Is the /dev/mtd1 drive accessible when the device is locked over mass storage or any other mode?

Also, it's not so much that DES is weak... it's that the password is only numerical and probably 5 digits. If it was alphanum and 8+ chars it would take eternity to crack for any practical purpose
(Unless you're against the NSA, in which case you shouldn't be trusting only this level of security ... well, and just hide under a rock :P)
