    Default Ideas Only!

    Lets Face it... no matter how many threads are started, all we are seeing is a back and forth battle and flaming between people who support Dev and those who are really only on here to reap the rewards of there hard work, and are willing to support anyone who comes up with a SW or HW solution for them.

    That being said, I am starting this thread for Idea's only. I am no Hardware expert, or Software expert. But ideas are what make reality. There is a way to help the Dev team do what they do, and tho it may seem ridiculous, it's by giving them thoughts or ideas which they may not have thought of. Remember...the Dev team is only a few people. Together we are many.

    My idea:

    Every GSM phone to date that i have ever had the experience of working with, has had some type of digital combination to unlock the phone...

    Nokia : +pwxxxxxxxx+1 or some such,
    Sony Ericsson has a button combo to an unlock menu.
    blah blah....

    I am wondering if there is a possibility of an hidden software unlock in the phone already, and IPSF team found it, and are using a algorithem to unlock the phone remotely. There are ways to unlock motorola's the same way.

    Just a thought...may have been tossed around... anyone else???

    in the video it takes a minute to unlock. So thats most likely a flash of a patched baseband. Futhermore on the invoice it suggests the unlock won't last past 1.0.2 which suggests a new baseband firmware in 1.0.3 is going to revert the lock. I think they have figured out how to bypass the signature check on the firmware file, either by removing the signature altogher (the way cable modems were uncapped) or some other backdoor signature.

    OK. So lets see. If we are to believe that IPSF has an actual SW unlock, but that it wont last past 1.02, then is it safe to say that they are actually changing the way that the baseband actually communicates with the Sim? Is there not a way to hack the baseband to look at a SPECIFIC Sig? i.e. (and this is prolly not going to make alot of sense) instead of it lookng only for an ATT Sim instead it looks for a TMO one or rogers or Orange etc etc? i know that makes it so the phone will be locked to that carrier instead, but it shouldn't be too difficult to create a sig for each carrier.
