Airport Extreme 802.11n Drops Connections

January 9th, 2008 10 comments

I recently bought this beautiful piece of hardware.
Gigabit, 802.11n, USB port for HD, stability, power, design…
But I quickly ran into a problem, the wifi connection was dropping after couple of hours.
Nothing I could do about it but rebooting the airport extreme.

Really annoying, as I bought this device specially for more stability and power with wifi.

Here is the solution : Disable IPv6 in the router config which is enabled by default !!
(Manual Setup -> Advanced -> IPv6 -> Local-link only)

Really it works! That’s the default setting on Time Capsule.

OTB 1.1.2 iPhone unlock: Progress Report

December 15th, 2007 12 comments

g0tcha and I finally managed to get the NCK (unlock code) value from the french iPhone
with the help of Geohot. Thanks mate.

It looks like this: “UnlockCode” = “NO=111111111111111&”;

The ‘1’ are to be replaced with digits, so I guess that the unlock code is 15 digits long.
Way too long for a bruteforce attack…

We doubt the unlock code has any correlation with any device ids, it is more likely
that Apple has it stored in a database for every single iPhone.

Reversing continues…

More detais in the extended post…

OTB 1.1.2 iPhone unlock: anySim open source?

December 2nd, 2007 No comments

In an effort to keep up with Apple’s changes at a faster speed, the iPhone Dev Team
is considering open sourcing AnySIM, the free unlocking solution for the iPhone.

In an exclusive talk with Gizmodo, iPhone Dev Team member Sam said that this move
could “open a lot of possibilities for the future,” mainly in terms of the speed of the
updates and avoiding sloppy and possibly dangerous binary patches.
