iPhone Hacked Again

A New Jersey 17 year old, George Hotz, says he spent 500 hours trying to figuring out how to unlock his iPhone on T-Mobile - it looks like he's done it. George, a pretty sharp kid planning to attend Rochester Institute of Technology this fall, posted a 10-step hack on his blog Thursday and also posted a video on YouTube:

Shortly after the iPhone came out it was hacked the first time - providing a way to use iTunes, surf the web, etc using a WiFi network and without AT&T activation. Today, claims there are actually four different documented methods to unlock an iPhone.

Before you go trying to hack your iPhone like George you may want to read Engadget's Know Your Rights: Is it illegal to unlock my iPhone?

These are interesting times.
