Calling all successful Hardware Hackers... Tips please!
Could any people who have successfully Hardware hacked their iPhone please post tips so as to help others do it.
I would say the two hardest steps and the most in need of advice are bridging the contacts and opening the phone, although the software can be tricky for a novice.
I will start off with my advice!
DON'T SOLDER! It is far to intricate and you are bound to mess it up unless you design and build nanobots for a living.
When using the needle method (this is the way I did it) make sure to scrape the A17 trace (the little wire you need to touch) until you can see silver. I didn't do that for ages and kept wondering why iEraser kept hanging!
Keep them tips coming! The more the better so people can be confident they can unlock their iPhones too...:)
