Are you the person that I went over this with today in chat, . SunShine an app that typically needs to be used ONE time. 99.9% of people will use it just once. Those that do use it more than once, probably really don't have a reason, but went s-on/locked for an unneeded reason.
It needs internet access for about 5 seconds total, that is it. It doesnt need it constantly, or everyday but like 5 seconds for the entire lifespan of it on your phone.
This is absolutely nothing like apple signing ipsw, and it will not be changed. If you want a solution that doesn't need an internet.
The only way this changes, if when people stop stealing, we grew tired of seeing our works packaged by shady companies and sold as hardware dongles for unlocking, or the "refurb companies" running them 1000x a day, while ignoring the commercial usage clause in the licenses.
No. Today is the first time we have spoken.
In a sense it is very much like apples ipsw servers. Their servers also require a internet connection for a few seconds while it fetches shsh blobs for a downloaded firmware.
And I'm sorry people have been steeling your hard work. That shouldn't discourage you to combat this through more sane approaches other than resorting to a digital rights media approach. Simple encryption in the app might be one approach. A MD5 database with salted hashes of legit serial numbers with corresponding IMEI or ESNs might be another approach.
It would take a hacker about 10,000 years to break a SHA-1 database with a 1024bit encrypted salted hash.
As for sunshine only needing a connection once for people with direct access to the internet that might be all hunky dory, but for those of us behind firewalls (multiple ones in my case) its a completely different ballgame.
It functions nothing like how ipsw, I do believe you are the person that was talking to me today or associated with him, you two are using the exact same arguments, flawed in the same ways.
If we used a local database, without internet connection, and everything was done locally to the device, it would take a matter of hours to figure it out, not 10,000 years.
If your firewalls are preventing you from using sunshine, turn mobile data on, or hop on a wifi hotspot somewhere else for a few seconds.
I still see a correlation between how apple signs its firmware files and how sunshine works. Perhaps my understanding of things is wrong but that is the way i see it.
And if it takes someone only a matter of hours to figure out then that is a issue with how well your encryption is designed.
My firewalls don't function like common ones you might know of do. I'm very much in the midst of a petri dish. I wish it were a simple matter of turning on mobile data or going through a proxy server, its not even close to that simple.
I think you should reconsider what you're doing here. Your wallets would certainly thank you in the long run.
Whatever similarities you may have had with someone else in chat i can't speak of but it sounds like i'm not the only one with such concerns.
There is no doubt that you have put much hard work into sunshine and firewater and i can't blame you for wanting to do everything you can to protect your interests.
Suffice to say, I hope you guys can keep an open mind moving forward.
