I don't know about TS (yet I doubt them being an option), but will always work.

No, you can't hack it via TS. You actually need physical access to run a locksmith program on it.

Well, sort of. You said you weren't sure. I stated it as a fact. However, I don't need the points so if Albert1809 wants to re-assign the points to you then I am all for it.
