I wish I didn’t have to start the New Year with bad news, but some iOS users will be left really disappointed after this. The iOS repository for jailbreak apps has shut down.
It was the place where most of the non Apple-approved iOS apps (but also lots of pirated apps) come from. The official reason for the shutdown, according the Hackulous team, is the stagnating forum, but to be honest that sounds hard to believe.
Here is the official statement:
Goodnight, sweet prince.
We are very sad to announce that Hackulous is shutting down. After many years, our community has become stagnant and our forums are a bit of a ghost town. It has become difficult to keep them online and well-moderated, despite the devotion of our staff. We’re incredibly thankful for the support we’ve had over the years and hope that new, greater communities blossom out of our absence.
I don’t support the piracy in anyway, but if you do and have been using Installous to get what you need, I guess you must find another place.
Thanks to everyone who sent this in!
