'HANGING BACKCOVER' in the 'RUNNIN-TERMINAL-WHILE-TESTPOINTIN'
In this message i'd like 2 embedd all my gratitude and states some thoughts that soared my mind during my H/W-Unlock Journey..: :··an attempt 2 give somethin back is also there...
My Iphone is a 1.1.2OTB(week48), bought in USA, and in that moment i hadn't a clear pic of the whole unlock process but knew that there was a newer, painfuller version of security update by apple, but still no real idea at all...
The iPhone is here in Lima(Peru) not that popular in terms of sales(due 2 price) so isn't the hacker comunity and the Turbo-, Supersim and Simclon Chips r unavailable due 2 low demand, so no Chip-Hack option either.
If i wanted 2 convert my iTouch in this fancy 2-way-multi-comm-device, was only this (rather invasive) H/W option; i also kinda felt that wait 4 a S/W solution wasn't a time-reliable chance 2 take. So i played my H/WUnlock card, hopin' 2 have the gods of electrostaticy & guardians of magnetism on my side.
My adventure started withouth WiFi (dont havin a good AP is like startin Zelda and not gettin the sword), unaware and relyin on hook some where up just when needed. But its usefullness shined in the 1st and last (easier) parts of my 3 chapter saga. In the 2nd, an obscure chapter, i converted myself (first) in 2 a iPhonicide, killed him erasing his baseband, loosin wifi, IMEI, ICCDI and the whole pack of major errors, pitfalls&mistakes. I did them all.
...whothefck was goin 2 help me now with this 'Repair needed' message? i had basically an iZombie and thought that i've lost this fight against all that I was fightin with...[apple, at&t, the system's establishment & myself, among others]
So i'd like 2 point out a couple of issues that might help some1 in a dessperate and/or hopeless state of mind, share hope and say that IT WORKED AFTER MAKIN ALL MAKEABLE MISSTAKES; restarted after ieraser, wifiless, unidentified, unbootable...i even thought that had fried the Comm-Board, cuz made a tiny spark arch btween the inner metal case and one of the BATT cables while scratching the gluey part where they come almost together, so dont use anything conductive, but here's other minor issue: what material has these (non-conductive, very hard, unscratchable by steel) features and is easy 2 find(at home if possible)?
Anywayz, 1 of the most untreated/least discussed aspects is IMO, the HANGING & very UNPRACTICAL BACKCOVER in the RUNNIN-TERMINAL-WHILE-TESTPOINTIN process including all tries, retries, fails, refailures before success.
Its very stressfull for all these small connectors while workin. A noobster(like once myself) will stress these thin cables and microports 4 sure a lot, cuz once U open the cover (believe me, it cost u so much opening, that u'll try 2 keep em apart) there arn't many ways of havin the phone open but attached 2 the vital ON/OFF button, also nasty 2 operate in that disassembled state. After many refailures i came up improvising a solution that DEFINITIVELY helped me 2 breakthru.:::······>
I took an unused cd plastic case(those about 1cm thick, not the thinner newer that r about 0.5cm thick), took it apart and got rid of the inner -usually dark plastic- element that holds/clips the actual cd. I had now a clear box where an disassembled iPhone, say the 2 parts side by side, fitted wery well; and most important i could see thru it...but i realized that 2 type the comands in Terminal i needed a hole about the Terminals keyboard size, so i measure it and scratched it out giving me acces 2 keys and view to the prompting results. Masking tape held both elements in its place while testpointing; took 2 tables of same height and put my 'Unlock-array' in the gap so i could place an upwardfacing-mirror under it havin it all under control withouth havin 2 care of how ure goin 2 turn both parts after pressin enter, just about 2 pointtest. With this little helper i made it in the 2nd try. I can load some example pics up if any1 has interest..but its pretty clear 2 me
...so this is it 4 da moment, i'll try to post up other tips as I remember them...
Infinite Love and Gratitude 2 ALL of YA!!!
I'd would b awesome 2 hear from other successfull H/W Unlocks here in Peru...i'm still standin' alone cryin it loud out, still no local echo responses
