Installous Not Working Because Hackulous Repo Closed

hackulous not working

It is sorry to say but famous Hackulous repo is not working because it is closed. There is no information about the reason of this decision but the fact is that Hackulous is shutting down.

Hackulous community which carried out hacked apps for the iOS using Installous, officially announced the completion of its work. Along with this development such apps as AppSync and Installous not working anymore. Hackers also left a message on his website.

Installous is a store of jailbroken applications that owners of jailbroken iPhone, iPod touch and iPad used to install apps for free from Apptrackr and other resources on the Internet. The program is distributed through Cydia in a special repo http://cydia.hackulo.us. But as Hackulous not working this repo is not active.

hackulous not working

However hackers have not told about the reason of closing Hackulous source, apparently the number of users of hacked applications was significantly decreased due to the prolonged absence of iOS 6 jailbreak. Many of those who moved to the new firmware does not currently have the ability to hack their devices and, accordingly, to use pirated applications.

Hackers from the iPhone Dev Team and Chronic Dev Team has not yet released the exploit to jailbreak new devices, like the iPhone 5 and iPad mini.

Anyway, from now Hackulous repo is not working. This means that in the future users will not be able to download Installous and AppSync and use of unlicensed software.

This is great news for iOS developers and bad for those who did jailbreak for installing cracked apps from the App Store. However, hackers are hoping that in the future there will be developers who will continue their work.

Well, I hope so too. Leave your comments about this decision of hackers behind Hackulous repo. Do you agree that the reason was in iOS 6 jailbreak delay or Apple made an effort to close Hackulous repo that caused not working Installous and AppSync.

    Apple win, hackers lose.. The true

    Any other alternative to download cracked apps?

  3. Pavlovsky December 31, 2012 at 09:50

    AppCake+ remains :(

      Install "vShare" from Cydia it is better. If the App Store would give a credit for the app you pay for and delete the same day if you dont like it, then vShare, installous, Appcake, iTools, etc would be less attractive. For now it still is very attractive. Regardless most $.99 apps don't wort it.

  11. Khalid Muhaisen January 1, 2013 at 17:43

    there is no security code to enter
    there is no server to choose from
    u can start stop paus and resume a download

    vShare is good, but connection is so slow!!! Hope what get;s better. Also a lot of outs are a few revision behind the current. Hope this improves as vShare should be getting a whole lotta new users that can no longer use installous!

  15. Hammoudi January 4, 2013 at 08:41

  16. Mookie January 4, 2013 at 09:45

    How you get the vshare…???

    • 66Ebullient.Prism66 February 13, 2013 at 12:26

      Just download it straight off cydia. It's free. And I'm hoping you know what I'm talking about…

  17. Hammoudi January 4, 2013 at 10:19

    so i should use a credit card to get these awesome games? :(

  18. Mike January 12, 2013 at 05:19

    Its a very sad news, that would surely effect Apple's business as most people would not be able to download softwares for free as not everyone can afford to purchase softwares so there may be a lot of people switching their phones. That's what I think…

    • Liberal Capitalist February 11, 2013 at 12:16

      i want to support GOOD developers so there are more GOOD apps.
      a lot of apps are crap,even some expensive ones (cost over $0.99). too many times i have bought apps that sounded good,but they just dont do what i need.also,many are full of bugs. Office2 is a supreme example of an overrated,low performance,bug filled,overpriced app that i wish i had never bought.i could have supported several GOOD apps with the same money that was wasted on a piece of crap.

      i think 1-day trial/return policy (suggested above) is a great idea.

  19. Hassan January 12, 2013 at 05:52

    Thanks for the info about Vshare folks……….. its just rocking. Speed is really good. And no more timer and security words. Its good.

    • Bob February 4, 2013 at 23:27

      Cydia is just over loaded right now with all of the people on there trying to download stuff because of the new jailbreak just coming out. once it dies down Cydia will work properly again, but some sorces like hackyouriphone are working for me right now. i guess it depends on which sorce your trying to use. my advice just try later.

    • Ebu February 13, 2013 at 12:28

      Try some basic iPad troubleshooting, like resetting the network settings, rebooting, etc.

  26. hintzsche February 4, 2013 at 17:19

    good news the appcake is fixed and vshare (apt.appvv.com/en) the appcake now is faster loading in some locations And working more for other reforms will be repaired when the show upgrade in your cydia.
