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 )

Sometimes other fw dont match on other countries so i guess this is very usefull to others.

And im talking about radio signal (network).

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