    Hi,

    Last I have posted questions about Cydia and installous, more specific about "size missmatch" error, but my post seems to be deleted.

    My question is -- Is it illegal to ask questions about that?? and if it is why it is not stated in the rules. My post just gone without warning.

    Any clue Mr. Admin!!!:mad:

    I personally can't say with out double checking but most likely you may have discussed a topic that is illegal in this private forum. we have several mods. Usually you receive either a warning or private message You have not been banned as you are here .



    Please read our rules

    http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-hacking/2892-hacking-section-rules-please-read.html

    I checked yes you discussed cracked apps and games which is illegal thus your post was deleted by admin......col

    Did you even read the rules? the rules are only a few sentances long but say:

    Its illegal, its agianced the forum rules, dont post about it, take your anger somewhere else to someone who cares about theifs.

    I find it funny how you get all mad about your posts about illegal activity being removed. They are just posts, they didnt BAN you, they are not going to call the cops. Just deal with it and move on to another forum online that does discus illegal iPad activity openly.

    It can't be any worse than the idiot that pirated a free app from installous. That was hilarious.

    Hi,

    I am sorry if missunderstand your rules, but I didn't disscuss or asked about specific cracked apps, it's a simple questions about error message.

    Mr. Admin, I didn't get any warning or inbox message, I have chekcked everything, but I was furious about the deleting my thread without a warning or clue about what's wrong.

    Everything is clarified and now I know the reason.:)

    What's the point of haveing a Hack forum, beside :) laughing at whoever brick his iPad and then come to this forum to wine about it and search for help. Isn't that illegal or just for learning purpose, or spirit is not illegal.

    I don't want tom know anything about installous anymore, everything available online, just a click ad sync.

    Thanks for everyone who share his thought.

    The hack forum can be used to talk about a bunch of different things. You can hack your iPad and install Iconoclasm, SB Settings, etc...I never use installous.

    There's a big difference between simply jailbreaking and stealing. One is legal, one is not.

    Exactly hacking and stealing are two separate things.

    How many of you didn't use stolen software on his iPad??

    How many of you hacked his iPad just to change some icons and settings??

    Just the iPad not your Mac or PC.

    I don't use stolen software. I use jailbreak to give me quick access to settings, to make 5x5 rows of icons, to hide icons I don't use, and a few other things. not to pirate software.

    If you pirate the software then you can't update the software until a new crack comes out. Then the App Store has that damn red number which annoys the hell out of me.

    You spent 750 bucks on your WiFi iPad, probably 1200+ on your MacBook, quit being such a cheap asshole....*most* apps are less than a Starbucks coffee.

    You are so funny! Matt, what do you mean by "until a new crack comes out"

    What does crack mean?

    And ~ is jailbreaking the same as hacking?
