can you elaborate a bit more about the topic of guessing the right frame?

i'm trying to find all  possible combinations of SI6 frames (Power level = 5, power level = 8, TA=0, TA= 1)
at offsets of 102,204,306 frames.
the question is: from where is this offset taken? from the last SI5 (or si5ter) frame ? of from the start encryption command?

am i on the right track? or am i just doing stupid things?

i want to demonstrate to audience what you guys did at 27c3... but i am far from it... :(

Kraken requires 64 continuos bits of error-free key stream. Uplink frames are typically received at a lower quality than downlink frames, consequently having a lower chances of yielding 'crackable' segments.
