    Default iPhone Password changed itself - 4.2.1 JB

    Had this phone from the day Verizon released it, then i jailbroke it. wasn't til just a week ago that I decided to password it because i tend to leave it laying around. just yesterday I was writing a text msg, pressed the lock button, received a text msg back, went to put in my password, and it was changed.

    Apple+Verizon is telling me to reset to factory, but i dont want to lose all my numbers. I've tried using programs like iFunBox, iPhoneBrowser, etc... Nothing works. I tried deleting the keychain file.. That anit it. However I was told theres suppose to be a row inside of genp called DeviceLockPassword + Springboard, and after I looked, I can't find either. So I take it my phone just randomly erased a row of data?

    The passcode system has been significantly strengthened with iOS 4.x. The techniques you are trying are designed to work on iOS 3.x
    There are still ways to crack the passcode, but now it requires offline bruteforcing of the encrypted passocde - you cannot simply delete the passocde entry like you could on iOS 3

    I am very skeptical that your passocde suddenly changed. There must have been some other factor involved.

    Do you sync your iPhone to your computer regularly? That is likely a way to get most of your data back. Also, did you enable "backup encryption" ??
