The Iphone that blew up during unlock attempt.

I have been reading that apparently lots of people from different parts of the world have found ways to unlock there Iphones so that they can be used on different networks.

The first person to successfully Unlock an Iphone was a 17 years old called George Hotz from New Jersey in the U.S., he then swapped his unlocked Iphone for a car (Nissan 350Z) and three other locked Iphones, after he had problems selling it on Ebay his blog is here
Mr Hotz blog,

But it appears not everybody has been able to unlock there Iphone successfully, apparently there was one attempt that went horribly wrong, and during the the unlock process the Iphone went up in puff of smoke, The picture below pretty much tells the story of the demise of the poor Iphone
After it happened they left comments on a forum about it,
“We were so happy, all the software part was done, so we started opening the Iphone. The antenna cover was a bit tricky but eventually it came off. Then we started to open the metal cover (after taking out the 3 screws) and PUFF, up it went in smoke, I think my colleague must have touched something. It literally went up in black smoke. I was so hot that when I tried to pick it up I burnt my fingers. So, this is for sure the most difficult part of the whole process. I don’t know what he did, as I had just stepped out of the room to fetch something when I heard a scream…they got such a fright.”

Soon they will probably be unlocking the Iphone for next to nothing, so unless you are very brave its probably best not to open an Iphone and play around.

Good work, Melody, thank you.

Bayang magiliw
Perlas ng Silanganan,
Alab ng puso,
Sa dibdib mo'y buhay.

Lupang Hinirang,
Duyan ka ng magiting,
Sa manlulupig,
Di ka pasisiil.

Sa dagat at bundok,
Sa simoy at sa langit mong bughaw,
May dilag ang tula
At awit sa paglayang minamahal.

Ang kislap ng watawat mo'y
Tagumpay na nagniningning,
Ang bituin at araw niya
Kailan pa ma'y di magdidilim.

Lupa ng araw, ng luwalhati't pagsinta,
Buhay ay langit sa piling mo;
Aming ligaya, na pag may mang-aapi
Ang mamatay nang dahil sa iyo.

Good weekend
