NCK attemps used, any help? (was: Any Dev's ? [...])
Apologies for the thread title, but this board is so active, important requests get lost in many other topics that are either duplication of existing material (if only people searched) or are trivial requests that again have been discussed several times before and can be fixed (if only people searched) :-)
I have followed this whole scene for months now (from the beginning), and whilst not part of the dev team, have helped many people by having a good understanding of all the processes that led up to today which many people might have missed coming into the scene later on.
Now I still could be wrong about certain things, I'm not ashamed to admit that but I will now get onto the issue at hand :-)
I spoke at length on IRC the other night with a guy who is having an unlock problem. I could tell this guy knew what he was doing which is why I was intrigued to see why he was still having trouble. He was getting an "error" trying to issue the Facility Lock/Unlock command which is common for other reasons but I knew the usual 'novice' problems were not apparent here.
After investigation, I got him to run an AT+XSIMSTATE=1 and tell me the results.
The results showed that the Unlock Count have been reached
He has correctly re-flashed the firmware several times which proves that this does not help once the unlock count has been reached!
What I would like to know is if its possible Grey, Guest184 or the other guys, with their knowledge of reversing the firmware are able to bypass the 'Unlock Count' routine in much the same way that they bypassed the 'NCK" routine.
This would provide a perfect nor solution then, thus allowing any phone to be unlocked, even if the unlock counter has been reached.
Thanks in advance for your time.
