    Default Hungover Harware Unlock with no fancy tools (with pics)

    So i had a hangover today and decided enough was enough and i was going to give the hardware unlock a go. So i got some Safety Pins from the chemist reasoning the hinge would be perfect to connect a bit of wire to the pin without solder, this worked a treat so no soldering iron. I put some tape over the clips just in case my fingers grounding them fucked it up. The whole processes took about 4 hours as i double checked every step and read through things carefully as i have never done hex edits or worked at all with unix command line, almost all the information needed was there and i filled the gaps and errors with google. No red bull though im afraid as in Scotland Irn-Bru is the drink of choice for a sharp mind and stable hand.

    It seems to me if i can do this anyone with a brain and some patience can manage. here is some pics of my ghetto activation. Thanks to everyone who provided the info i will donate to the dev team at the end of the month when i get paid, i really apreciate your hard work.

    Great Job. Would you happen to have any pics of the pins connected on the board? Not sure if I am asking the right question. Lol, do you recommend a hang over so that it doesn't hurt as much if i fuck it up.

    I had to press the enter key with my big toe to run the command as i had no help, i was not gonna be able to rock a camera at the same time.

    Its very small but i found it easy to get a contact both times. Getting 2 lamps on it and using one eye helped me. Its really not that hard, the software side is the tough bit, even that is not too bad, just takes time.

    Ah yes, getting the wife's approval. That may be the hardest part of the whole thing.

    Good job! Can I ask what the hand/hacksaw was for? Looks like a pretty brutal unlock kit. What did the case and other bits look like after you were all done and dusted after unlocking and reassembling? Scratched & chipped to buggery?

    there is hardly a mark on it, i used a small screwdriver and it was pretty easy, you need a super small screwdriver for the three screws under the ariel cover, i used a sharp kitchen knife instead. but the iphone is 100% now ive even sorted youtube, so all thats left to do is sit in a bar with it on the table like a smug dick.

    Im in Edinburgh so not to handy for Aberdeen, but it can be done just take your time, thats the key. its took the whole day for me basically.
