Thread: BigBoss Hosting Tweak From Piracy Repo

  1. #1
    Default BigBoss Hosting Tweak From Piracy Repo
    I've noticed that a new tweak, "Kik Messenger Essentials" (from the BigBoss repo)'s tweak ID is "com.sull.kikmessengeressentials". If you didn't know, sull is someone who owns a piracy repo (which will remain unnamed because I do not condone piracy). This makes me a little concerned that BigBoss is allowing piracy tweaks to creep into the repository.-imageuploadedbymodmyi1416717853.664897.jpg

    I installed the tweak and every time I open kik it asks if I want to go to another website to get additional tweaks by the person. I was curious so I went to the site, but before they let you on the site it makes you fill out a survey. I'm deleting the tweak.

    ......beware......

    It's a basic "re-packaging sale.

    I Don't want to say "who". But
    I see a tweak for free , then 2 days later it's for sale on a different "repo"
    Just added a nice price tag to it.

    What's funny is that several of the tweaks (i.e. iCleaner) we have now originally came from 'other' repos. If people weren't so close-minded, you'd recognize there's some value to these repos. The major repos prevent certain tweaks from being accepted so they end up on these pirate repos.

    ...and you thought you had total control to do what you want when you're jail broken, LOL!

    My two cents...

    Gotta say something does feel off with this particular one though. I use several beta/private repos and I've never before felt something was nearly as weird as this one does.

    You could be right. I don't use Kik so I can't speak on it.
