WTF | :WTF: Once they have the PIN they simply log on as if they are the user. In what world does the user have to decrypt their own phone and find the key to do it? At no time was the dispute with Apple ever about finding the key or decrypting the data. It was entirely about the failsafe which meant that a brute force crack of the PIN would result in a self-destruct if it was unsuccessful in the first few attempts.

So they say. I've yet to see any unequivocal proof that this is the case.

that means that all phones are cracked from a logical point of view


Well, not all of them, obviously. But this would have been the case irrespective of who employed it first and for what reason. You don't seriously think that Apple's decisions affected the desire of hackers and crackers, white or black hatted, to claim victory over Apple's safeguards at the earliest possible moment? If this crack is real then it has always been possible and its discovery was always inevitable. If it was as easy as the manufacturer revealing that they had a way to bypass their own security to stop anyone other than the manufacturer attempting it we would have been free of the bad guys and the security consultants a long time ago!
I am not a number. I am a ... no, wait!
