Some of you might have read the article from Jonathan Zdziarski where he states that all your personal data is still on the iPhone after you have restored to a new firmware.
For the people who haven’t read it i’ll quickly explain.
When you restore your iPhone through iTunes, all it does is a quick format.
This means that all your data is still on the iPhone although no longer in the partition table.
If you use Jonathan’s iPhone Forensics Toolkit, it’s not that hard to get all the data back in the open.
This means that all your pictures, e-mails, cookies, etc,etc are visible to the next person who is going to own your iPhone !

I was planning to review BootNeuter together with the release of WinPwn.
But as it still hasn’t been released due to several little bugs that the developer want’s to fix, i will go ahead and review the BootNeuter app first.
I’ve had a lot of people who ask me, what is BootNeuter and why do i need it.
First let me explain what it does.
BootNeuter let’s you switch between bootloaders (for info about bootloader and baseband go here).
So why do i want to switch bootloader? Without going into to much technical details (if you’d like, we can talk about this, just drop me a mail), for improved Google Location and improved battery life if you’re running 1.1.3 or 1.1.4.
People who are running older firmware versions, should not upgrade to the BL 4.6
Ok now that we have that out of the way, let’s discuss this neutering thing.
What is neutering your bootloader?

I haven’t been able to post much as i have been busy with the creation of some SMS tones for the iPhone.
Some days ago friend came by and was complaining about the availability of sms-tones for the iPhone.
I promised him i would start working on it.
And now i can say i finaly figured it out.
The first demo is some star wars droid sound :) It does sound kinda nice. :)
