  • Ripdev - GOOD BYE


    Ripdev has been a presence in the iPhone community for a good while now. They took over Installer from Null River, and worked WITH Null River for a while before doing so.

    They're behind Icy, Kate, and a few more notable iPhone softwares.

    And now, they're shutting down.

    Citing only "circumstances" as their reasoning, Ripdev states they'll be closing their doors, ceasing all support, and are giving out the source to Icy to see if anyone would like to do anything with it.

    We've always been Cydia proponents - I don't even have Icy installed on my iPhones, and never have except a brief review period when it initially came out. With Icy gone, guess we're in the same exact place - Cydia is King, and the people have spoken.

    It's been a great two years, but unfortunately, the time has come for Ripdev to close its doors. There are many reasons for this, most of which we probably will never disclose (unless we are forced to). The important thing is that due to circumstances we will likely be unable to support the titles we have created over the years further. They will be perfectly operatable on the firmware versions they were created for, and you will be able to download and use them — but they will no longer be supported and updated (except for i2Reader Pro that is not being developed by us and that will be kept in sync with its App Store version). We will, of course, transfer the licenses to the new devices — just email us. Our Cydia repository will be operational until at least next year, so be assured that the products you liked and paid for will be available for you to (re)install.
    Icy, our lightweight DPKG installer, is now available in source form under MIT license. You're free to do whatever you want with it. It would be nice if someone picks up the project…
    It was a honor to be in the iPhone jailbreak community, and we are proud that we have certainly made a ripple or two. Farewell!
