OK lets ask this in a different way...
Jonathan Zdziarski is better known as the hacker "NerveGas" in the iPhone development community. He has created a set of tools capable of bypassing the iPhone password screen as well as recovering deleted information.
Example and Site:
Old videos but I think the software still works in the same way as described here:
Part 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=pl ... 75hrOxzQj0
Part 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=pl ... vXi1CZFBT0
iOS 3.X includes functionality to circumvent the passcode lock and remove the backup password
iOS 4 and 5 includes functionality to brute force the PIN lock, decrypt keychain passwords, decrypt raw disk and datastore files (Mail, app data, etc), and decrypt the backup password
His software looks ideal (Well done Jonathan) but I can't find it anywhere so does anyone know of any SIMILAR software that achieves some of the same results. Something legal, something in development.. or maybe some techniques you have developed yourself?
Any relevant information would be appreciated, thanks.
