Renew Lease iPhone Bug

Thursday, August 23, 2007 11:06 PM

I found an awesome iPhone bug today.


I was able to reproduce this bug on other iPhone's by assuming the following....

  • You are using a 802.11g access point.
  • You are using security, specifically WPA enabled using TKIP.
  • You are already connected to your access point.

To reproduce the bug follow the steps below...

  1. Goto Settings on the home screen.
  2. Select Wi-Fi
  3. Select the ">" for your connected Access Point.
  4. Goto BootP tab.
  5. Goto Static tab.
  6. Goto DHCP tab.
  7. Scroll to the bottom of the screen.
  8. Press the Renew Lease button.
  9. Confirm by pressing the Renew Lease button again from the popup.
  10. Repeat steps 8 and 9 to grow your buttons!
