The community engaged in the cracking of Apple DRM and the indexing of unprotected applications for Apple devices has introduced a number of interesting innovations. Apart from cracking applications for the unreleased Mac App Store, it also announced an interesting “reverse BitTorrent” system intended for jailbroken devices that is supposed to increase cracked software availability in the web.
The Hackulous community has spent the last 2 years to circumvent the DRM on Apple’s devices. Their plan has been fairly straightforward – they have been doing that just because they trusted that official Apple’s App Store is unfair to consumers. The reason for such belief is that Apple’s App Store provided no trial service or refund policy.
The community is most famous for 2 products: Apptrakr and Installous. The first one actually is a web-based index of cracked software with 10-11 million users a month. Another one, Installous, is an application resident on 8-9 million jailbroken Apple devices. It enables their owners to install application available on Apptrakr and elsewhere.
Recently Hackulous announced some new developments, including upgrades to “Clutch” – an application that allows to crack iOS software, along with its GUI Crackulous. Besides, the community also represents “Overdrive”, preventing applications from becoming self aware.
While Apptrakr has also got upgrades, an update of the new Installous 4 package seems to be a huge step forward. Previously, owners of App Store apps had to crack the apps with something like Clutch so that they could later submit it to Apptrakr. However, now the community offers a kind of “reverse BitTorrent” called Mobile Hunt. It is described as a very clever way of utilizing a current network of peers to offer a solution to the app supply bottleneck.
In short words, when a user launches Installous, he will get a pop up offering him to add a new application to a queue in the background so that it would start uploading its tiny pieces, just like a torrent. It means that unlike BitTorrent, Mobile Hunt starts with thousands of copies of the same piece of an application, which little pieces upload from everyone’s device to make one final copy. In the end, that copy will become available from Apptrakr for millions users to download.
Another piece of news from Hackulous is that Apple’s yet unreleased Mac App Store is already cracked in security. Not that bad for a day!
