  • Pirate Ship Destroyed: Install0us Shuts Down Project


    NOTE: This article is for informational purpose. ModMyi does not condone nor support the use of pirated material.

    **********, an iPhone App which allows users to install pirated software to their phone, has bowed out of the scene after speaking to a legal representative about how well ********** could stand up in court for legal issues.

    Starting from just a small blog, which grew to an overwhelmingly busy and popular forum, the ********** app had provided a user friendly way to browse the web and download or install apps, while attempting to be clean from any association with wherever the apps come from, simply trying to be a middle man installer for IPAs.

    After the developer of ********** had spoken to a lawyer, he was told that even with these attempts to steer clear of legalities, he would never have a solid case and would be putting himself into a lot of trouble. Which is of no surprise really, Pirates never win... unless your Johnny Depp.

    There is a rather lengthy blog post, which you'll have to find yourself, that I'll try to summarize for a quick read:

    Why is this happening? Legalities.. ********** allowed you to browse / download / install, without providing any links to cracked materials... our discussion left me sad and even feeling stupid to have invested so much effort into this, and involved people with me... You see, after talking for more than an hour with him, I'm sorry but the conclusion is that what we do would be very hard to defend against in court...

    What Will Happen? These forums will close, and repositories too. Just a few more weeks, and everything will be shut down and deleted.... ********** 3 will not and cannot ever be released. It all must end here... ..To make things clear, we have never shared our source code, and we can never do so, simply for legality's sake...
    While we all know another developer will probably just take their place, it just goes to show it's a never ending battle, and just like all other before it, they will sink every pirate ship they can.

    Google: **********

      ********** is not **********. Notice the "0". ********** is not down nor is ********. Just wanted to clarify that for integrity's sake.

      ********** could've been a good thing. It allowed some to actually try an app before spending $10-20 on an app and be stuck with it. I actually used it to try out wunder radio and beejive which i paid for once I realized how great of an app they were.

      "Which is of no surprise really, Pirates never win... unless your Johnny Depp." Oh really? What planet do you live on. People by the millions freely pirate/share everything from software, music, movies, and applications everyday. My momma taught me to share and that's exactly what I will do.

      This is true. But why are they posting news about cracked apps here in the first place? You know it's going to bring discussion up. And you know it's going to inform people who didn't previously know "Hey, I can get that paid app for free?" So don't blame it on the users who discuss it, but on the person who wrote about it. If you don't want people to talk about it then just don't post it on the front page. Doesn't make sense to me that the topic is something taboo in here when staff writers get the right to talk about it. Why censor out the words if it's going to be in huge bold letters in our front page?

      This thread will be deleted by the days end...watch. By the way, the staff writer's useless article is more of a smear piece than an actual dissemination of useful reporting and facts. And yes install-ous did just release a new and improved app.
