    Talking what will happen without soldering? geohot method

    What will happen if you do all the steps in hardware unlock without doing actual soldering. What error we will get? Did any body try? May be if that error is circumvented by a software may be a software unlock. Just a guess

    The iunlocker tool will fail.

    expanded:

    The iunlocker tool will fail to write the new code to the bb because it needs to write it in an area that's usually protected by the chip itself. The soldering puts the chip into debug mode which allows that write to happen.

    But iunlocker is the only app to fail. And if the short-circuit is not good, iunlocker just displays an error asking to connect the testpoint. And you can try again. But every other steps can be done without having +1.8V and a17 connected. Connection is only needed for 1s when iunlocker starts until it ask to turn off the switch.

    Default Would this work?

    I don't have an iPhone and know nothing about the test points but, judging from the needle method, couldn't you just press a small piece of lead (like a fishing weight) or wadded up ball of aluminum foil down with your finger for the the required 1 second?

    It's hard to see what actually gets connected but this photo makes it look like the two points are right next to each other and are level. If so, would it be enough to just make contact between the two points with something conductive? You could protect everything around it with a plastic washer and just mash the foil ball or fishing weight down on it for a second.

    No idea if this would work

    That's what I did. A small wire connected to both ends when launching iunlocker. That's the same idea with needles, but much easier to have the connection than keeping a wire on the trace with one hand while to other press return on the keyboard. First time I failed and iunlocker asked to connect testpoints. I tried again (well 3 times in fact) and it was fine.
