Sad news for pirates but brilliant news for iOS App Developers everywhere, it seems that Hackulous, the guys behind popular iOS cracked App Store Installous have decided to shut down.
The Hackulous team posted the following message on their website:
Goodnight, sweet prince.
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.
With lots of love,
The team gave no clear reason for shutting down Installous and Hackulous, some people are speculating that maybe Apple and its crack team of lawyers has something to do with it while others suggest that maybe it is because of the slow iOS 6 Jailbreak scene but whatever the case a “legend” is no more.
