Bypass a passcode lock



Have you ever set a password on your iPhone and then couldn't remember what it was? Were you upset when you learned that the only way around this password was to restore the iPhone? RMPassword to the rescue! This is a desktop application for Mac users. It requires a couple things: you must be jailbroken, have OpenSSH installed on the iPhone (and turned on), you must have Wi-Fi turned on on the iPhone, and you must know the IP address of your iPhone. If you have all of that then you are in luck.

If you have a software firewall like Little Snitch, you'll have to allow the outbound connection. A couple lines of text will appear.
