    except that the passwd file isnt used unless you can force the thing in to single user mode.. (this is all speculation based on the comment at the top of that file) :hs:

    sure, it's a baby step, but given that the full iPhone restore image is in people's hands, this is pretty significant -- if they can figure out a few low-level things on boot, they should have unfettered access to the iPhone OS provided they can get to that point. It might come down to emulating the ARM hardware, who knows.

    still exciting stuff I think :)
