"PurpleFAT" is an Apple Factory Activation tool, assumed to be used in factories for UUT's (units under test). If the unactivated device is plugged into a computer and the software is run, it searches for the device and would activate it (Seems not to work and just plays a sound saying "Oh nooh!") PurpleFAT needs an activation sever. https://albert.apple.com/WebObjects/ALUnbrick.woa/wa/deviceActivation does not work.

Application can be locked for some security reasons, and requires a passcode when unlocking the interface (This passcode is stored in a string, when dissasembled can be found at __text:00003089)
