Over this past weekend, Rivera said (via Twitter) that the team had distributed 10,000 tokens, which was the initial limit agreed upon by Microsoft and the group.
As noted in the January 1 tweet above, the team is discussing among themselves whether to approach Microsoft for more tokens at this point. The ChevronWP7 team has not yet approached Microsoft about obtaining more tokens at this point, Rivera told me today. So there's been no kiboshing or threat of kiboshing -- quiet or otherwise.
The WP unlocking tool, which comes in 32-bit and 64-bit flavors, costs $9 per Windows Phone unlock. Homebrew app developers who want to publish their apps to the Windows Phone Marketplace still need to register for a Microsoft App Hub account. (If you don't want to publish your app to the marketplace, you don't need to pay the $99 for a developer account.)
