100% of what? That is the question here. You can see 100% of the
software running of the application processor, 100% of everything
running on some coprocessors. 100% of pcb schematics available, 100% of
documentation available. 100% of inner layouts of microchips +
microcode. Freedom to use 100% of available phone radio natworks
(including the areas where no 2G but 3G is available.
