Talk:Factory Firmware

From The iPhone Wiki

Thank you for modifying my page! I agree, my markdown hurt my brain too :P

But I must ask: we should add a line about illegally downloaded firmwares. From elsewhere in the wiki (I think the Apple Internal Apps talk page) geohot mentions that it must be legally acquired (e.g not stolen). Where should we add about that? --Awesomebing1 (talk) 01:53, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

I had to edit the part about Inferno prototype firmware for the iPhone 5, iPad Mini 2, and iPhone 6, these devices run the Factory SwitchBoard Prototype Firmware that just happens to run Inferno and other diagnostic utility's within SwitchBoard

Sure, and thank you! The other devices are running SwitchBoard too, so I'll add about that.--Awesomebing1 (talk) 02:43, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

Move page

I request to add a "s" to Firmware, making it Firmwares. It won't hurt anything if this move is rejected, but there are more than one firmware on the page. --Awesomebing1 (talk) 03:48, 13 July 2015 (UTC)

I did not add a "s" to "Firmware", because Firmware and Beta Firmware actually don't have a "s". Unless we are talking about "The" Firmware, I agree that add a "s" is a good idea if there are more than one firmware on those pages. --ShadowLee19 (talk)
Good point. I think we'd better leave this page's name alone for a while. --Awesomebing1 (talk) 18:11, 20 July 2015 (UTC)

Build numbers and internal codenames

It is okay and safe from troubles to add build numbers and codenames of internal factory firmwares on the dedicated page ? --The preceding unsigned comment was added by ShadowLee19 (talk) 18:52, July 22, 2015 (UTC). Please consult this page for more info on how to sign pages, and how to fix this.

Verification

A user that contacted me is concerned about the legitimacy of information on this page. "I saw someone's forum post say it" isn't enough, as anyone can make up a build number. If I can pull a fake build name/number like "TigrisKendall 15A25308t" out of thin air, anyone else can too. Although they can be faked as well, screenshots/pictures or videos would certainly help. But going forward, we need a way to ensure that the information on this page is legitimate. I think we should require some evidence be provided that the build actually exists, and it's not made up. But how much evidence should we ask for? How much evidence would suffice for this? --Dialexio (talk) 16:39, 8 September 2017 (UTC)
