Feel free to check what I'm saying

So you're saying another 1000 euro is available if somebody can crack it again?

I know it's a low priority competition prize and I'm not really owed anything, but it's just disappointing considering I've been waiting since March and it would only take someone a few minutes to sort it out.



If PayPal's too difficult, I'll accept 100000 loyalty points

Low priority or not, you were a winner in something you entered honestly, imo they should have paid up on the prmosied date! good luck with getting your monies owed.

if you have two methods ( and have them revealed ) you should pay both as you are making profit/not loosing money thanks to both techniques

Heh, I wouldn't mind. If I win the prize I think I'll use it to upgrade from my 9.99 RPS1...

Hello
We have 2 winners with 2 different methods.

We're just patching MoMi for the 1st method and looking to see if the 2nd way is really feasible on a jailbroken device.

It's €1000 per each method that works and we are watching the logs to know who did it first and for which method.

All the best

1 day, not bad. Hope it's not due to poor programming on OVH's side

So OVH has gone as far as translating the title, then gave up? I can understand... Even my own Frenglish translation did a shoddy job...

Good evening,

Momi, which is available on Apple's AppStore is upgrading to version 1.4. There's a few new features (see changelog).

Also, you can now geolocalise your ID with your iPhone or iPad. This will be very useful to take advantage of promotions that are geolocalised for the city, the country etc ...

So that's exactly it! Are you able to hack the GPS system we have enabled on Momi?

Go for it! I'm giving €1,000 to the person who succeeds in hacking our system. To earn this amount you must: - spoof the coordinates of your nic in our database to "0.00 0.00" - successfully validate this spoof with the signature and the checks that we have set it up - and announce the method used on a site. It must be reproducible, meaning that almost anyone should be able to spoof this validation and succeed.

Those are the rules of the game The community will decide if your method works or not and then who wins the €1,000.

Download the App here:
http://itunes.apple.com/en/app/momi/id410337385?mt=8

You can also use a jailbroken iPhone. All shots are allowed!

If you win, you need to send me your bank account details and I will make the transfer within the week. Feel free to talk about it around you. It would be a shame to miss an opportunity to make easy money ... Really easy? ... So? Hack? or not to Hack?

All the best
