Actually, the iphone is ALWAYS on. Even when it is "OFF" it is actually still "ON". There is no hardware switch that completely removes power from all the electronics. Powering OFF the iphone just puts it into a deeper than normal sleep. Even if there was such a switch, you would still get smoke and flames if you punctured or shorted the battery. Moral of the story, don't go sticking sharp (or even dull) pointy objects into any iOriface.
LOL, HAHAHA iOriface!!!

On that note, I doubt using the phone until it shuts off will actually accomplish the desired effect of completely discharging the battery. If that is actually true, there will be plenty of voltage remaining inside the battery to fuel a fire that, as seen, is unstopable.
In the R/C community, we incinerate 4000mah Li-Po batteries at an alarming rate. Seeing the fire this phone caused, you can imagine how much damage our "misused" hobby Li-Po's generate. :eek:
Hope that tidbit of battery experience helps someone get further with this project, safely.
I know this isn't funny..
But i keep imagining how the situation might've played out and its funny.
Sorry to hear what happened but i think you just showed alot of people out there, hardware unlocking is no easy feature, and only a few certain are out there that have successfully done it ad have no problems
I'm chickening out and waiting for the software unlock, cause i don't have the guts to do a hardware unlock
