I never expected this day would come but it just did. Yes, I posted late about this but it was because I was busy during the holidays that I never got to run this app during my very long vacation.
When I learned about it, I thought they upgraded Installous to a new version. But I wondered why there were no updates inside Cydia. I knew something was up so I searched Google and found out to my dismay that Installous is discontinuing its service.
Too bad. Tsk.
I believed Apple had the edge because people especially noobs can easily install cracked games in their jailbroken iDevices without having to worry about looking for specific games. If it is a paid app in the App Store, then it is bound to be also inside Installous.
I did not mind those annoying captcha whenever I open up a download link, whether dead link or not. True. There may be other alternatives there like VShare but the user interface sucks.
Many users are definitely sad while anti-piracy advocates are happy. Who knows, maybe they were the cause of this shutdown.
RIP Installous. It was a good run while it lasted.
The only way to unlock an Apple gadget’s full potential is to jailbreak it. Well, there is always the unlimited games out there once your iPhone gets jailbroken but other than that, you can really have full control of your iPhone’s system once you jailbreak it.
Sure, there are many free jailbreak software out there but if you want to be consistent with only one kind of software no matter what o.s. version your iPhone is running, you should check out iPhoneLox. The software is promising. It is tried and tested and has already been used by thousands of users who unlocked their iPhones, iTouch and iPads.
We all want software that does everything that we want in just a few clicks. iPhoneLox does just that. In less than 5 minutes your iPhone will accept any GSM sim card worldwide like Vodafone, Orange, Sprint, T-Mobile and more.
Unlock instant messengers and chat live with your friends, get MMS messaging and send all the video and picture messages you want. Interact with your home or office pc using the VNC Client which allows the iPhone to interact with remote computers.
All these without losing any of the iPhone’s features or functions. Check out this jailbreakme and see how easy it is to unlock your iPhone’s full potential.
Now this comes as a surprise. According to iClarified, ChevronWP7 Labs is an upcoming tool that will jailbreak any Windows Phone 7 device with Microsoft’s approval.
The service though will require a small fee – currently via PayPal – but this is to offset costs.
Unlike Microsoft, Apple has chosen not to embrace jailbreaking even though it has ‘borrowed’ many of its best features from jailbreak developers. In July of last year The Library of Congress ruled that jailbreaking your iPhone in order to install applications not approved by Apple and/or to unlock is legal.
