Has anyone tried it on stock x10 gingerbread firmware?

Its basically a new exploit (zergRush) by the Revolutionary Team...

Can anyone test it? (My x10 is still in service center :P )

Yeah right, the only changes done in the different Firmwares are some other features/apps and this things but Network is same in all.
