A frustrated fan figured out how to hack his way into a new spot in the OnePlus 2 invite queue

Tired of the way OnePlus allows others to jump ahead in the OnePlus 2 invitation line by signing up others in some sort of quasi-pyramid scheme, frustrated fan Jake Cooper has taken matters into his own hands.

You wanna dance OnePlus? Let's dance.

After seeing his spot on "the list" move from 9,000 to 70,000 due to the way the reservation system rewards referrals, Cooper did a little digging and a little Python scripting, and armed with some knowledge of how the Internet works, moved his way up the queue to position 1,694. And since OnePlus hasn't responded to his inquires via Twitter, he decided to "go public."

We don't condone manipulating web services, but we also don't condone silly invite systems that punish people who aren't willing to spam their way to the top. Be sure to give this one a read in case it gets taken down at the request of OnePlus, as Mr. Cooper says he will do so if asked.
