Hey all you CDMA fans…got a little forensic gem for you that you may not have known about. I discovered this the other day whilst examining a locked Audiovox 8910.
BitPim does not explicitly provide support for this phone however, by choosing “Other CDMA” and selecting the modem port recognized by BitPim I was able to take a read (Caveat-only partial since a manual follow-up showed that BitPim did miss some areas)of the filesystem….
Did I mention that the phone has a security code!!!????
Yes, thats right, it went around the security code!!!!
I found the Security Code (plus the default) in the NVM filesystem area. It was located in the NVM_002 file starting at 119 and ending at offset 122 (1289). Concidentally this is the same file where the Banner is located (in this case starting at offset 57 and going for fifteen bytes and ending at offset 71 “WHERE”S DA MONEY”).
I confirmed the Security Code with the one given to the OIC and a manual unlock. I also confirmed the banner with a manual look.
This should work for other CDMA phones.
I hope this is useful to the community.
