    And it's nowhere near as hard as they made it seem. It's only 2 wires soldered into an easily accessible spot on the phone.

    I disagree. Soldering traces are not an easy task (especially when the traces are about 26-27 gage; it does not take much heat to burn them.) I've had to repair many Nintendo wii mods where the customers burnt pads and traces off. I'm sure this type of hardware mod for the iphone will result in a lot of bricked phones. I don't recommend anyone doing this unless you are very skilled in soldering. I'm willing to fix mistakes, but that will cost ya.

    I'm gonna attempt this unlocking technique tonight... wish me luck.

    QFT. Traces are a pain to solder. I sense a lot of bricks.

    It's not illegal...unless there's something about how it's done that violates something in apple's cryptic TOS agreements.

    Oh...and I put together a zip of the how-to and the required files for anyone wanting a 1-stop shopping for the process...

    Cheers!

    Alot of people are going to open their phones. The iPhone is the highest awaited unlock. I have a felling there will be about 50 posts before Monday asking how to unbrick or "I melted my board, help"
