    I realize that nothing is for sure with the possible unlock, but I'd still like to know how such an unlock would work. Would I have to keep my phone plugged into my computer with a program that guesses the code until it's done, or would I be able to pause the process and start it up once I was back home?

    Good questions.
    I wonder how that all will work and play out.

    There must be something else to this idea. I doubt musclenerd would have bothered talking it up at all if that was the case.

    I'll correct that statement. I was meaning something else. NCK tokens can be bruteforced but as those articles state, the huge magnitude makes it quite impossible.


    I think was thinkin of the actual unlock code input.

    Yeah, last time I heard about it, doing in regular computer it would take several years to do it, even on a supercomputer it will take months. but I haven't really see much about the new developments.

    From what I've been able to gather, they are trying to reduce the calculations required by retrieving a few known variables which will reduce the 40-bits which need to be brute-forced.
