Seems they cracked it already. Or did Apple cower behind closed doors?


The method (I gather) was copy the contents of the flash memory (The bit that stores everything) - automate the password trying, every time the limit number of "trys" is reached, re-copy from the copy - ad infinitum.


Brute force but doable.


I'm not sure if this model phone has 4 or 6 digit password, but once automated the 'doable' should be less than a couple of weeks.

FBI has always been able to crack the Apple 5, they did so in another USA case, do a search for "Djibo Case".


What people misunderstand is the FBI asked Apple to make a piece of software so that the FBI could always crack any Apple, without Apples consent.


Do note, that Apple, Google, Yahoo have ALL complied in the past with Court Orders, and provided assistance. The reason for Apples refusal was being ordered to make software to always crack Apple, which they felt (rightly) could eventually escape into the more public domain.


Few people remember that "TOR" was originally developed by USA Navy, and then "somehow" went into public domain.
