Anybody got the poop on the iPhone hack?

Hey,

Anybody hear of the hack making the iPhone available to other carriers besides ATT?

Since I'm not sure whether it's kosher

Since I'm not sure whether it's kosher to link here in the forum, I've sent you a PM containing a link to the iPhone hacker's blog. Enjoy.

I'm sure it's legal.

there was a law passed recently saying that carriers must unlock their phones if the customer requests it. Besides, we just want to talk about it, right?

if not, then sosumi.

I got the PM . . .

Hey,

. . . but I ain't got an iPhone. A local kid in NYC did the hack and it's all over the news. And on NPR and on . . . whatever. Everybody is talking about it.

Also, it's a hardware hack AF

Also, it's a hardware hack AFAIK. There are more than one method, but the one I've read about uses the JTAG port.

I suggest that everyone read

I suggest that everyone read this:

http://www.engadgetmobile.com/2006/11/23/copyright-office-rules-that-consumers-can-legally-unlock-cellpho/

based on that, it looks like AT&T/Apple have no right to sick their legal hounds on the folks offering this hack. But, it looks like they did, and they have delayed the unlock indefinantly.
