iBridge family and embedded machines

Postby m6m » Thu May 16, 2019 12:52 am

Hello all,

I recently downloaded the latest BridgeOS firmware (product ID 041-59915) and inflated the kernelcache as described in http://newosxbook.com/articles/BridgeOS.html
I found that there are six T2 chip variants, J137AP, J680AP, J132AP, J174AP, J780AP, and J140KP.
From iphonewiki (https://www.theiphonewiki.com/wiki/IBridge), I also found they have alternate names, iBridge2,*.

I went Apple store and hit /usr/libexec/remotectl list for all Mac models with T2 chips, and got the following relationships:

Code: Select all
| J137AP   | iBridge2,1   | iMacPro1,1     |
| J680AP   | iBridge2,3   | MacBookPro15,1 |
| J132AP   | iBridge2,4   | MacBookPro15,2 |
| J174AP   | iBridge2,5   | MacMini8,1     |
| J780AP   | iBridge2,7   | ?              |
| J140KP   | iBridge2,8   | MacBookAir8,1  |

According to Apple's website, there are only five machines coming with T2 chips.
Does anyone know which machine has J780AP / iBridge2,7 chip?

Best regards,

Looks like it might be another 2018 Macbook Pro with a different iBridge version? Just basing that based on the crash in this Apple thread

Thanks for the info.
It seems hcintegrity has bought MacBookPro15,1 in the beginning of April 2019, according to his question post.
So, Apple has changed a T2 chip embedded in MacBookPro15,1 from JA680P to JA780P silently? If so, that's weird, but interesting... :shock:
