But battery ?

I’ve been thinking about the place where cryptographic keys module could be located and accidentally find  this  information .

The BlackBerry CS-2 Battery features a secure, cryptographic chip to ensure you’re using a battery specially designed to work with your BlackBerry device.

I am curious what kind of chip is that ? Can it be used for secure keys generation and storage for example ?

    I’m trying to reverse engeneer the *.debug in the simulator folder of blackberry JDE 4.3.0. I think that RIM has moved some packages and classes in the standard API jar(s).
    Did you try to force the *.debug ?

    No we didn’t. We are using JDE 4.2. Any good results for you so far ?

    I’m working on the header now. What I want to do is a stub.jar containing all the hidden classes and methods contained in the .debug files, in order to use *ALL* BB API’s.

  4. Dr. {B0lsen} says:

    Well, we’ve got all classes and methods, I mean ALL, but it is useless at the moment because in order to use all hidden classes or methods it is necessary to sign properly cod file. Otherwise it won’t work. Even if you are a developer and you have bought a signature from RIM it won’t help either cause a different type of signature is required.

    Damn! Actually the exposed APIs are very poor (expecially “low-level” APIs like Phone/PhoneListener and so on…).
    Thank you very much for the infos.
