Ok, so I've had to kick some side hustles to gain some money for that investment I mentioned earlier. As you may or may not know, I've had an iPhone since the Apple released them to the public. I found my phone was highly overrated, but it did bring my belt clip a lot of attention. I searched for ways to make up for its lost features like sending media via blue tooth, MMS messaging, and recording video. I was swept up with the "iPhone Hacking" community in a matter of weeks. Jailbreaking, unlocking SIM cards, etc.. done it all, and have recently been doing it for friends. I came across a guy who may or may not have stolen an iPhone. Unfortunately, it was locked with a passcode so he could not use it. iPhones' passcodes consist of the numbers 0-9 (ten numbers) making a possible 10,000 combinations. I found entering in each combination as tedious as keeping up with American politics.
How To Unlock An iPhone Locked By A Passcode (Windows):
- Place your iPhone in restore mode by first powering it off then holding the home button for a few seconds, then connect it to your computer.
- If your iTunes is up to date, it will acknowledge you that your iPhone is in restore mode. Choose the update and restore option to the lastest version of iPhone firmware. When the download completes, it will install the firmware automatically. Then iTunes Store will open and prompt you to place in some personal information to register/verify/activate you iPhone. We don't want to do this.
- Your iPhone is now cleared of all past data. But if you slide to unlock; you'll notice you can only make emergency calls. Proceed to Jailbreak, Unlock, and Activate. Keep your iPhone synced and minimize iTunes. Open your web browser and head over to my man Zibri's Zihone Blog ((http://www.ziphone.org/)) and download the latest version of ZiPhone.
- Open ZiPhone and click the Activate, Jailbreak, and Unlock button. (iTunes may run into an error during ZiPhone's process (Don't worry, it's cool)). Once ZiPhone is finished. Your phone is FREE! And ZiPhone also installs INSTALLER. So you can fully maximize the capabilities of your iPhone, like customization and all. ENJOY!
