Lack of keys

Hey, I was wondering, is there a lack of keys to pretty much everything for the reason I suspect? I vaguely think I've read somewhere that older firmwares didn't encrypt anything but the rootfs. Is this true? Thanks! --rdqronos 16:03, 26 July 2011 (MDT)

I think "loosely encrypted" describes iOS 1.x's files more accurately. iOS 1.x used a different encryption method, called IMG2, on the firmware files. All of the files (except for the filesystem DMG, of course) were encrypted with a common key, known as Key 0x837. --Dialexio 17:44, 26 July 2011 (MDT)
Oohhh. Thank you! That's good info to have. --rdqronos 14:05, 27 July 2011 (MDT)
