We don't have the keys to the bootloader and samsung is likely to patch it on phones sold in the future. Further this unlock doesn't allow us to load the same recoveries/roms/kernels other galaxy s4 devices have, the kernels and recoveries have to be modified to exploit this attack.
It's morel like if you forgot to lock your back door so your neighbor slips in it once or twice, you notice lock the back door and its back to secure.
Unfortunately this is not a bootloader unlock, it allows you to load unsigned kernels and recovery images but the bootloader must be exploited each time you install a new image. Further it's easily fixed and the next OTA from at&t/vzw is expected to patch it.
Credit cards are typically (although not always) unsecured. He said cell phones dont show up on your credit because they're unsecured debt, so by that logic if I don't pay my credit card bill it won't show up on my credit report either as my credit card is unsecured debt.
actually its a fancy shovel that collapses.
So you think life is best lived paycheck to paycheck with no backup in case of an emergency?
So you're saying a credit card doesn't go on your credit report if you fail to pay it?
is "camp toilet" some kind of fancy word for "entrenching tool?"
Is a camp toilet a fancy word for an entrenching tool?
So you're going to use your phone as a remote controller (remember this device only streams media off of google play nothing local and it has no user interface so you need another android tablet to do this) to choose songs and then rather than just using your phone to play the media you play it through the Nexus Q but use bluetooth so you're stuck in one room and can't move around...
Why would you stream music over bluetooth when the Nexus Q was designed with an amplifier built in intended to be hooked up to your speakers...
Your assumption is it wont used signed firmware, or that the station device wont detect your interference as a poor quality channel and switch to another access point to route around it. The microcells I've used use a vpn tunnel back to the network, if the firmware is signed and the key to vpn back is within a smartcard type device and thus unextractable, how are you going to do a MITM attack when every device will immediately disregard your own connection? not to mention the fines the FCC would rain down on you for doing that (for a picocell to work it would have to be using the normal licensed spectrum and not the wifi band)
If they were going to be releasing 4.2 for the GS2 then we probably would have seen it come out two months ago when 4.1 came out for the s2. And 4.1 is old 4.2 is the current one, google announced the Nexus S would not be getting 4.2, thus the nexus series of phones only gets two updates, just like any other series of phones google or otherwise.
If the picocell is built into the modem and the traffic never touches your home network how on earth would you rate-limit, filter or otherwise alter the traffic? You wouldn't ever have access to it, it would hit the dsl modem and go right out your line.
Nexus branded phones aren't much better. The galaxy S2 got an update to ICS (4.0) then an update to Jellybean (4.1) before updates were discontinued. That's two major updates for the S2. The Nexus S got an update to ICS (4.0) then an update to Jellybean (4.1) and google announced no 4.2 would be coming for the nexus S... That's just two major updates the the Nexus S, no better than the S2. The Nexus one was the same, update to Froyo (2.2) and gingerbread (2.3), then announced no more updates. The sad thing is the nexus series of phones really dont get more updates than anyone else, they just get to release the software update for their own devices first.
