potentially useful facts
Hey, even if we can't crack smart_io, we already learned something potentially important from where it is located, if it is what we believe it to be. the HTC Whitecards are SD cards, and not sim cards. The phone will not boot up with a bland Smart_io, so it is waiting for the SMART_IO to tell it something very important, most likely whether or not it should lock down the bootloader. Potentially, we could create our own whitecards for our devices.
