Hackulous shuts down: No Hacks & IPA Any More?

As you might have already noticed that the popular jailbreak community forum – Hackulous has been shut down and bringing down its most popular apps in the process: Installous and AppSync.

Here is what they left on their website:

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.

With lots of love,
Hackulous Team

For many of you, this is a nightmare. I know many of jailbreakers install cracked IPA directly from Installous, it’s fast and easy although I have never used it before (Some download speed sucks).  It wasn’t a problem at all even we don’t have installous, but if without AppSync, all things turned into nothing (For those installing cracked ipa people). AppSync is a Cydia app you must have in order to install cracked ipa on your jailbroken idevices. Nevertheless, we can still installing cracked ipa on our iOS 4 –  iOS 5.1.1, iOS 6, however, not iOS 6.0.2 or the future updating iOS 7.  And the best cracking tool ” Clutch” will be bringing down as well, so there will be less people cracking  apps. At the same time, Apptrackr, the biggest iap download site has been disappeared, then you start thinking that you can download cracked ipas from the other places, included us. But the fact is, all this kind of websites will be down one by one, sooner or later.  Why? I will explain you the reasons below.

  1. No AppSync = Can’t install ipa (Unless someone developed a new one)
  2. No Clutch/ other cracking tools = No cracked ipa  (Not a big deal, some other tools work too)
  3. No Untethered jailbreak for iOS 6 yet and iPhone 5..

How this affected Game hacks?

No cracked ipa = No jailbreak hacks

Keep all these in mind when you considering update to iOS 6.

Good luck!!!

Note: We are human, we can solve everything, even alien attack earth! lol ..Mayans were wrong on ” End of the world “, isn’t it??

I will keep doing what I am doing now until ” all things turned into nothing”.
