    Smile [NETWORK/PRIVACY] "UDID faker" - "Anti- Call Home" Apps

    Hi Everyone,

    Newbie request & hope to post on the right Section !

    We can see coming more & more devs (check out some dicussion on some related iPhone SDK "Official" boards ) who want to know where and who are using their app;
    Do you care ? I do. My privacy first, their lack of knowledge on how to protect their software, well there're good books for that.

    There are already some applications on Macos X => Glimmer Blocker, and this one app I run since it's first release & supported it:

    Little Snitch

    When you check out how many outbound connections endeavors from installed apps (each ports, protocols, TCP/UDP whatsoever), discreetly trying to "call home":
    Just unbelievable. And not for updates purposes only ! In my case, these apps are straight removed from my systems. I don't like to be spied. Period.

    When it's been released, I even payed & supported for the dev from the begining.

    Karl ( Objective Development's dev ) has confirmed to work on the iPhone OS.

    Technically it's OK as he confirmed it in a mail. Hope it's been released b/c I know this is the only Unix tools with GUI since we all need to block theses crappy apps ( but its my humble opinion, OK? ).

    So in a Nutshell (!) , here's my rough idea to fight it back & a bit sensitive case :

    Basically, I know what a "UDID faker" (sorry this term has came to my mind ) would have to do:

    1/ it would have to be a MobileSubstrate app with a simple gui (to enter/generate a fake udid; enable/disable the function for different apps would be best (like toggles).

    2/ It would have to run in the background and intercept any call for [UIDevice currentDevice].uniqueIdentifier and reply with the fake UDID.

    3/ There is already a faker for a iPhone's serial number & I get the source code so all it would need to extend it for UDID. but my lack of deep knowledge about coding in Obj-C and lack of time, I can't do it atm.

    So, A UDID faker will solve may current and future problems with web based apps and it would be a real win for ALL legit iPhone users.

    OK! I do apologize for this very long & first post !

    Of course, any inputs are welcomed or constructive suggestions about this.
    Note also that I'm not an native English speaking guy,please take this into consideration as well.

    Thanks in advance to have read it & hope to get feedbacks from you.
