This episode is misleading. It has nothing to do with hacking your phone with a cable; it's about hacking your computer with a USB cable. If you're going to pose it as hacking your phone, let's stick to that instead of circumventing it and just hacking a computer.

love the show but this one was painful guys. the acting, the script like writing, the storying telling from the coy perspective just doesn't work. You guys are informed. You can explain and interview without pretending (badly) that you don't know. That said, looking forward to next season!!

There's ZERO interesting information in this episode. It's basically a little sitcom for the most part. They hack into a friends TV without giving any insights and they describe his reactions and laugh. This made me smile a couple of times. Then they explain how to configure your wifi. Was that the hacking part???
