iPhone app cracking software now available for all

iPhone app cracking software now available for all Crackulous, the software application that strips copy protection from App Store applications has now been released to the general public and is easily accessible via a jailbroken iPhone.
For anyone with a jailbroken iPhone (or iPod Touch with firmware v2 or higher), simply head to Cydia and find it in the directory. When you install and launch the app, Crackulous will list all the applications you currently have on the device. Whichever one you want stripped of its protection, just click on it and wait a couple of minutes.

Now that the program is available to everyone however, Apple is sure to notice. There is no fair way to use this, as it promotes complete theft. That's not to say that most of the apps from the app store haven't already been available via P2P and warez for months now but I think its fair to say that the guys over at Hackulous may be seeing a cease and desist letter soon.

Every single time an organization has gone after a circumvention software or technique, the internet has exploded with copy after copy.

All a C&D will do is assure that this gets blasted on DIG like 3 billion times.
