Hacking for fun and profit – or, how to make the world a better place by “picking the lock” of the iPhone
I first read about our gifted friend whose selfless act will forever free us from the shackles of tyranny on John Paczkowski’s lovely blog Digital Daily. So basically this cool kid, George Hotz, powered by dozens
of Mountain Dews and Red Bulls, and equipped with determination and a soldering iron, found a way to unlock a new iPhone from the AT&T phone service. Hotz described in detail on his blog how he opened the system to be able to use t-Mobile or international carriers. God bless him.
