Be happy to carry down the menu button to entry voice management and play some regionally-saved tunes when you’re at it. And when you’ve obtained four.2 beta like a few of our staffers do, this “trick” ought to work simply the identical.
