I maintain TheBigBoss repo. This Rees character is from the group of TAIH that seem to always 'reconfigure' someone elses hard work as their own.
I have his submission in front of me. I'm more than qualified to give you the real lowdown.
Obviously, we are wise enough to see through it. Rees/TAIH never receives our declines because they don't answer emails; he probably is assuming it will be on Cydia soon but that won't be happening if I can help it.

By all means, for anyone reading this; if you like this idea of a combo-tweak suite, go and check out Springtomize on Cydia.

Is someone accusing him of giving out tweaks for free that someone made? Don't we see tweaks or apps that have the same use? This is free and he isn't selling for money

I already paid for springtomized but not everyone can pay so if someone is making tweaks for free don't discourage him and stop calling him names what's his motivation here? Does free means hidden payment.and I like to say this it's about time developers start accepting liberty reserve as payment not everyone has a credit card that's why there are so many crack repos out there why won't someone use a crack version of an app if he or she has no cc to buy it? You should know by now that most people that jb their idevices are outside of the US

You are bringing other subjects into this conversation. It's not necessary to mix-up the topic here.
This Rees person has done none of the real work. He is a thief no matter if this is made available as a free package. Again, he did not 'make a tweak', he has only renamed some labels and put his name into the preference panes. I don't understand his motivations but I don't need to. Release of this package would be directly damagin the rightful author, Mr Biga.
It would not suprise me if Rees obtained Springtomize for free from a pirate repo and doesn't notice or care eitherway that it's a pay package. He and others from the TAIH group have a track record of doing this. They have done similar with: Badges (twice), NoWiggle, Springtomize (twice), and some other things. Some of these are pay, some are not. That is just what I can recall of the top of my head.

I may be opening myself up for ridicule... but what exactly is "Tapper" and "Tapper Size"?
This tweak package looks very promising though!
EDIT: Didn't know about Springtomize... if these accusations are true, this Nathan guy is a segment of the JB community that give all of us a bad name.

But as to whether he is a thief or not you know better than I do so I will leave it there the writer of this article need to check this out and let us know

If his tweaks were different than the ones in Springtomize, then I don't see the big deal. BUT, if they are the same tweaks just renamed and distributed freely, then him and his programs should be banned from every repo, until he removes the tweaks in question.
However, there's a flipside to this: if no one else can make or use a tweak that someone else has made, then how does Springtomize even exist in its current state? It uses tweaks that can be found elsewhere, doesn't it? Aren't we simply paying for the convenience of having them all compiled into one place?

This 'Enabled' product is the real flipside. Rees just uses the well-made Springtomize.dylb, but redesigns the preference panels, reorganizes them and puts his name onto them. The preference panles are trivially modified with text editor, with the implementations of the tweaks still originatingin the code from the Springtomize library. What Rees aimed to do with his package was so brazenly foolish he does not even consider renaming the dylib he's stealing. Every file in his package has all the earmarks that it came from Springtomize.

Stealing is stealing. If I put my name on something someone else made and try to sell it as mine, I am infringing on his work and copyright. That is clearly theft. There is no sense in arguing the point. A counterfeit is stealing. Even if no money is involved, he is is stealing rightful sales from the originator of the idea (in this case an app).
Any other discussion is just white noise. It's not about ANYTHING other than theft. If you steal (hack) an app, you are stealing. Your mom told you it is wrong to steal. Don't you listen to your mom?Senior
