Thread: the real reason why rip dev wont let us use winterboard

  1. #21
    agreed...i used poof to hide the installer app cause its crap...although pre 2.0 that was the way to go, jay has dominated post 2.0 and i only use cydia and somone who is good with software see it has a much more stable platform and program, he's up to it with updates and moving with the trends, and not charging people for it! or blocking people for that matter, i am now in the process of re-pwn'n to change my boot logo!!! and DELETE installer all together!.....start the march ya'll we don't need that crap from them

    Installer isn't "that" bad. One thing it does that is very nice is queuing up installs. I wish Cydia did that.

    However I also like Cydia better... but wish it didn't have issues with locking up 2.x...! I'm sure Saurik will get it figured out.

    That said, RIPDev guys are out of their ******* minds.

    I don't mind paying for apps, I am more than happy to support developers for quality work. But these guys won't get a penny from me, ever, because 1) they've shown their true colors AND 2) there will always be developers like Saurik who build for the fun and are infinitely more deserving of the financial support.

    I am so glad people are seeing the light. Growing more faint are those memories of just weeks ago when the initial jailbreak for 2.0 was out, and WHAT!!!, no installer, only cydia? The hate posts for cydia had begun, and the love fest for the long lost installer was afoot. Cough! Cough! Looks like the tides have turned my friend and installer is not that great app that it once was, cydia has grown up to become not only more functional, more stable, but also is being developed by someone with much much more integrity. Good on you saurik and shame on you RipDev. And yes, I too was screwed by ripdev, so add my name to the list!!

    The hate posts were with good reason. "corrupted" phones is are not a good thing and so far it all pointed to Cydia. At least it looks like that problem is solved now in the latest release (crosses fingers).

    As for Saurik I think he's done a fantastic job with Cydia and all the rest of his apps, including his support of app distribution itself. We should all take the time to shoot him a quick donation for his time and trouble to show our appreciation and to help blunt the edge off some of the more difficult times (ie bugs).

    I didnt even bother adding Installer to my custom 2.0.2 firmware.

    RIP Installer.

    Sometimes you buy into the hype but I find it amusing that Cydia has NES, gpSPhone, and two others while Installer shows 2 games which both are sold by ripDev. Sad to see something like installer go to people with business interest in the app which is killing the community it carried.

    +1 to Cydia.

    Winterboard = FREE / Kate $45
    PYSL = FREE privacy program
    Intelliscreen pwns uCalendar
    Smartdialer = who uses this??!!
    Winterboard pwns Facelift

    The ONLY feature we don't have a free option for yet is changing system fonts and this is NOT worth $45!

  11. #29
    we can change the fonts manually....
    .... and i can use 45$ to replace the broken headset with mic.
    after recieving so many free apps from Cydia, one should do 'small-homeworks' time after time....
    it keeps us in good shape!

    Honestly, I was excited to see Installer 4. Even with all of the problems through beta, I still wanted to give it a shot, but seeing how not only does he charge out the arse for this stuff, he also is ripping a few people off by not returning emails. Enough RipDev, Cydia, Cycorder, Winterboard etc. FTW. I think I am about to jailbreak my phone!!

  13. #31
    Rip-Dev is horrible. I decided to uninstall Kate *which I have aready paid my $45 for) and it rearranged AND reset my entire phone icons AND my lockscreen time! I have since removed Installer, use only Winterboard for my themes and I still have my great 5 dock icons!

  14. #32
    Hey guys, I actually use the Kate software and I like it, Also there are a few apps that are on the installer app that arent on the cydia. Maybe I use my phone a little diffrently than u guys but, for looks I like looking at the wallpapers instead of the themes. I used Customize to get the see through icons and everything else as far as looks has been good for me. I find it useful that Kate has put all of the other (pysl and winterboard) apps that we'd normally use into one app. I dont think that either are really bad as you guys are making it out to be, But those are just my thoughts.

    but wait.... I like Kate. :-).

    she can get it!!!! :-P

    I never bought Kate but I installed in once on 1.1.4... After I installed it my phone basically locked up... I email them with a list of programs I had installed (the list was pretty long)... We had a convo back if forth and they basically said that Kate wasn't compatible with only all of my apps... That was the end of that and had to restore my whole phone... When WinPWN comes out I will not be adding Installer... The one thing that I do like about installer that someone mentioned is that you a queue programs... For someone who has to restore, installing 20+ apps is kind of a pain 1 at a time, but o well Cydia ROCKS!

    Except to quote Saurik (and this is laughable) "Winterboard is about themeing, not functionality". If Winterboard actually provided the same options as Summerboard did, we might get somewhere, but I don't think he has any plans on it.

    Do we have wallpaper dimming? Removal of last icon row on first page?

    man - rewind to 2.0 release, then jailbreak, even at 2.0.2, people from 1.x still screaming for their precious Installer back. Now people proclaiming their love for Cydia and saurik.

    this thread actually made me lol

    Kate is not horrible at all. In fact, if you apply the same theme with Kate and Winterboard, you will notice a very big difference in system speed. Kate doesn't slow down the phone or the applications, where Winterboard does and a lot too.
