based on a discussion we had on another thread, how hard is it to disassemble an iphone app (assuming its protected by apple fairplay). more specifically, if i have some security features built into my code (a password for example), how hard would it be to get it by disassembling the code.

thanks

Easy. Run your app on a jailbroken iPhone, ssh into it and attach with gdb.

Never treat the iPhone (or any other device, for that matter) as a trusted client.
