iDownloadBlog reports that popular iOS pirated app community Hackulous has announced that it is shutting down. This means that the Installous jailbreak tool used to install pirated apps on iOS devices will no longer be available. A statement from Hackulous reads:
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.
The report also observes that other piracy tools, both existing and new, will probably rise in popularity due to the removal of Installous. Piracy continues to be a major issue for many iOS app developers, as there have been many incidents of piracy causing developers to remove their apps from the App Store. Good riddance.
