Hackulous: iOS Pirated App Reportedly Shutting Down its Services

By Gizbot Bureau

    One of the major iOS jailbreaking websites, Hackulous will be shutting down shortly. Hackulous is among the most popular iOS pirated app communities. The community has already announced it has stopped its jailbreaking services. This is a great loss to iOS users who like to jailbreak their devices for achieving incredible performance.

    The major loss in the absence of this community is that the most popular jailbreak apps Installous and App Sync will no longer be available to the iOS users. Most of the useful Cydia tweaks were downloaded with these apps.

    The jailbreaking will not be effective without the tweaks. To put it in a nutshell the non-availability of these apps will cause an unrecoverable rift in jailbreaking practice.

    Hackulous cites as the reason behind this ultimate step, the stagnation of the reader community for a very long time. At the same time, their forums were also not performing well.

    The visitors to these forums are gradually decreasing. Even though the staff is dedicated, they state that they are finding it quite difficult to keep the site online. Moderating the site has become a challenge as well.

    It seems that piracy has driven Hackulous to such a decision. Most of the iOS app developers are facing piracy problems today. There are many cases in which the app developers are forced to remove their apps even from the App Store due to piracy related problems. The story of Hackulous indicates that piracy plays a major role in jailbreaking too.
