    I bet most buyers will be people wanting to spy on their spouse or kids.
    If you have to spy on your spouse you really should consider a divorce.

    If you have to spy on your kids then you are a failure as a parent.

    Jonathan Zdziarski figured out three years ago how to read everything off and iPhone, even after being wiped, that he wanted. Accessing everything on an iPhone, with or without a password, is old hat. All this is is a home version, this isn't new and groundbreaking.
    Not entirely true if done properly. A proper wipe 1. wipes the data, 2. fills up the spaces with more garbage data in order to prevent clusters of potentially damaging information from forming by overwriting the data, 3. repeate steps 1 and 2 multiple times.

    This isn't 100% guaranteed but someone won't just be able to "read everything off an iPhone even after being wiped." It will require lots of work if even possible to reconstruct everything. That is, if the data you're looking for is still there and hasn't been overwritten already.

    So answer me this. Since the "unlock" code, which is only for your iphone, is "known" by your iphone, would the "factory unlock" code be stored on the iphone, and possibly be recoverable with this new russky software?
    If I buy the home edition, can I find out my unlock code, and thereby factory unlock my iphone? Sure beats the heck out of brute force unlocking, or is this what this is?
    If the password for factory unlocking is stored on the phone, i should be able to find it. right?
    I realize i am opening a new can of worms, but is finding a password on my legally purchased phone so i can use it as the U.S. Government has approved (unlocked) illegal?
    I think not!
    just good luck finding the dang thing, right?

    It's not a code stored on your phone. It's a code generated by unique device ID's of your phone and a key held on Apple's servers. And no, it can't be cracked.

    if it is for personal use... why would you need it? you don't know YOUR OWN password?? and if you want it to see someone else's info, first you need to get into their computers and get the file from it. I personally think it's useless

    Nadda. U're being a smart parent. Keeping a close eye on the kids IS part of being a good parent.

    I don't have kids so maybe I'm not qualified to say this BUT you need to keep an eye on your kids. The reason is, they are kids, thus they are not mature enough to make adult decisions that could potentially put them in harms way or get them in legal trouble. Simple as that.

    That's not completely true. See the iPhone has 2 partitions, one for the system files, the other for the media. So while you may be over writing the media many times, the system partition still contains data that might be useful, such as settings, contacts, history, caches, etc.

    sytem partition contains the files for the OS which is anything that doesn't get erased during an action that erases all content and settings. anything that gets erased during that procedure will be overwritten when new content is loaded to the max potential.

    in other words, if you expect that your settings, contacts, history, caches, etc. will be preserved if you factory reset(erase everything) on your iphone then you will be sorely mistaken and you will kick yourself unless you backed up your content. this is why you are supposed to regularly sync with itunes to update and create backup copies of what is on your iphone in case you lose important data.

    As someone that has personally recovered data from disks that were accidentally over written or lost, there is always going to be something left over that can be viewed, even partially.

    Not even.
    This deals with the backups on your computer's hard drive.
    Jon's methods are about restoring, jailbreaking, entering ssh and running data recovery software on it.
