Hmm yes. As I recall, the code is stored in CAL area, so it’s interesting how that deb file writes to that in open mode.
Perhaps knowing this could allow to disable the big warning screen in open mode also, without having to back-2-back flash.

A start I guess, would be use strace to try and track what’s going on.

well, imo patched devicelock implementing file storage or so, code was not disclosed because it's not secure.

Exactly this is the sentiment I don't want to see; "code was not disclosed because it's not secure"

Now how does it help security to keep the vulnerabilities hidden?

Which is why we need not only a “working” solution, but the code to review what’s happening .

Do you know more than what you are telling ?

IIRC, it is not secure and it stores the pass in a file. It just prevents a normal users access. It replaces the original functionality rather than enabling it.

Then a warning should be issued to users using this solution!
