How do I set the date and time on the phone?
#1
There seems to be no app to do it under phosh. 

I tried date from the terminal but I got EPERM. Date said: 'date: can't set date: Operation not permitted.

OK, sudo worked and then I was able to set the date, I think
#2
I've been trying it using sudo. Seems to set the date and time for the session, but then even if I use
Code:
hwclock --systohc
it just reverts to putting me somewhere up in Kamchatka on a Kazakhstan timezone. Or something. Big Grin

After I manually set the time from a terminal command line:
sudo date '2020-03-03 20:17'

I changed the time zone to mine by replacing the symlink for /etc/localtime to change it from
/usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Amsterdam to my time zone, EST:
sudo rm /etc/localtime
sudo ln -s /usr/share/zoneinfo/EST /etc/localtime

That survived a reboot.
