Partially this is my fault, since I'm the original poster and originally used the phrase "unlock available via Chinese middleman". I still think it was right to include the fact that this was Chinese, since I wanted people to know that their $40 would be going overseas to a questionable operation.
I think we should close down this thread until someone posts info about it starting up again. If anyone does get in contact with the "Bootloader Unlocker Dude of Indeterminate Foreign Location", please post it there AND send me a personal message so I can update the thread.
Keep it classy,
