There's a reason Chpwn made a FAQ page. And that reason I'm not too sure of now. I see a lot of questions being posted and wasting people's time. I myself will start reporting people for spam if the question is already answered clearly on the FAQ page. This is getting ridiculous.


Located under the search bar at the top. It loads on every page/question and it's written in Black and Blue. And there's another link to it in the top right corner. No excuses for not being able to check it first.

@jpwest Those tools to read your device when incapacitated: Did you mean the iDevice or the user?

That was @comex, but the point still stands. Read the FAQ, it's very good.
