If someone who set his iPhoen back to 1 January, 1970, he should try to leave it turned on till the battery goes flat.then charge it for a bit and on restart the phone resets the time and should be fine.

The bigger question is why would you want to set it to that date anyway?

It was a scam that promised a retro Apple screen.

The latest beta has a fix that prevents setting the date that far back.
