Software Fix for Dead Pixels in Your iPhone LCD

Sponsored link

One of the best features of the iPhone is the absolutely beautiful screen Apple adorned it with. The LCD on the iPhone features rich colors, sharp contrast, and excellent resolution that makes reading even tiny text a breeze. Unfortunately, the beauty of the iPhone screen makes it that much more painful when dead or pixels show up. Luckily, there may been a quick and easy fix.

Iphone and mobile

Though reports of dead pixels on the iPhone haven't been rampant by any means, they haven't exactly been rare either. Thankfully, most reports indicate that Apple has been very willing to replace models with truly dead pixels. However, often what appear to be "dead" pixels are in fact what are known as "hot" (permanently white) or "stuck" (permanently red, green, or blue) pixels.

A new application by an individual known only as Knox is offering a potential fix for malfunctioning pixels in your iPhone LCD. The application is an AJAX/HTML based webapp and does not require any type of hacking to be performing on the iPhone.

The stuck pixel fix works by rotating hex values to change the colors of pixels on your screen at a high frequency. The goal is to excite a potentially stuck pixel and release it. There's obviously no guarantee that the fix will indeed fix your stuck pixels, but there are many reports of success and for many it's certainly worth a shot before heading into the store.

Oh, and the best part about the fix? It's free. Head to the Knox iPhone Stuck Pixel Fix from your iPhone to give it a try.

According to the author, the fix can generate some heat while exciting the pixels of the iPhone's LCD, but won't cause any harm. As with any unauthorized iPhone product or service, use at your own risk.

I tried solution on Unlocked 1.1.3 and 1.1.4 versions. Just follow the steps they have been explained really easy way. Dont think this is too hard. Just follow them it will work:

1) download WinSCP on your PC (google it) and run the application

2) download new general.plist file (google it) on laptop

3) download OpenSSH on your iphone (it will not show on iphone but its there so dont worry)

4) connect the laptop and iphone through the same wireless network.
5) write the ipaddress of the iphone from(Settings>Wifi>network details to which you are connected to shows you the ipaddress)

6) Goto laptop on WinSCP type the ipaddress of the iphone in host name field and username: root and password: alpine and then hit Login.

7) it will open like an explorer view of your iphone files on laptop then click on root on the left side. then Click Applications> preferences> replace the general.plist file with the one you downloaded. you have Done the major part.
