    Default Gizmodo article, IphoneSimFree Software and Reseller loading software via SSH?

    Just read the Gizmodo IPSF Article and came across something very interesting --

    "In our case, the IPSF guys loaded the unlock application onto the phones via SSH. This is not how it will be done in the final version (you'll get yours loaded by the reseller), but it was quicker this way."

    Re: "you'll get yours loaded by the reseller...."

    Hum? Anyone understand what this brainiac is trying to say? I.e. that Trash et al. need to fugu/winscp onto everyone's iPhone and drop the software onto their iphone's hard drive? Hum? Using NAT w/overloading, it's going to be quite difficult to SCP to an RFC1918 IP address (i.e. 10/8, 172.16/16 and 192.168/24), especially since 1) overloading only works if a host initiates a connection to a remote host that is on a different subnet then you are on and, 2) RFC1918 addresses are not routed on the Internet since they are private address space.

    Clearly, the only way that this can work is that Trash et al. send a small installation script via email that you download and copy to your iphone and launch. Thoughts?

    Dude, I read what I wrote as well as read and understood what was stated in black & white in the article. Did you?

    Question still stands...who will copy the SW to the iPhone?

    I have just received confirmation that the software will be E-mailed to you from the reseller. To your registered PayPal E-mail address.

    If IPSF uploaded the program via SSH, and they are far far away (US - France), it means they connected the iPhone to WiFi and forwarded port 22 from the router to the iPhone? I was thinking there would be a web interface you connect to, and through that you download the app and unlock.

    Ben, how they did it for the test isn't the question, rather it's how they will do it during the deployment.

    well if the gizmodo dude was on the ball he could have had an open ssh connection and copied the unlock.app to his mac while it was running and before IPSF remotely deleted it.

    I'm sure the app monitors all processes and doesnt decrypt itself unless there are no unwanted ones. We need an emulator to run it on.

    Since iPhoneSIMFree's App doesn't do anything without authenticating the IMEI with their sever, it would be only clever if they simply put the App available for download or even in some of the Installer App's repositories.
