AFAIK this works on a backup of the device, not the physical device.


Ah, you're right. I just glanced at it before I went out the door.

I'm still curious if he's tried something like the tool in the video I linked to. That seemed fairly comprehensive.

I don't know german at all (regarding the video), but do you know at which iOS version Apple has started to do this?

I will contact this guy and ask for that...

Re: Locked iPhone

Thanks everyone for your help, but I failed trying to recover her pictures.

But on the other end, it's good to know that if someone steals your phone, they won't be able to get to your personal data!  :-\

But thanks again for all your help!

Re: Locked iPhone

Hi,

OK, I`ve asked the guy and that is what he told me..
If you type in the PIN x-times wrong the iPhone will go into locked mode, but don`t worry. You can boot another iOS over the cable, reset the counter and then use a brute-force-tools to recover the PIN.
If you have activated the feature hardware encryption (3GS, 4 and up) then the phone will protect with AES the RAM and a special protected area (I do not have an iPhone so I don`t know exactly what does that means). It will destroy the AES keys and everything is gone when you type in the PIN x-times wrong. The same feature is used for a remote wipe, independent what you have configured..

Thanks Matthias2012!

But regarding this:
