This is just a curious question, I'm new here so if I'm breaking a rule correct me, don't assault me. I was just curious about this whole anti-theft security presented by iOS7. Really nice feature, pretty much does its job so far. But not everyone out there is a thief and its sad to see these iPhones sometimes go to waste. For example I came across an iPhone 5S in a friends car one night. She didn't know who owned it as she's constantly driving multiple friends everywhere. She kept it a while and asked around to see if anyone lost it, everyone said no. Except for one friend who left back to his country permanently. So she contacted him and he said he DID lose it, he did ask it be locked (it had his contact information set in by Apple if the phone was found), BUT since he left the country, he sold the replacement iPhone and just left. He said he didn't mind her keeping the phone. She understands how this whole lock and Apple ID thing works, and the guy knows nothing about his Apple ID. Before she could contact him again he got arrested in his country for something and he won't be out in a year or two. Now she cannot contact him to recover it, so its a brick. She knows I love messing and modding phones so she let me keep it. Now I have a locked iPhone 5S, mint and unlocked carrier which is practically a brick. So I got curious and wondered "what if." I know how iPhones and Androids run on an app system. For example I own a rooted Android with a custom ROM, kernel, the whole nine and I know that everything runs as an application, typically in .apk format. I deleted the lockscreen app from the system to toss in a totally different one. You can delete certain vital system apps and kill your phone (always fixable). Same with the iPhone. When I had my jailbroken iPhone 4S, I deleted the darn Game Center from the stock apps to avoid it harassing me in every game I'd play. That made me wonder "what if." What if we locate and destroy that app to configure the phone, or at least that Apple ID log in section? Now I don't condone stealing and am 100% in favor for Apple's new approach on smartphone security, but what about those of us who actually have a "good faith" motive to get passed the security? Its just a curious question in which I would love to hear opinions and possibilities. I understand the next stump would probably be accessing system folders and so on, but you must walk before you can crawl so I'm focused mainly on my theorey. Please take this seriously.
