The OnePlus 2 has handled to receive a million registrations in just 72 hours and of course the company has although earned a solid brand name and a trusted fanfare in just two years of its existence, though. However, the OnePlus 2 purchase can only be made through Invite System, and for that you have to register yours by heading to the inviting system page. But, one particular hardcore fan determined to get himself a OnePlus 2, used his software skills to hijack the invite system and get himself on top of the reservation list. He even shared this hacking trick with other explaining them – how to hack OnePlus 2 invite system.
Technically, this method to getting into the reservation list is a bit chocking, but nevertheless, he posted the whole process on Medium for better assistance.
