Jan. 1, 1970 (Unix Time) on your iPhone Problem – Solutions

Seems like there is a SW issue with 64bit iPhones on dealing with time if you set the date/time to Jan. 1, 1970/00:00:00. iOS is using Unix time to track time.

The single problem is the full screen Starcraft window that is placed on top of all other application, including task manager.
