Firmware 2.1 Wipes Data after 10 Incorrect Password Inputs

A major security Flaw in the iPhone was discovered a few weeks ago. This flaw bypassed the Lock and allowed access to Users private data. A workaround to fix that was posted here.

Apple has hence beefed up the Security in the new 2.1 Firmware and now provides a more secure option which Wipes all your Data if Incorrect Password is given 10 times in a row.

Check the ScreenShot below :

This option is currently available in the iPod 2.1 Firmware and I’m sure that it will be available in the iPhone 2.1 Firmware too.
