iBlacklist you little DIRTBAGS!
Can you imagine a pricy, paid for piece of call/sms blocking software that actually GIVES YOUR NUMBER (and those in you contact list) TO THIRD PARTIES?! WELL THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT'S HAPPENING!! Fortunately I have access to tools to detect this sort of nonsense so I'm on to you DIRTBAGS and I'm going to re up this message on every blog that I have access to until this crappy underhanded behavior stops!
And if it doesn't, I might include links to free versions and instructions on how to block this underhanded behavior. Net result? the masses get your software for free and you don't get to pull this CRAP! The choice is yours so keep it clean and honest (just like in the sales pitch). Oh yea, one more thing, **** ***!

Um yeah hi, you seem upset. Can I recommend you express your emotions to the developer? I'm sure the email address is somewhere on iBlacklist's page in Cydia...
Truth be told I don't think the developer is going to come here on modmyi and read this, considering iBlacklist is from BigBoss, lol.

Which one? the same application is now distributed by Digital Entertainment, Inc. on App Store at $1.99

iBlacklist - Block UNW... from Digital Entertainment, Inc. on App Store is a scam.

Yeah, what iBlacklist are you talking about?? The cydia app or one of the BS app store apps?

ModMyi.com | iBlacklist
Believe it or not devs do come here since unlike Rock (and Apple) CYDIA HAS NO COMMENT SYSTEM!
Which helps to provide feedback (i.e. don't down load the latest version of X because it causes issue X)...

Yeah I have yet to see a dev actually come here and answer people's concerns or questions. Typically people contact them via the email addresses they may provide for public inquiries.
Just note the iBlacklist isn't an app hosted by us on ModMyi do I don't think you'll get much feedback here regarding the development and functional aspects of this app.
I honestly never had a problem with iBlacklist though...so if we are leaving feedback here about it I'd say it's just fine. Blocks all those annoying calls from annoying telemarketers and scammers from calling me a million times a day. I'm happy with it.

So Jay Freeman now that you have gotten around to updating winterboard why not work on the Rock/Cydia promises? After all Cydia LLC is a business, Right?
PS for the N00bs, you think you are going "fast" in a Mustang (Cydia) because you have never driven a RUF Porsche (Rock). Just sayin...
04-19-2012, 02:11 PM #13
Well there's a reason why Rock no longer exists. Speed comes with a cost. The way Rock ran may have been faster but that doesn't make it superior, in regards to the proper function of your device.
04-19-2012, 02:52 PM #14
PS Like a NOS Mustang vs a Turbo RUF Porsche (there I go again)...
04-19-2012, 03:04 PM #15
Yes, you make a valid point. Cydia has indeed come far in comparison to what it was 4-5 years ago. I'm sure improvements will come, it may take a long while but better late than never.
04-20-2012, 12:07 AM #16
wow, considering that one can get cydia and most apps for free, what's to complain about? if someone doesn't care for cydia, that person can start her own jailbreak business. i suggest that such energy be redirected toward solving world hunger, middle east peace, etc.
04-20-2012, 03:42 AM #17
I realize that Rock wasn't a safe as Cydia, but I sure do miss Rock. As an end user, I sure liked using it more.

Hey here's a good idea, KM and Jay F. should get together and have mMYi host and manage a Cydia commenting/rating platform in exchange for ad space. mMYi certainly has the experience and expertise and Cydia really needs it. Sooo?

Mm I can't really agree with that. It's nearly impossible to brick an iPhone and if a tweak or app from Cydia causes an issue, it's likely due to incompatibility or conflict. Everybody uses different combinations of tweaks and apps, even with a "system" it won't prevent bad things from happening.
I'm not so much concerned about any of the TBH, I mean Cydia is what it is. It's the one and only. If the creator has time to fix it he'll do it, if he doesn't then do be it.

Listen, we are not looking for the reinvention of the wheel here. Everyone knows that part of the value of iTunes and its comment system is its ability to provide INSTANT feedback to a Dev that may have released a buggy update and also as a warning to others not to download until a fix/update!
And most App store apps are benign, right? (App force close, etc.). That's it. Many JB apps on the other hand have what amounts to root access and can do allot more damage! So how is that acceptable? In this environment of "super access apps" it is even more, not less critical to have an upfront commenting system like iTunes (and Rock).
Add to that the promise to make it so when Rock was purchased by Jay Cydia makes it even that much worse that it hasn't happened yet. Again, every day, week, month that goes by is another 100, 1,000, 10,000 gimped iPhone because Cydia doesn't have this upfront instant feedback mechanism in place.
Cydia (a business not a high school project last time I checked) needs a commenting system like yesterday and as promised (Jay's words not ours). Sayin...
