    Default Can Apple Circumvent Super/Turbo sim hack?

    Since the method does not involve any software hacks can Apple circumvent these hacks with a software/firmware upgrade?

    Yes, but only with a baseband update.

    To help solving these issues, I've been documenting the update process on the Wiki, and a few members of the Dev team worked on it as well - http://iphone.fiveforty.net/wiki/ind...Update_Service

    The goal would be to offer a way to apply partial updates on a hacked (read jailbreaked) system transparently. Do not hesitate to contribute I'll add a short tasks list.

    I think if there becomes a software hack to completely unlock the phone using some modification to the baseband, then Apple loses any reluctance to issue their own baseband update.

    However, until such a method becomes publicly known Apple is probably very reluctant to issue any baseband update because it gives another path for hackers to attack to see how and what Apple is changing in such a path.

    Kind of a Catch-22...

    They did issue an update already between 1.0 and 1.0.1 - but the update mechanism itself is secure.

    Could they? Sure.

    Will they? Probably not. I don't think the number of people using this method will be of enough concern for them to specially block it.

    If an easy to implement software unlock comes out, I suspect they will block that though.

    Why do you think so? For Turbosim, really how many can their be? My guess is a couple thousand at most. A good chunk of those are not even in areas that Apple would loose revenue from anyway.

    The skill and pain in the @ss factor is too high for it to be more than that.

    If there is a software unlock and it is easy to apply - I agree that they will nuke that as soon as possible.
