    Gecko iPhone toolkit

    I hope this is the right section for this post...I came across a free download for gecko iPhone toolkit yesterday. A friend brought his iPhone for me to fix. His kid changed the password on him and he tried so many times he ended up disabling it. I know what to do in these situations but he needed the phone back fast as he was going on vacation. I searched if there was a faster method and came across the above mentioned toolkit. I didn't use it as I would like to familiarize myself with it first and my friend didn't have much time. I was just wondering if anyone has ever used this before to fix a disabled iPhone and is it quicker than other methods?

    It's the only method I use to recover passcodes for my customers. It works just like Redsn0w, actually it uses Redsn0w. It creates a custom ramdisk and then shows you a readout of the passcode. Since it requires limera1n, it will only work on iPhone4 or lower.

    That is interesting. I don't get many people with passcode problems but I'll definitely use it next time I need it. Thanks for the info!

    Do you know if this method will ever work for the 4S?

    Only if they discover a bootrom exploit for the A5/A5X processor

    Question

    Once you use the exploit and finish, are you left with a jailbroken phone? or does the redsnow just load into RAM and once you reboot you're back to normal unjailbroken, where your phone will be read by iTunes etc. I don't have a backup on the laptop yet or I'd use tools to extract the passcode from there. I've read a lot on the mechanics of jailbreaking w/Redsnow or Absinthe but all the descriptions of using the Gecko package end at retreiving the passcode. This is my phone which my kid messed up. I don't really want to keep the jailbreak or have Cydia on there at this point as the phone is still new and under warranty and I just found out that Best Buy somehow sold me a refurb as brand new (shrink wrapped in box!) so they are willing to exchange it. I don't want to do a reset and lose all my emails etc.

    Once the Gecko toolkit finishes you simply reboot your phone by resetting it and it is just as before. The RAMDISK is simply temporary. The device does not get jailbroken in the process. You note the password in the Gecko log (on screen) and type it in once the phone reboots. Simple.

    Gecko iPhone Toolkit.zip This is my upload of the file, I run it in sandbox mode so I'm not sure if it's virus-free. Running a scan now, will report back.
