Details are as follow:
- I do not need to know the password so I do not need to crack any 256 bit AES algo
- I simply need to remove password, so I did what I need only and nothing more

Counter details:

- You need the 256-bit key to access the EFI chip via the TPM
- You can't remove the password without having to reflash the EFI, something Apple's TPM device does

Then go into detail about how you access the encrypted EFI chip without tripping the security fuses and how do you reflash it once the password is removed.
