Many Apple TVs died to bring you this information. I've finally got around to documenting some of the basics around the debug port. No, this is not enough to checkra1n it, but it is part of the picture.

checkra1n is one of the least-likely-to-be-used maliciously possible attacks against iOS; framebuffer is altered as to make it tamper-evident, code is ran thru obfuscation and resources are validated in several places.

When Intel released patch for CPU vulns last May, it said the patch fixed all the vulns. But researchers at say this isn't true and Intel knew it. Intel asked them not to disclose this and to alter conf. paper about the vulns. My story for

I'm not aware of any such jailbreaks. Before was released, the last device which could be jailbroken from DFU was iPhone 4. Most iPhone users have never used DFU. I don't think it is possible to use Unicode characters to enter DFU.

Unless they have a way to enter DFU mode without user interaction, they shouldn't be able to use from a charger. Even if they did, they would need to reboot the device to pwn it, which would be noticeable unless the device died before it was plugged in to charge.

Last and FATAL HW exploit on ESP32. Using this, an attacker is now able to decrypt the firmware and install its own (encrypted) malware PERSISTENTLY. No Fix on current ESP32 , vuln is here forever 😮 Enjoy:

The good news is that you can buy the new 16” MacBook Pro with 64GB RAM and 8TB SSD! If you do that, you probably won’t ever need to upgrade. The bad news is that it costs more than $3000 extra today to upgrade to that configuration.

For devices where RAM and Storage is soldered, they say it “is built into the computer”. At least, this used to be the case, as far as I know, until today. After today, it seems that this is no longer a reliable indicator.

Language on the Apple Store says RAM and Storage “is not user accessible”, which is the language they use for other devices where those are not soldered to the logic board. I don’t know why they chose to use that language if those components are soldered. It is inconsistent.

I deleted my tweet which suggested that 16” MBP RAM and storage was not soldered to the logic board. I concluded that based on language used in the Apple Store, which usually matches device internals. It seems that is not the case this time. 🤷‍♂️ I’m sorry, I wish it was true.

Is the SSD soldered also?

Note: I could be wrong. This is based on language used in Apple Store, which (usually) seems to be consistent with device internals. It is not yet confirmed. But I hope it is true.
