Hackulous and Installous Has Been Shutdown

Installous which is one of the most popular apps for iPhone users created by the Hackulo Team Which has graced the home screen of our iPhones since the first generation of iPhone has shutdown.
Information reaching us today says that installous has shutdown and will not be available anymore. Take a look at the images to see for yourself.
What does this mean for jailbreakers?
It means that those that have cracked applications on their devices may not be able to get updates for such apps through installous.
Also, those that wants to test out an app before making purchase won't be able to do that via installous also.
Furthermore, AppSync for higher iOS' will not be available anymore. In fact, I go on and on to tell you what this situation mean but it will suffice to say that Installous have done well since its creation and have served well. Although, puy0 is somehow trying to be dumb in the excuse he gave ( shown belo)
Guys, Apple would be happy and developers also with these news and these means that 2013 may be very difficult for jaiilbreakers.
Reason for termination as given by puy0:

During all this time I have been actively searching for a lawyer to know how legal we were. Not the lawyer you can find just anywhere, but one that understands Internet legislations and specializes in copyright laws. Trust me, these people are rare, very in demand, and very expensive.

As such I have been looking for three months, and I finally found one recently. Unfortunately our discussion left me sad and even feeling stupid to have invested so much effort into this, and involved people with me… You see, after talking for more than an hour with him, I’m sorry but the conclusion is that what we do would be very hard to defend against in court.

I am at the moment already at risk, and would risk even more with the exposure that an Install0us v3 release will definitely bring me. Call me a coward, but as I said, hiding under covers is not a life for me. Moreover, these days in my country piracy is a hot subject among politicians… I do not want to be flamed in a trial for something that I do as a hobby, and I do not want to involve any people with me in this. I am sincerely sorry to the people who followed me thinking we were legit, my honest mistake.

In conclusion, the Hackulous team have made their impact to the iPhone community and we always know that things don't die without a replacement being born!
