iDB noted that the Hackulous team announced that they are shutting down, taking down the Installous jailbreak tool used to install pirated apps on iOS devices. “We are very sad to announce that Hackulous is shutting down. After many years, our community has become stagnant and our forums are a bit of a ghost town. It has become difficult to keep them online and well-moderated, despite the devotion of our staff. We’re incredibly thankful for the support we’ve had over the years and hope that new, greater communities blossom out of our absence.” Most likely other piracy tools will replace installous, but not many have been so successful as installous. » Hackulous Shuts Down Piracy App Installous [jailbreak]
