Default MEP2 algorithm

Hello, I wasn't sure in what sub-forum to post this thread so feel free to move it.

Recently I had to unlock my BB, a process that is automatized nowadays, and it took less than 10 minutes, for only $7.

I tried to look on how the unlocking really works but didn't find anything.
My guess is that it's an algorithm, such as HMAC, that you 'plug' in the IMEI and MEP and it outputs the MEP2. But if this is the case, then someone would probably made this 'calculator' free and public already, and this has not happened.

So, anyone has any ideas how does the MEP2 really works?
