    Default RIP : Ripdev
    What's happend to ripdev ? With the first iphone they came out with installer which was a very stable and excellent product. They also released Kate (or caterpiller as it was then). At the time that was also an excellent product, i even paid for an unlimited license.

    Now with the 2.x firmware they have released the new installer which lets face it, is a complete piece of crap. I even removed it from my iphone last week. Cydia urinates on installer from a great height. Don't get me started on Kate, it's basically a utility which you install and then 30 minutes later find yourself having to do restore your phone because it screws everything up - it's the buggiest junk every released. They don't bother answering support questions anymore and their website is updated about once a month.

    What happened to the good products they once came out with ?

    well... installer was created by another company, not rip dev. apptap or null river or soemthing?

    so all ripdev ever made was catepillar which was cool on OS 1.0 when I had reflecting icons, but sucked after it forced me to do a system restore 1 week into having it.

    Perhaps they should just give up.

    Ripdev took over (bought?) Installer from Nullriver and modified/enhanced it. Kate worked well for me pre v2.0, but now Installer / Kate are the only two apps that will cause an endless apple logo reboot for me. I don't know why they can't respring Springboard WITHOUT deleting the icon cache. Cydia can, everybody else can, but they don't...
    I've paid for the full Kate, and it's a pity that they are not addressing these problems, but to avoid pulling my hair out, I had to un-install it. I never use Installer now either.
