Bypass ios screen lock

Was reading up on some articles today and came across this one:

http://thehackernews.com/2013/02/how-to-bypass-ios-612-screen-lock.html

Can't confirm if it works or not as I don't have an iphone to test it on. Also, you need to do it on a computer that the phone has accessed before. Still seems pretty nifty though.

Holy crap that is awesome lol.
Free phone calls if you can jack an iPhone among other things.
Makes me think of Kevin Mitnick.
Nice post.

Wow and of course all their data.

The only thing though, even if you are able to swipe the phone is that this needs to be done on a pc that the phone has accessed before.

Well sort of the funny thing about this is, if you knew how to brute force it you wouldnt really care about a technique like this, since testing all 4 number combinations codewise takes like .5 seconds lol...
and if you have the phone could be done in a day by hand lol.

haha, well then I guess you'd have to really be trying to get someones info.
Cause you'd assume first you identify I guess your target, and you think he may have important information you want on his phone. So you do some SE, get to be his friend, and find an excuse to plug his iPhone into your PC (which really wouldnt be that hard), then you wait for him/her to use the bathroom or something, and proceed with the hack.

That's why iPhones have a timeout function...

Probably a way around that too @_@.
But that just points even more to the practicality of this hack then i guess.
And another question is, does the iPhone have to have been plugged in before because its not registered with your computer, or because your computer isnt registered with the iPhone?
If its the first, then Im sure you could fake some sort of credentials to make your PC think its seen that iPhone before

Also this brings up another question for me, can you mess with a phone at the hardware level to make it boot with a different (hacked) OS? Maybe one that doesn't lock?
