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.
