    Default Baseband JTAG found!

    Thought i would start a new thread on this so people dont overlook it on the backend of "Do you REALLY think the iPhone is going to be unlocked?"

    Basicly the on going project on http://iphonejtag.blogspot.com/ by geohot has got to the stage where the baseband JTAG has been found, so basicly there is a backdoor into the baseband, which means they should be able to dump the content of the chip.

    A very exciting time that could speed up the progress of the dev team.

    All you guys are doing a unbelievable job keep it up!

    basicly its a backdoor into the baseband of the chip where the network lock is thought to be stored, which should speed up unlocking work since the encryption going in the normal way is nearly impossible to break, basicly what i think is a big step foward in the right direction!

    This is the way, we unlocked mobiles "in the good old days".

    So when you need special equipment for unlocking. You can't do that at home without the proper cables and software ...

    ^ - Taken from Geohots website:

    "JTAG, the end all, be all:

    The only guaranteed way to get an unlock is through JTAG. The S-Gold2 doesn't have any sort of trustzone, so with JTAG, you can control everything. You can modify the firmware to your hearts content, and it really won't be hard to unlock then. We could also get the NCK out of the running ram and finally trace the calls used to check it. JTAG would be ideal here. I know the S-Gold2 has it, and I'd even bet that it is broken out to a header on the board..... "

    In summary - JTAG appears to be backdoor to an almost garunteed unlock. Seems very close now.

    iīm not comfortable with it, cause i donīt believe, that everybody here would immediatly open his iPhone, to get it unlocked...
    i still believe in the dev team!
    let see, that the time brings.

    This part of the statement above is a bit out of date though. Many of the frequent visitors to Geohots Unlock channel (including myself) donated to the Jtag fund and as a result Geohot was able to buy a phone and still have $500+ for future requirements of this project!!

    The iphone will never live again but we all hope the sacrifice will be well worth it in the end.

    Damaged iphones and donations would still be greatly received is the pursuit of these efforts. If you are one of those that made a destructive video when the iphone was launched and have a box of bits with at least some intact parts you'd like to donate, please leave a comment at the Blog

    Who says everyone has to open their phone to unlock? If they can find stuff like the NCK or write a hack/crack with the information found, they can write an app. or method for us to unlock the phone with a program or tool.
