    Exclamation Hardware hacking the inside of iPhone?

    I'm curious if there actually a hardware method to unlocking OTB 1.1.2. I have seen hints of such things, but have yet to have any concrete information about the subject.

    If someone could be so kind, to either point me in the right direction or explain the process itself, it would be great appreciated. All I've seen is that you need the flash the ram that BL 4.6 is located on. Now, I don't know where that is on the phone or the exact way in which you do that.

    Disclaimer: Any comments about "your stupid to try this" or "have fun with an expensive paperweight", will simply be ignored. I'm looking for links to information or information from individuals, if they would be so kind. Criticism will not help anyone but those who are criticizing and even then that is a trivial pursuit of fun at another's expense.

    Yes. Just disassemble the comm chip, flash it, reball it, put it back on.
    There are some tutorials on this forum. Try Search.

    Thank you for the reply, unfortunately I don't know the term to search for... would it be hardware hack? Flashing ram? I'll try some out now, but if you could link me to one it would a super big help.

    Again, thank you.

    reball .
    i don't think you are willing to spend that much money and take on that much risk to perform a hardware unlock assuming you are a n00b.

    Look for posts by jeffdak He has removed, reballed, and re-flashed the Intel NOR chip of his stock 4.6BL iPhone to use the 3.9BL instead.

    Obviously, removing and reballing an 88-ball NOR-flash takes some finesse. I think that's what NotFound is referring to.

    Don't think we're insulting your intelligence by insisting you can't do it. The simple fact is that you don't have the equipment necessary, and judging by your posts, you don't even know the half of what you are getting yourself into. I know what mindset you're in because I have been in the same one myself, but unless you work with electronics professionally and you have done this kind of thing before, you will end up bricking your phone, there is no chance for success. Realize that the people on this forum stand to gain nothing from convincing you to not attempt this, we are insisting for your own good.

    Just to put this into perspective, the people who have the skills and equipment necessary to perform this kind of procedure don't need a tutorial to complete it. They're the ones writing the tutorial.

    Thank you for what I'm looking for. That was simple enough

    I hear JTAG is also a possibility, a lot easier than desoldering a BGA.
