Jon Lech Johansen (aka "DVD Jon") has done it again. Once again he's sticking it to the man and come up with a way to activate an iPhone without having to sign up with AT&T.
I’ve found a way to activate a brand new unactivated iPhone without giving any of your money or personal information to
AT&TNSA. The iPhone does not have phone capability, but the iPod and WiFi work. Stay tuned!
In order to be able to pull off this stunt you'll need to download his special iPhone Activation Server Software. But he's not made it simple for those wanting to break free of AT&T's grip - you need to be able to make sense of the magic numbers!
Magic iTunes numbers:
Offset 2048912: 33C0C3
Offset 257074: 28
Offset 257013: 33C9B1
This is so going to annoy AT&T.
