    Default [hardware unlock] done. Should we seal our circuit boards??

    Hi all,
    Now that we've all scratched the crap out of our iphone circuit boards to do the h/w unlock I'm worried about oxidation - an unlikely but possible issue in the years to come.

    My circuit board experience says that these boards are sealed for a reason to prevent oxidation, rust etc.

    Are people re-sealing their contact point after completing the h/w unlock? if so, what are you using? I'm thinking a small dab of hot glue will do it but thought I'd get some more opinions. Realistically this is a tiny concern but better safe than sorry.

    Thoughts?

    I think hot glue is fine.. i don't think there would be a reason to use it again... anyhow the glue can be cleaned if for any reason you needed to use it again..

    Silicons would definatly do it, but hmm, seems like 'overkill'
    i'd go for the glue, there will probably be no reason to do the A17 testpoints again, because you have a 3.9 Bootloader at the moment.
    Congratulations on that, i still got 4 phones to downgrade...
