MFC Dongle / iP-Box

Post Posted: Jan 15, 15 05:37

Good Morning,

Just a quick question to find out if anyone has used either the iP-Box or MFC dongles from Teel Technology for unlocking iphones and the like?

We are interested in buying a few but would like to know how well they work or if there are any alternative products that will do the same thing.

We bought both device a couple of weeks ago.

Both work very well for iOS devices running iOS 7, disabled or not. Tried it with iPhone 4, 4s, 5s, ipad mini. Doesnt work with ios6- and ios8.

In fact, it can work with ios 8 but it needs an adapter that reboots the device after 4 password tries. Both devices just came up with the adapters. Havent had the chance to try them yet. At the moment, it doesn't work on disabled ios 8 devices.

The MFC box requires a computer to program it before each operation and to retrieve the passcode once it's found. The IP-BOX is more standalone. It does not need to be reprogrammed continously. You can start or resume a cracking operation using the button on the box. Once found, the code will blink on the box.

The IP-Box is easier to use, but it's documentation and support sucks. The only instructions/tech support is through the GSM forums, by people barely speaking English. The MFC dongle has it's own website with clearer instructions. The technical support is also done through GSM Forums, but the MFC Team is more present on the forums than ip-box.

Also, very important thing is that if the device is configured to wipe after 10 passcode tries, it WILL without any confirmation or warning. So, it is very important to explain the risks to your clients/investigators.

So, it is far from being perfect, but it can get you into devices that you were locked out of before. And it's cheap so, imho, definetly worth the price.

I've been using MFC Dongle successfully for around 2 months now. It enables you to start from a specific number, enter partial password or start with the most popular passwords first so you can greatly reduce the time it takes to discover the password. It seems to get quite a lot of updates and support (on GSM Forum) is pretty good.

Successfully used it on iPhone 4s, 5, 5s, iPad 2, 3 and 4. It can also be used on some HTC's, Samsung's and Macbook's. Amcurrently awaiting the iOS8 update to be delivered (apparently days away...).
