Device not rebooting after 5 unsuccessful unlock attempts
Galaxy S 3 (I9300)
Type of work:
Communication (mails, contacting people, etc), Unknown
If a separate encryption password is in place and a PIN or password is set for the lockscreen, another security measure is active: After five unsuccessful attempts to unlock the screen, the device is rebooted and the attacker is faced with the much stronger encryption passphrase. This makes brute-force attacks on the lockscreen much harder.
This doesn't seem to work for me. I have an encryption password, and a different lockscreen password, and I've entered the wrong password 7 times in a row, and the device doesn't reboot.
This is with Replicant 6.0 0003.
