The folks behind the iPhone 3G unlock – which will be hitting the Internets tomorrow night at midnight – gave a presentation on their project at CCC in Berlin last week. Rather than sound like a bunch mewling nerds, they have excellent speaking voices and seem very intelligent and sassy.
The most interesting thing about these guys are that they have a dedication to mission sense of humor about their project that you rarely see in the corporate world. These guys essentially created an entire gray market for the iPhone a few months after launch and by popping the cap on the 3G tomorrow they’ll do the same for Apple’s next product.
It would be great to write a white paper on these boys. It’s an amazing example of connected development and reverse engineering that is completely decentralized and endlessly powerful.
