Hi. I was not having succes trying to install an app from Warehouse. I then tried the trick of changing clock back to 2015 and it worked! But it is extremely tedious to change date in settings as you have to scroll through months. Indeed, I was really dumb at first trying this trick cause I tried to change the date before firing up the app! As a result it messed up my network connection! Is there a quick way to do this? Terminal command?
Just occurred to me this might make a nice app!

When wanting to change date if you press and hold on month display will change to show months in "vertical stack" and then can whizz back and forwards through the months.

Thanks. There must be a linux command like date -s .... I tried some versions I found online but I was getting an error like invalid date. So I'm not entering the date in the format it wants. Maybe someone can chime in that knows correct syntax. Now my next question is how to make an app that runs a simple script. Do I need to use a SDK to do something simple like this?

Did you try
Code:
date -s '2018-10-27 00:33:25'
of course with devel-su?

And setting up an "app" for Harmattan with Aegis must be a nightmare! (never even tried but...)
if you provide a compressed archive with full paths and just the script as well as a xesktop file there should be no need for an "app" / deb.

Yep, exactly.


What do you mean "use it wisely"?
Aegis Hack is installed, and with the "agis-dpkg" I've successfully installed Harmojifix etc.
Okay, how should we know.
Then my last guess is follow aspergerguy and set the date of device back to ancient times

Just use kernel plus and forget about those date tricks forever.
You can simply flash it (unsupported method), without any data loss, or use with Ubiboot.

Oops, yeah.
Might be that Aegis also blocks date setting via command line (it does with mount and other system stuff)?

I was using an open kernel from the early days so I do not remember all what Aegis did block!
With an open kernel there would also be no need for aegis-dpkg.

Same about me, so can't tell what exactly aegis blocks

Thanks - the Date-Trick worked
Although I don't get what the date has to do with it
But thanks anyway.

Packages of software are signed with a certificate to prove they haven't been modified and come from the original maintainer.

These certificate often have an expiry date, after which they are no longer valid. Your phone fails to install the package then, it assumes its not trustworthy.
Setting your date back to the past tricks your phone into thinking the certificate hasn't expired yet.

Don't forget to set it back to now, certificates are usually not valid for dates before their creation. So websites and newer software may not work/install!
