i found a back-door by going to Set time > actual android interface > drag the drawer> you should see settings and all about this device.

We have launched the version 2 of HB01.

As promised, this version has no antenna-physcically no wireless connections, no drivers for wireless commnucations,enables manual input of private key, enables importing of backup wallet files. And we will provide an open source safety-checking app to ensure we have no back door.

this sounds good news for us all .. china country that normally reject online payments it receives for bitcoin. they certainly have a strong reason for it. I can not wait to see Hardbit hardware this wallet, because it's the first time. of course there are some drawbacks and improvements needed. however, we can say bitcoin will continue to grow until he would be a future payment

I would not trust any device that was not open source. How do we know this cannot be hacked? How do we know that this isn't sending our private keys to the firm?

Is it not an offline device? I thought that was kind of the point of a hardware wallet

a true hardware wallet will only display a signed tx as its output. meaning no other communications go out. and due to it being a visual output (QR code) you can verify by having your computer read the QR code.. and then your computer transmits the signed TX.

just one warning. do not use any privkeys supplied or generated by hardbit. as they may have the solution to the generation code.
instead import your own fresh paper wallet from an offline source (if our that paranoid)

you should be able to back up your wallet. then use the privkey elsewhere

I will be returning this device because I need a device that fulfills the following requirements:

1) I have control of the private keys not a third party
2) If something were to happen to my private keys outside of the hardbit device then I can export the keys within the device to my computer in a format that can be loaded into any other bitcoin wallet.
3) USB is used to transmit data to the device to allow for the device to receive private keys generated outside of the device. If those keys are lost usb is used to send private keys within the device to an application running on my computer such as blockchain.info. USB is used to receive payment requests and it is used to send sign transactions to a wallet software such as blockchain.info.

If the above is your expectation also then DO NOT PURCHASE THIS PRODUCT.

Hardware wallet can provide offline-signing which is the only way to avoid exposing private key to internet. So i think it is more secure than any of other wallets..But off course there's still remain chances for hack if you do not use proper security.

Good idea, but i think, cards would be better for physical wallet using.
