IPhone Dev Team Statement re Apple's Claim that Hacks can Damage the Iphone

"From the current download numbers we assume an amount of about 500,000 free phones worldwide, still growing every day. The removal of the lock bug was a major step forward in the iPhone development made the iPhone free and useful to anyone, not only to those in certain countries.

Speaking of "damage" done to the firmware and unauthorized access to our own property (?), Apple now announced the next firmware update we may expect later this week will possibly break the handset of all of us free users in the world intentionally.

As we know better and that the removal of the firmware problems build in in favor for ATT is not causing "damage" as they want to make us believe, we will provide you with a tool in the next week which will be able to recover your nck counter and seczones and even enables you to restore your phone to a factory like state if you are really minded to update your phone to the "damaged" new firmware still having the lock bug, which prevent you of the usage of your property.

The motivation in this planned massacre on user phones is questionable, as if we can prevent the handsets from breaking, why can't apple do this too?

In the meantime we advise you not to update your free iPhone with the upcoming firmware as the important parts will be floating around the net anyways and wait for the next version to be fixed to work proper with your carrier and not break your phone."


Some Tips for user:
- snatch a copy of a 102 fw restore package now and keep it
- don't update to new firmware
- if you want new features, I am sure they will pop up somewhere around you shortly for single install.
- wait for new firmware being analyzed
