Battlefield 3 Hacked to Work Without Origin?

Hackers have worked out a way to play Battlefield 3 without using the Origin service that EA requires of players of the military shooter sequel, reports Gamasutra. They have apparently acquired the cracked version of the game, saying it includes the following statement: "This release is dedicated to our fans worldwide who bought this game on [sic] legal way and don't want to install the trojan from Electronic Arts to play online." They also say EA has not yet commented on this situation. Thanks Destructoid.

Do you notice that it opens up Battlefield on your taskbar? Try clicking that on your taskbar.

Heh yes, I noticed; I'm not that unobservant.

Clicking the taskbar icon pops up the window as if it's going to switch over, but it just stays an outlined window and never goes "into" the program no matter how long I wait. I've tried all the usual suggestions... Reinstalled game, Origin, drivers, MS framework, etc. and tried changing how I start it up (through Battlelog, through Origin, through shortcut) to no avail.

The really frustrating thing is that it worked the first day, then has done the same hanging since then, despite absolutely nothing having changed on my system since the first time.
