@dt "...By the way, it has been mentioned that many of these hacks for the iPhone have come from leaks inside Apple itself." That's the Social Engineering i'm talking about...

I did not say they did not do good work. I was talking about the way they go about their work. There are two different things. Apple does not lock the iPhone down simply because unlocked iPhones are still money and at the end of the day, Apple is a hardware company. For every iPhone that is unlocked, Apple can keep all of the proceeds and not share them with anyone. They make money from their partners and from guys like me that buy them and unlock them. This is a win-win for them. As for the encryption issue, you are completely wrong. I defy you or anyone else to crack, hack, smack, etc.... any military grade encryption. Considering I work for the govt and have first hand knowledge and experience with such systems, I can say with 100% assuredness that you are well off the mark. That is unless you have a Cray computer handy to crunch the numbers. So please describe this social engineering hack that you mentioned. By the way, it has been mentioned that many of these hacks for the iPhone have come from leaks inside Apple itself. This sounds very plausible considering how complex RSA and encryption schemes are.

dt: Don't you think the Dev Team has done some fantastic work? Why are you so negative? You think they are a bunch of kids...but you seem a little immature yourself. There isn't ANY secured digital media that hasn't been successfully hacked, from blueboxing to bluray ... if it was that easy to just "put military grade RSA" to use, then why haven't they already done so? Computers and computer programs are VERY complex systems, and there is ALWAYS a weak point or bug to exploit somewhere. And if not, then there is always the social engineering hack ...

@Rob, Thanks for explaining the obvious. This very reason is why I do not have much respect for the so called Dev Team. They act like a bunch of kids (what they are) and tip their hand time and time again. If Apple decided to really get pissed off and put military grade RSA or security on the iPhone, there is no one and I mean NO ONE that can crack it. Military grade security is NSA level encryption and quite easy to implement. So the constant whining crew that brag about their latest exploits are not doing anyone a favor.

@dean why would the dev team release the "hack" for the 1.2 firmware now? Just to give Apple a chance to fix the hack? You will have to wait like the rest of us when it's released and even longer until the 1.2 firmware is hacked and is safe to install. //Rob

The fact that you are asking this question and continuing to defend your actions are further proof to your ignorance. Apple published a release date. Go look it up. DUH!!!!!!

dt u r stupid because they already got their hands on the firmware and founded a possible way to hack i just want to know when does go online
dt - March 29, 2008 at 5:03am
@Dean, Are you really that stupid? Now all we have to do is wait for the idiotic Dev Team to hack it again and announce it so that Apple can patch the hacks.

alex_dlc - March 28, 2008 at 8:40pm
