How difficult is it to unlock iPhone? The start up screen says it all (Slide to Unlock, LOL).

Seriously though, when you need to utilize a buffer overflow exploit and SSH to replace system files on a cellphone, it's definitely not for the faint hearted.

it's comforting to know that in most cases, you can set iPhone to recovery mode and restore the default settings (Turn off, hold Home key and plug the USB connector. iTune will deal with the rest).
