I see cell phone repair as a noble profession. A community of precision craftsmen that use their skills to bring back thousands of devices from the brink of the eWaste landfill. I'm all about working together to solve problems, sharing methodologies and raising the overall bar of what independent repair can do in our communities.
I can't stand the ugly side of our industry---deceitful practices like laundering stolen phones, crappy "shields on" water damage repair, cheap parts being sold as OEM, failure to disclose customer options at Apple, IMEI "cleaning". The last thing I want to do is contribute that crap.
But sometimes, two wrongs can make a right.
This video is all about error 53. The ability of Apple to turn perfectly functional, paid in full phones instantly into bricks--over the air, erasing customer data with impunity. Why? For the crime of visiting an independent repair shop at some point this year and getting a screen and home button swapped.
We own these devices. We have the right to repair them. We have the right to change the color of the home button. We have the right to not give a fig about touch ID. They are ours, they belong to us. Apple does not have the right to reach its tentacles through our WiFi routers and take away our devices just because they can. It is time for mom and dad to learn that babies grow up, they don't want to be controlled. They want freedom.
My solution to error 53 in iPhone 6 is to fix the original home button. But what about the thousands of phone that no longer have the original home button? For in warranty phones, I'm suggesting that we fight dirty with dirty. I'm suggesting that sometimes two wrongs make a right. I'm suggesting we sometimes follow our moral compass instead of the law of the land. I'm suggesting that we take our error 53 bricked phones that we paid Apple to own, that Apple knowingly bricked for the crime of changing the home button and slap them on the counter and hold Apple accountable. That is only going to work if the phone is returned to original unopened condition. If your moral compass points in that direction, this video may help you succeed on your journey. From a moral perspective, there is no loss here. Apple can, and does, have the ability to reprogram the perfectly functional phone that you are turning in. I don't believe that Apple has the moral right to destroy our phones because we changed a home button on a device we own.
