People have figured out how to run commands on the serial interface of the iPhone, which apparently isn’t protected:
Your friends at #iPhone made a major breakthrough this morning.
we got a serial console working, here is how
the serial has the same pinouts as iPod serial
use a 6.8kish resistor from pin 21 to gnd
tie pin 11-sergnd to the real ground
use iphoneinterface to send the following commands in recovery mode:
setenv debug-uarts 1
that should work
IT GIVES YOU A FULL INTERACTIVE SHELL
I REPEAT, A FULL INTERACTIVE SHELL
The command list is:
You need a level converter, like the max 232 to make this work
This means that within a few days someone will package an unlocking program and an easier-to-use interface together to unlock the iPhone’s SIM card and make it do what it was really meant to do–let anyone have three or four Apple devices on their person.
