  • Maybe in the future they could xray chips and find data from them.

  • Its o so sad that the used the solution from ipadrehab and pretenend if its from them loosers, they do more harm than good

  • Moral of the story: Don't use Apple products, they suck.

  • I like how in the very beginning there's an iPhone 6 on the car and then falls as an iPhone X Pls drop my phone

  • Looking as Kane Williamson

  • How on earth did they edit this video after it was uploaded?!

  • Linus, Driversavers is overpriced no good company. They defently didnt do their own tweaks. They steal from from a community which they are not. Link to Jessas video.

  • 8:23 Exactly what happened to me a few days ago

  • way to be a shill. Driversaves DID NOT figure out how to do this! others did first!

  • I could have sworn that it was Jessa that figured out the tweak?

  • So Linus, you gonna address the fact that Drivesavers stole the credit for coming up with that technique?

  • LIAR.

  • Update from latest WAN show about the "IC short" fix and allegations:

  • DriveSaver shill

  • Linus, you totally skanked this one.... in favor of a sponsor. Bad optics.

  • Hey Linus, careful you don't get burned by association with Drivesavers. Sounds like they have a history of taking credit for the hard work of other independent repairers.

  • Linus, the curtain has been lifted. Your reputation is now in the gutter. Shill. 😠

  • Jessa done pwnt Linus today.

  • I would drop them immediately as a Sponsor ...

    • This is why cancelling anything is retarded

    • They never said they figured it out. They said they learned it from people. Ltt said it in a wan show. Y'all are full of shit.

  • Find a reliable sponsor. Drivesaver is BS and I am so disappointed in you Linus!


  • iPadRehab

  • Please respond to Jessa about DriveSavers

  • Wow I clicked (skip ad) and the video just ended, how strange.

    • this comment is actually gold, should be MUCH higher!


  • Hope the cheque/check was worth it, Linus. I'm not even in your neck of the woods and even I know they are a wolf in sheep's clothing 😬

  • Misleading information in this video, sorry. Be sure to get the facts straight:


  • divesavers are a scam. do not use drive savers

  • In your video about how your company makes money you state that no company regardless of size can buy you off. This video is informative to be sure but it isn't an honest review. it is a one-sided glowing promotion of what looks like a commercial that they paid you to present.

  • This is what happens when a business lacks the due diligence to do their own independent research and instead choose to be market shills

  • Reporting this video for misleading


    • 9:58 linus have address the issue in lan shows

  • Do not trust DriveSavers! They are a god damn scam and a joke they took this fix from IPadRehab! Jessa Jones knew how to fix this for real and her community knows way more!

  • My phone has gorilla damage. - You mean gorilla glass damage? No, it was attacked by an actual wild gorilla.

  • Come on man I wish you would have forgone the money an talked to Rossman before making this video.

    • Dude, this video was released on October 1st as Linus already talked about it on the latest WAN show. Sometimes, it just happens that a influencer partners with a wrong company without any idea that their practices could be fishy.

  • I have surge protector to prevent lightning cable.

  • 9:44 DriveSavers did not discover this. Jessa Jones from iPadRehab did after an incredible amount of hard work, and DriveSavers is claiming credit for her work.

  • all this still sounds like one big commercial, though. on a slippery slope, Linus, my friend.

  • What I missed here is that most iPhones are backed up to iCloud....this is just one big add...nothing more.

  • This is just one giant commercial. Needs to be seriously looked at when you give credit to the wrong person.

  • So it was not DriveSavers who came up with the technique

  • In your video "How does Linus make money? - 2020 Update" you said that you don't let companies pay for influence. But you let DriveSavers pay you to spread their false claim that they found the fix. As many other comments pointed out that it was actually Ipadrehab that found the fix. I really hope that this is a simple mistake, and that you will right this wrong.

  • It wasn't DriveSavers who discovers how to solve that problem it was iPhone Rehab. You should clarify that, Linus. They are adjudicating themselves something they only learned from people who freely teach how to repair their equipment. That's totally unfair...

  • 9:44 DriveSavers did NOT come-up with this solution! It was this lady, putting in dozens of hours to find a fix, which she shared with everyone, yes, including DriveSavers:

  • Is anybody going to point out he is wearing the same shirt and has the same set as Proyect zero wires?

  • Please drop DriveSavers as sponsors, they may have paid big but they leave a bad taste in the mouth of the community at large and have rather dishonest business practices.

  • Louis Rossmann repair guy said small Indy right to repair business actually found the fix.

  • DriveSavers, the old marketing bastards :)

  • Just one giant advertisement for a company who cleans credit for work they didn't do.

    • @Potato Tech that's an oxymoron

    • One day I'm hoping there will be a company that will be reasonable and humane.

  • my gf dropped her phone in the toilet...not once but twice. had to replace the USb-c pcb and the battery because of corrosion. the second time the display got wrecked. had to pull the plug because the display was too expensive. the people at DriveSavers were not lying when they said good tweezers are a must have.

  • any chance your gonna grow a set and credit jess with finding the fix, or you just going to prove how much of a sell-out you really are.

  • @Linus Was it DriveSavers that figured it out? Which one is right?

  • Driver savers are a fake repair company. they leech off findings from other people who actually know how to fix things

  • Would highly recommend anyone watching this video to check out Louis Rossmann's video titled "A word on big brand names in the repair industry ". Highly informative about why you don't necessarily need Drive savers and their $2000 Data recovery. Edit- And I despise any company that takes credit for someone else's findings, like they did with Jessa's solution from Ipad Rehab. Atrocious.

  • 11 out of 10 comments here are fake profiles spamming. What the hell youtube.

  • DriveSavers lied about finding the fix for the iOS 13 bootloop. It was iPad Rehab who found it originally with help from the community.

  • much ad, very marketing, wow

  • DriveSavers is scamming you. They stole the solution for this fix and claim it as their own! IpadRehab found the solution, not DriveSavers!

    • Lying, but not scamming. Linus was paid a lot of money to shill this disgusting company.

  • I dont know why there is flight recorder data stored on an ipad.. but cool story.

    • Probably because of the Foreflight app , very popular among pilots and it runs only on iOS.

  • This show is becoming one giant advert, o and by the way, have you seen the Louis Rossman video?

    • @Max Korinth I get you Max but disagree, for me bottom line, aside from the show becoming one giant advert, i think also LTT seem to be aligning themselves with the manufacturers and in this particular video drivesavers, of which there are many horror stories of price inflation for data retrieval. As regards MSI Jayztwocents and gamersnexus called it out for what it was Scalping, in a more upfront vocal videos instead of it being hid in the wan show. I have been watching Linus for years and love tech and also wish him all the best but i don't like the current direction of the show

    • @leaky bean not really, it's not something they've done in the past (or at least with any sort of frequency) and imo it's a much smaller deal than people are making it out to be. That's also basically the point of the wan show, to cover topics like that

    • @zukacs Thanks for pointing out. I have just watched though for me i thought they papered over the cracks. I think this news is big enough to warrant its own upload

    • @leaky bean they talked about it on the podcast

    • @zukacs Any techtuber who hasn't called out msi for scalping the RTX 3080 should be disregarded for the "never bite the hand that feeds you argument". Ill certainly be looking elsewhere for unbiased reviews

  • There’s false information on this video, drive saver steals credit from the community

  • seems drivesavers got the idea to repair the bootloop thing from jessa (ipad rehab) and now pretending they invented it. shame on drivesavers.

  • No. You allowed them to pay you to advertise a lie.

  • Hey Linus. Please make a correction to your video around the 10 minute mark. You gave credit to the wrong person/company. Jessa Jones from iPad Rehab figured out the solution to the speaker ic that caused boot looping; not DriveSavers. Check out Louis Rossmann's video here: for more details. He does not find you at fault, but I believe that credit should be given where credit is due because of all the hours Jessa Jones put into that solution. Thank you nonetheless for your videos on tech. This is one of the many sources I use to learn more about technology. Edit: Jessa Jones was not the only one to help come up with the solution. She had help and credited the correct people in a video. I still believe there should be a correction to your video, since DriveSavers had nothing to do with that solution and they only knew about it due to a text that they received from Jessa herself.

  • I was wondering how they could possibly have figured out that shorting the speaker amplifier chip could prevent boot-looping. Now I know; they didn't 😒:

    • Upvoting all these comments. While I usually think that Linus is reviewing stuff honestly, this time I'm deeply disappointed and I hope he will set this stuff right in another video.

  • Forget telling the truth when accepting that hot cheddar is soo much more tasty... #IPadRehab

  • Would you consider correcting the part where the speaker ic short for iPhone boot looping is attributed to drive savers when in actuality it was discovered by the fine folks at iPad rehab?

  • Watch louis rossman's video on big brand names

  • Louis Rossmann would like to have a word with you :


  • NO THEY DID NOT> LINUS PLEASE POST A CORRECTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Nahhh linus! Drivesavers did not come up with this solution!! Jessa from ipad rehab did. Look her up!!

  • No puedo creer que BRAIN_HACKER4 en IG recuperó mi Facebook en menos de una hora ... él es el mejor y legítimo💯

  • No puedo creer que BRAIN_HACKER4 en IG recuperó mi Facebook en menos de una hora ... él es el mejor y legítimo💯

  • Shouldn't the video title have "showcase" on it since this is clearly a paid advert? Isn't that the excuse you keep using for these paid advertisements, that you always label them "showcase", to clearly separate them from your editorial videos?

  • Drivesavers just got roasted on louis rossmann channel Maybe slight attack at linus aswell maybe

    • Well they did claim to come up with Jessas technique

  • linus when you skip through the intro: Accident- Accidents. They- Airplane your-house

  • Linus you just keep selling out. Every video you do needs a fact check now, like this one it was not DriveSavers but Jessa Jones who brainstormed over this problem!

    • RedHairdo After Rossman’s video mentioning it, oh boy. Look at the comments. It’s getting it.

    • This really needs more attention...

  • my parents: 0:00

  • Les recomiendo a hacker_smith33 en Instagram para todos sus hacks, recuperación y verificación de redes sociales ..

  • Les recomiendo a hacker_smith33 en Instagram para todos sus hacks, recuperación y verificación de redes sociales ...

  • did you see Rossman's video about how DriveSavers rips people off.

    • @Daaell To be honest, Linus just had no idea when making/publishing this video, but yeah, if I was him, I'd do everything to have this particular video removed and address the mistake in a separate video. Though I imagine it must be legally-complicated to do all this.

    • Finally someone

    • Linus: What video? (wiping his forehead sweat with DriveSaver's dollars)

  • I can't believe that BRAIN_HACKER4 on IG got my Facebook back in less than an hour ..... he's the best and legit💯

  • Too bad the only quoted prices are $2000+. However if your data is that critical, that should be a small price to pay to recover your phone... Literally just watched Ipadrehab express this company quoted $900 to replace a screen. on oddly an iPhone 6 or 6s. Fairly old tech, I'd think this service would be expensive, not EXOTIC! :P However if everyone was Lunus, Everyone would get cheaper rates, maybe? While this company is very reputable, and the service is probably 2nd to none.... The prices will have you finding several 3rds if you know more than the common Joe, especially if you are relying on a stimulus check to fix your 10 year old phone...

  • You should contact Louis Rossmann again

  • The first of your videos I have ever disliked. iPad Rehab discovered this, NOT those scammers at Drivesavers!!!!

  • This is not cool:P

  • he is advertising big scamy compeny. That is LTT whoever pays gets a video iven scamers. :/

    • @B Diamond Yes, I'm upvoting all these comments. While I usually think that Linus is reviewing stuff honestly, this time I'm deeply disappointed and I hope he will set this stuff right in another video.

    • @[C] Then he should put a correction out. Just looks like he only cares about the $$ or there would have been some sort of statement by now.

    • He didn't know.

    • @brunoais Linus is a shill, he only cares about the $$$$

    • I think LTT didn't know. There's so much that I understand it's hard to filter out... That, as long as they stop advertising about this.

  • Harambe didn't ask for this

  • I saw a video on Rossman channel about Drivesaver quoting a broken screen 900-2k. That's some fishy s*** to pull and a hell naw on my part.

  • This is really disappointing Linus keeps relationship with this company who takes advantage of their customers. Every recovery is ridiculously overpriced, even if it's 10 minute job.

  • DriveSavers are a scam. Overpriced. And they take advantage of desperate people to price gauge them

    • Plus they are lying by saying they came up with the fix, when in reality IPadRehab DIRECTLY told them how to do it. IPadRehab also came up with it.

  • I'm a mod from ipadrehab channel and drive savers claiming to have found this issue and solved it themselves is a joke! Ipadrehab SOLEY discovered the iPhone 7 audio codec issue and shared it! They stole credit!

    • "SOLELY" Really? I believe Louis said that she credited those who helped her with the discovery.

    • He is talking about it on Wan show right now.

    • @Michael-Paul Moore Does he? I know they cooperated before, but I'm not sure this facilitates communication between them.

    • @Ned Hineline Hopefully Louis contacts them, since he probably has a more direct way of reaching out to them.

    • @Michael-Paul Moore I did email them and it will be lost in their sea of emails. Kinda annoying 🙄

  • Drive savers didn't find this repair. IPadRehab did and they stole the credit! Her channel has the proof! Drive savers is a scam and a minimum 2,000!!! Contact IPadRehab today!!!!

  • Would point you to video made by ipad rehab about drive savers

  • wow they fixed your problem and it only cost you twice the price of the original product!
