Before I go on chastising BradP for making you void the warranty on your iPhone, let's have a laugh at this quote:
BTW, this article could be good for women too. Lots of boyfriends are insecure and stalker-ish. So here's an easy guide to how to secure your iPhone from anyone who wants to control you, including boyfriends, girlfriends, fuck-buddies, parents, roommates, and any other weirdos that you may have in your life.
So, BradP, do you really say that the family and anybody the reader of your marketing email has sex with is a weirdo? The wording certainly suggests so.
But enough of that, and onto hacking our iPhones:
Here's the process, abbreviated:
1- Jailbreak your iPhone
2- Get BiteSMS from Cydia
3- Get LockInfo from Cydia
4- Set a password in the general settings of your iPhone
Even though jailbreaking is relatively common, it is not without drawbacks. Apple isn't especially fond of it either. To quote from their support document "Unauthorized modification of iOS has been a major source of instability, disruption of services, and other issues".
Apple strongly cautions against installing any software that hacks the iOS. It is also important to note that unauthorized modification of the iOS is a violation of the iPhone end-user license agreement and because of this, Apple may deny service for an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch that has installed any unauthorized software.
But, all is cool, because who cares if Apple tells you to GFY once your iPhone stops working due to certain hacks. After all, at least now nobody can snoop our your phone. Not even yourself.
Nice one, BradP!
I'm looking forward to your other emails, BradP, and I have a hunch that they won't disappoint me.
