This application is under development at the moment and needs a few testers.

at the moment this is a mac only piece of software, but hopefully soon we (RaYmAn, myself and a few others) will have a linux/windows version.

usage is simple, "tar xvf sbkdetect.tar; ./sbkDetect" while your device is attached in APX mode. it should take a few seconds to run, paste the result back in this thread along with the first few digits of your serial number (eg: B5OKAS...)

detection may not be 100% at the moment, as I lack a new SBK device myself to test against. but SHOULD work.

Thanks to RaYmAn for discovering how to detect the difference between the two devices.

If by accurate you mean am I unable to root? That is correct. It appears my TF is a unit with the currently unknown SBK, that being V2 (I presume).
