Bypassing the iPhone passcode lock in live webcast

[Jonathan Zdziarski], a data forensics expert and iPhone hacker, will demonstrate in a live O’Reilly webcast on September 11, 2008, how to bypass the iPhone passcode lock security. Although the presentation is targeted towards law enforcement, it will probably viewed by a lot of hackers and geeks, who could use the information for good or evil. It also doesn’t strike us as very good security if the iPhone passcode is easily bypassed. Then what’s the point of having one?

    I wonder if this is along the lines of where you dial an emergency number, and then double tap the home button… giving you access to the favourites etc?

    A girl I met at a party said she new a cool trick. She unlocked my iPhone passcode in less than 2 seconds. There’s a quick cheat, but she won’t tell me. And no, she didn’t know my passcode.
