iGlasses is some-sort of “Fake Cam” for OSX that allows you to add effects to the image you send when you use your web camera. In short, it is very expensive software and does not come close to the software available for Windows which are able to do much more: for example, display a cartoon character, etc... Nevertheless, iGlasses has a “cam” in picture feature that allows you to display a movie or an image to the person you are camming with, which makes it somewhat useful. This feature could be made better and we have yet to see some nice software that would give you a full set of features that will allow you to give an online presentation effectively.
iGlasses comes with a demo-timer protection that limits the application's usage to 7 days which can be very easily be undone.
The central point for showing nag and demo-screens is the
beginInteraction method which is responsible for showing these screens. It can be very easily subverted by directly (in this example) by jumping from
0x10000fc55 which bypasses the message dispatch of
methImpl_AppController_beginInteraction_: 000000010000fc14 55 push rbp 000000010000fc15 4889E5 mov rbp, rsp 000000010000fc18 66833D105C06000B cmp word [ds:_Main], 0xb ; JUMP! 000000010000fc20 E930000000 jmp 0x10000fc55 000000010000fc25 90 nop 000000010000fc26 488B3583BB0500 mov rsi, qword [ds:objc_sel_performSelector_withObject_afterDelay_] ; @selector(performSelector:withObject:afterDelay:) 000000010000fc2d 488B15CCC40500 mov rdx, qword [ds:objc_sel_displayNagMessage] ; @selector(displayNagMessage) 000000010000fc34 EB0E jmp 0x10000fc44 000000010000fc36 488B3573BB0500 mov rsi, qword [ds:objc_sel_performSelector_withObject_afterDelay_] ; @selector(performSelector:withObject:afterDelay:) XREF=0x10000fc20 000000010000fc3d 488B15C4C40500 mov rdx, qword [ds:objc_sel_displayDemoOverMessage] ; @selector(displayDemoOverMessage) 000000010000fc44 F20F100574B40300 movsd xmm0, qword [ds:0x10004b0c0] ; XREF=0x10000fc34 000000010000fc4c 31C9 xor ecx, ecx 000000010000fc4e 5D pop rbp 000000010000fc4f FF25FBD60400 jmp qword [ds:imp___got__objc_msgSend] 000000010000fc55 5D pop rbp ; XREF=0x10000fc24, 0x10000fc20 000000010000fc56 C3 ret
Although apparently not really necessary, to be sure, we can remove the same logic from the
showErrorMessage by using two jumps:

These two jumps ensure that when
showErrorMessage is called, the logic never drops into displaying the demo stuff and the nag that prompts users with the time allowed for the demo.
The patch for
2.4.5 has to be applied to the binary

for more information on how to apply this patch, please see the applying binary patches section.
To apply this patch to the latest version
2.4.5, first you should make sure that iGlasses is not resident by using the Activity Monitor program bundled with
OSX. Apparently, iGlasses remains resident after the first run - which, is not very thoughtful of them.
Once you launch the Activity Monitor search for iGlasses and click the
X button until the
PID changes - iGlasses also apparently relaunches itself so, to be sure that the crack worked you will have to perform this step after applying the patch.
