#31794 Our recent downtime - Explained

Posted by iChr0niX on 06 November 2014 - 10:26 AM

Hey AppAddict Members :)                                                           

 

 

First of all let us start by apologising for the last  2-3  weeks of downtime.  It has been a horrendous and stressful few weeks for all involved.

 

Before we go into details, I'd also like to say welcome back :D  ..... AppAddict are here to stay forever (and we are not shutting down), despite the numerous lies you may have heard and read about us!

 

Before you read any further, I would like to make it clear that I have no wish to defame (put down) anybody

However, sadly, due to the position that AppAddict has been put in, due to the numerous, ongoing, lies that have been told by: several people (including trollers), and also the various rumours that have been spread, I feel that it is only fair that the TRUTH is told.

 

The background

As you guys may be aware, I (iChr0niX) founded AppAddict, and second on the team was our talented App developer, Zorro, followed later Freddy (now an ex member of AppAddict).

 

Some time ago, some of you may remember having read my previous post when Freddy had, WITHOUT MY KNOWLEDGE OR CONSENT, hosted AppAddict on a different domain (a .cc site).  It was also at that time, that he also locked me out of my own site: AppAddict.

 

I had hoped that agreement could be made, but sadly, it came to our attention that various "ontoward things" had been going on, which left AppAddict in the sad position that it was not viable for Freddy to continue with AppAddict. It was also brought to our attention that he was working on setting up a "rival" site.

 

Then you may also remember reading this (dated 22 September 2014): https://forum.appadd...re-please-read/     (copy below)

- END OF COPY OF POST FROM 22 SEPTEMBER 2014 -

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

More recently

Since then, the following has happened (which has resulted in AppAddict's recent down-time):

Our ex-staff member (Freddy aka Dark Voider aka other aliases that he goes under) that I entrusted with everything to do with AppAddict STOLE:

1. AppAddict's forum

2. The ENTIRE CONTENTS of AppAddict's forum

3. AppAddict's member list

4. Our twitter accounts

all to utilise for his own rival site! .... a site that he has now claimed that he set up for the AppAddict demoted staff .........................  THIS IS NOT THE TRUTH!

 

He had already set up his site (the same site I referred to in my post of  22 September 2014 https://forum.appadd...re-please-read/) prior to any staff demotions on AppAddict (which took place in mid-October 2014).

 

Additionally, despite what certain ex-staff have been saying, the majority of AppAddict staff that were demoted were demoted (in MID-OCTOBER 2014) for  being inactive or sporadically inactive.             

Furthermore, regrettably 2 staff members (who I am not naming) were demoted for regularly manipulating the system to gain maximum exposure (and therefore downloads) for their apps.  I had received numerous, continuous complaints about certain members of staff doing this, and had given adequate warning in the staff area that I was aware of what was going on (having also evidenced it myself). I played things fair (as I like to do) and gave these particular staff members more than adequate opportunity (approx 1 year!) to stop their manipulation and monopolisation. Sadly, despite this, their behaviour continued and I continued to receive numerous complaints.  Therefore, sadly, I was left with no choice than to demote the individuals concerned. 

 

EVERY STAFF MEMBER THAT WAS DEMOTED WAS SENT AN INDIVIDUAL PERSONAL EMAIL WHICH EXPLAINED EXACTLY WHY THEY WERE DEMOTED.

 

 

On the main page of his site it was quoted that “Almost everyone from AA is moved here, including Crackers, Moderators and other trusted people”.

THIS IS NOT THE TRUTH!

They stole AppAddict's member list - they even transferred AppAddict's members on to their services without your consent or knowledge!

They have ex-staff from AppAddict

They have NONE of AppAddict’s ACTIVE crackers, and NONE of AppAddict's ACTIVE moderators.

All of these lies were just more tactics to further defame AppAddict and to try to gain your trust!

 

 

In the forum of his site he stated that “We are the successor of our old AppAddict website”.

THIS IS NOT THE TRUTH!

 

 

Before destroying AppAddict's services, he hacked in to the server and he then sent all of AppAddict's members an email (with false information inside it) claiming that it was sent from AppAddict.

That false email and its contents should be disregarded, as yet again, IT WAS NOT THE TRUTH!

 

I would advise you that any future emails from his service should also be treated with extreme caution.

 

 

PLEASE BE ASSURED THAT HIS SITE HAS NO RELATION TO APPADDICT WHATSOEVER!

 

 

You may remember that we tried to warn you of possible dangers of his site in the message that we posted up on a temporary AppAddict server, at the time that we were hacked, but our efforts to try to protect you were also attacked.  As a reminder, below is a copy of the message that we posted up.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

BEGINNING OF COPY OF THE MESSAGE THAT WE POSTED UP  -

 

"We also wish to warn you of the potential danger that anyone faces when following their instructions to use their site/app. To use their site/app it requires you to install a ROOT CERTIFICATE which allows them to pretty much control your phone and even delete the entire contents of your phone, if they choose. I have pictured a copy of the certificate to show you exactly how dangerous installing this could be.

 

 

donottrust.png

 

 

As you can see, they could: 

1. Control your phone remotely ! 

2. Collect your personal data ! 

3. Add and remove accounts ! 

4. Add & remove restrictions of accounts ! 

5. List, install and manage apps on your idevice !

 

 

 

So I would like all our members to think very hard before having anything to do with the stolen site especially if you hold any personal details on your device eg: 

iTunes account details, any passwords, banking/bank card details, PayPal details, addresses, phone numbers, personal photos, text messages, etc. etc. 

If you have already linked your device/s to his site we would STRONGLY advise you keep your data safe and in your own hands and remove this "Device Management' profile from your device/s NOW! - He has stolen and leaked your personal information before whats to stop him doing it again but this time he has alot more personal information to hand with this profile on your device/s
 

BE WARNED THOUGH, on the forum they quote that “We respect your secuiry and privacy” ! 

BUT 

Remember as we previously warned you (https://forum.appadd...are-please-read ) the owner of the stolen site is the one that STOLE and PUBLISHED ALL of AppAddict’s member information, the site structure & coding and shared it across the World Wide Web. 

Would you seriously trust this person and/or his team to have remote access to your personal device? Please, for your own protection, think wisely

 

END OF COPY OF THE MESSAGE THAT WE POSTED UP  -

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

 

 

As you can see, it has been a difficult time for AppAddict and those involved. We have been working hard consistently around the clock to get AppAddict live again, so that we can continue to fulfil our service to you, and honour the agreements that we have made with our customers.

 

Not only have our services been crippled, but we were effectively "gagged".

 

Furthermore,STILL to-date, we here at AppAddict continue to be CONSISTENTLY LIED ABOUT and REGULARLY DEFAMED and attacked via the internet.

 

It is disappointing that this situation has been caused.

 

 

On a brighter note we are doing a mass give-away to show our appreciation for all our users. We will be giving 300 iSignCloud registrations away to the first 300 PREVIOUSLY registered users that come to the forum and post in THIS thread!

Please only post one message, and please bare in mind that posts may be moderated - thank you.

 

Not only that but we will be giving all users FREE AppAddict premium for 6 months - call it an early Christmas present.

(The premium has now been allocated to all accounts).

 

***The iSignCloud FREE registrations will all be registered FROM - Monday 10th November 2014  Monday 17th November 2014 (delayed 1 week due to extended downtime and securing of infrastructure) so get your comments in now to make sure you're in the first 300 ! ***

 

 

We want to say a special thank you to our loyal AppAddict members who have stuck with us and have shown us your support throughout this time ... your support IS appreciated and goes a long way :)

 

 

 

Kind Regards

The AppAddict Admin Team

https://www.appaddict.org

 

 

EDIT BY THE DUCHESS:

** IMPORTANT UPDATE RE THE 300 x FREE iSIGNCLOUD REGISTRATIONS **

Unfortunately there has been a delay in implementing these.  This is due to the fact that we have been on the receiving end of further incidents over a period of time, which have regrettably caused further crucial work to be undertaken, therefore causing this unavoidable delay.  We do sincerely apologise to all those waiting, but, naturally, we have not been able to control the actions of others.  We do hope that you understand, and please accept our sincere apologies.  We have not forgotten you!  :) **

 

** If your message does not appear immediately: do not worry - there is no need to post again:

ALL messages are time-stamped and will keep their original placement :)

 

NB:  Please do not post queries re support in this thread:

please post any questions re support / bugs in their respective threads - thank you

 

Also, please do not cut and paste iChr0niX's message! ... please leave a message of your own .... thanks  x

#18328 [HOW TO] Bypass the iCloud Activation Lock on the iPhone 4

Posted by MONGOLO on 29 December 2013 - 09:55 PM

===========update ========== try this first it might have cell network, it is basically like method 3 , so see the method 3 section of tut for more info

 

 

*FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY. I AM NOT LIABLE AS TO WHAT YOU CHOOSE TO DO WITH THIS INFORMATION.

Tutorial Iphone 4 GSM IOS 7.1.1 Icloud Bypass and Cell restore

restore to IOS 7.1.1
upon restore remove from pc do not let itunes detect that its locked. no sim installed no wireless period.
turn off phone close itunes and enter DFU MOde..  (Google that one)

Launch ssh_rd_rev04b-iPhone4-RevA.jar   (attached.)
when its done connect to Localhost port 2022 user root pw alpine using WinSCP  (attached)
once scp loads open terminal window and run mount.sh

get to root and go mnt1/applications
Backup folder Setup.app Just in case we need it later.. and delete it
move back another step and copy the Mnt1 and Mnt2 folders (attached)

* Restart the Iphone. use tiny umbrella to get out of recovery mode.
should be bypassed however itunes will still ask for the unlock data...  so do not connect it.

now enter DFU mode again
reconnect with ssh*.jar and winscp remember to run mount.sh
navigate to /mnt2/root/Library/ and placed the Caches folder (attached)
in that same folder place Lockdown folder (attached)

add these to the lockdown folder.  https://mega.co.nz/#...NBvR5mPjpAVj3CQ

now navigate to /mnt1/usr/libexec and put the lockdownd file : https://mega.co.nz/#...DAJZasw74llu00I

 

 

* Restart and itunes will greet you to your new Iphone. no sim yet.
add wireless.
now add your icloud account to it
One iphone gave me the error that no more free accounts could be added so that one is a permanent ipod touch.
send a msg to it from icloud then erase/wipe the iphone from remote and finally remove from icloud.

 

Iphone will reboot to inactivated state.. restore to 7.1.1
put in your sim and youre golden
THIS RESTORES CELL SERVICE AS THE SETUP.APP HAS A SETUP FILE THAT EXECUTES WHEN ACTIVATION ENDS THIS IS WHAT ENABLES ALL THE FUNCTIONS OF THE IPHONE.

Tested in 3 iphones so far One with Hard Lockdown and the one that had a limit on icloud accounts.
also for JailBreak use Pangu works perfectly fine


FOR CDMA AND CDMA-GMS MODELS I AM ATACHING THE REQUIRED MNT1 AND MNT2. NOTE I HAVE NOT TESTED THESE AS I DO NOT HAVE ACCESS TO ONE.

I am no selling this procedure but Donations are welcome.

This tutorial will show you how to remove iCloud activation from an iOS 7 device that has been iCloud locked. The process will keep all the media that was previously on the device (unless you just fresh restored).  At the moment there is the Doulci server side bypass, in beta mode, and there servers are nto always up, but it works on more devices, more inffo here - [HOW TO] Bypass the iOS 7 iCloud Activation Lock - on iPads, iPhone 4/4s/5, and iPod touch 5g

 
CURRENT STATUS - 5/4/2014 -

is in and out of working , if it works, bypass for ipod 5 all wifi ipads, possible iphone 5, 4s
[ES]     AL MOMENTO SOLAMENTE SE PUEDE DESACTIVAR ICLOUD EN EL IPHONE 4, Y NO HAY SERVICIO CELLULAR - PERO VEAN ESTO - EL SERVIDOR DE MERRUK - POSIBLEMENTE REGRESARA - Y POSSIBLEMENT HABRA UN BYPASS PARA iPADS Y iPOD ! -http://doulci.net/

طريقة لتخطي مشكلة iCloud Activation Lock وتفعيل جهازك على نظام iOS 7
 
{ESPAÑOL} desactivar icloud en iphone 4 (lo de todos los apratos es una mentira completa, pero el metodo es igual al que tenemos aqui, y funciona mu bien con el iphone 4) - esperanzadamente pronto incluire traduccion al espanol


DISCLAIMER: We do not support or condone theft of iOS Devices in any way (we can't say the same for apps on this site), this tutorial is intended for legitimate uses such as when buying a second-hand iPhone. before attempting this tutorial, please, try contacting the previuos owner first to have them remove their iCloud account,  as this will permamntly remove the iCloud lock, more info: http://www.youtube.c...h?v=x-sI9uR01XM Additionally, none of the tools used in this tutorial are our products, use any products or services posted by other users in this thread at your own risk, and be wary of fraud when using a paid service.

Why only the iPhone 4?
The iPhone 4 has an unlockable bootloader, so hackers have access to the whole system to create tools such as the SSHRamdisk. The newer iOS devices have been jailbrkon, but the evaders made a concious decicion not to allow jailbreaking of activation locked devices. BUT BREAKING NEWS - SEE HERE FOR MORE DEVICE SUPPORT - [HOW TO] Bypass the iOS 7 iCloud Activation Lock - on iPads, iPhone 4/4s/5, and iPod touch 5g

 
oh and by the way if you are seeing junk like this : http://www.gadgetwid...k-beta-testing/ it is porbably fake. gadgetwide is a fake and so is its boss varo derebrosian. GADGETWIDE = COMPLETE FAKES!

 

BUT PEOPLE SEE THIS MERRUK , WHICH FOR A TIME OFFERED A BYPASS FOR IPOAD TOUCH 5G AND IPADS- THIS IS A SERVER SIDE BYPASS AND IS REAL AND LEGIT (WHEN ITS ONLINE)
http://doulci.net/

 

=======WHAT YOU NEED======
First You will need a few pieces of software, and an iPhone 4 USB cable, and a PC or Mac conmputer... you may also want to grab a beer or two. :)

 

IF YOU HAVE ACCESS TO THE DEVICE - NO PASSCODE AND ARE ON iOS 7.0.X TRY THIS - [How To] Disable iCloud any iPhone on iOS 7.0.4 W/ Access to settings

METHOD 1 (Uses a GUI, way easier, faster but PC ONLY) This is the best method, because afterward, you can easily use evasion to unthered jailbreak, if you are on mac, it is worth it to wait until you have a PC around to do it this way.
1. smolk1984's iOS Soft Dev Pack (PC) DOWNLOAD: http://forum.iphonec...ft-dev-pack-pc/

  METHOD 2 server side method, supports iPad wifi models, iPod touch 5g

http://doulci.net/

METHOD 3 (Uses an SSH client, manual deleting the setup.app, PC and Mac, this method will actually work on an iPhone 4 and lower (3GS etc.) on any iOS, for example if you want to activate without a SIM card)
 
Download the full tool set instead - http://forum.iphonec...ypass-tool-set/
 
or separatly... DOWNLOAD MSFTGuy's SSH RAMDisk tool this cool Java application (which does most of the work): http://iphonecake.co...h-ramdisk-tool/
For more info about the java program, and to contact the developer, etc. see here: http://msftguy.blogs...eation-and.html
2. An SSH client, such as:
WINSCP (PC) (this one works best!)download: http://winscp.net/eng/index.php
PuTTY (PC): (people have been haviong trouble with this one)download: http://www.putty.org/
terminal (MAC) (included in OS X as your SSH client) "If you are looking for something that keeps track of servers/connections via a GUI, Terminal.app will already do that for you. Launch it and then from the menu select Shell > New Remote Connection. This will give you a connections manager window."

3.DOWNLOAD TINY UMBRELLA (to get out of DFU, or do it manually): http://blog.firmwareumbrella.com/

METHOD 4 -  Downgrade to iOS 6 or 4 (working cell network a work in porgress....)) see this post (same thread as this)  for more info: thnx onedeaf
see here foir more info  https://www.youtube....h?v=WL-o0q3FcNg https://www.youtube....h?v=Si9Z92PGzbY , http://iosbreak.alte...ade-senza-shsh/ ,  thnx lczsantana   
   AVOID IT MAY LEAVE YOUR PHONE IN DFU MODE
METHOD 5 - hardware fix - replacing a chip to change iemei... more info HERE OR HERE
 
 
STUFF YOU NEED FOR METHODS 1-3
1. Java 6 or higher

2. SAM to activate the cellular network after bypassing the activation lock,
add repo.bingner.com in cydia, install SAM and SAMPrefs or if you don't have access to cydia, etc. download SAM and it's dependencies as a .deb: http://iphonecake.co...d-dependencies/ , further in the tutorial, this will be discussed more. PATCHED BY APPLE, DO NOT USE

METHOD 2

a server side method, theirsite is not always available, but when its up it works on ipod touch , ipads, http://doulci.net/


METHOD 3 (Uses an SSH client, manual deleting the setup.app, PC and Mac, this method will actually work on an iPhone 4 and lower (3GS etc.) on any iOS, for example if you want to activate without a SIM card)

  • Before starting backup your iphone on to Itunes and put it into airplane mode.
  • Once the restore is complete you will see IOS 7 welcome screen
  • Power the iphone off and into DFU mode, and it is plugged in into the computer
  • Run the Java application just downloaded above and it will run a few codes of Magic

When its done you should see this

5. Right after that fire up PuTTy (or WINSCP, or cyberduck, terminal,etc.). if you are using terminal, do this: "If you are looking for something that keeps track of servers/connections via a GUI, Terminal.app will already do that for you. Launch it and then from the menu select Shell > New Remote Connection. This will give you a connections manager window."

Next, put in localhost as hostname and the port 2022 , username root , password: alpine

? Below is the connection window for Putty, winscp and other windows SSH clients should look the same. ?

New Remote Connection Window in terminal on OS X , for mac see below to do it with commands...

Then you should a window that will prompt you for a username and password, which is root and alpine.

5. Press the little terminal button to open a terminal window in winSCP
 
2014_terminal_Console.jpg
 
Enter command: mount.sh      , press execute...
comands.jpg
 
6. Now we need to delete the setup.app
 Just go to /mnt1/var/Applications
 
2014_02_12_16_33_42_Applications_root_lo
 
Then click right and delete setup.app or if you want, but preferably rename it to setup1.app or soemthing if you think it may come in handy later on....
delete_setip_app.jpg
 
7. To hacktivate (Still in BETA) or unlock iCloud On the device side go to / root     this is available http://forum.iphonecake.com/index.php?/files/file/68-icloud-manual-bypass-tool-set/HERE YOU MUST DO THIS STEP IF YOU INTEND TO JAILBREAK, afterward it should be readily jailbreakable with evasion.
b5.png
 
8. now just copy over the contents of bypsss 3,1 3,2 3,3 over  (3,3 is cdma iPhone 4)
b6.png
 
 
9. after that,  reboot
 
10. Your device will now be in recovery mode Use TinyUmbrella to kick it out of recovery mode.
Tiny_Umbrella_v7_04_00.jpg
 
-----or---
do it with commands (may need to do this on mac)
Right after that run mount.sh in the terminal, then type in the following commands

  • cd/mnt1/Applications
  •  
  •  
  • rm -R Setup.app (not sure aout if Setup is spelled that way, if you type Set and hit tab it should autocomplete

Once there just simply delete Setup.app and hold the power and home button to reset the phone.

When you boot up you will see the iphone recovery screen, don't mind that just TinyUmbrella to get out of recovery mode. (see above)


The iphone should boot up after a few and you will also be able to reboot your device and use it, though at the moment the cell network probabaly wont work, but all other features hould work.

*Since it isnt officially activated it may have limited compatibility around Itunes, but I will look into that later
[but thats why we have cracked app sites, no need for iTunes! ]
*Update, Itunes works on Iphone 4 (if you use smolk's soft dev pack tool, and in manual mode copied over contents of 3,1 3,2 3,3)

Activating the cell network (all methods) (AT THE MOMENT REMAINS A WORK IN PORGRESS )
 
 
YOU CAN TRY THIS BUT IT MAY OR MAY NOT WORK....

#20266 AppAddict is Celebrating its 1st Birthday!!!

Posted by iChr0niX on 21 January 2014 - 06:28 PM

aaBirthday.png

 

 

 

 

So today it is one year since i launched the first version of the AppAddict app sharing website.

It has been one hell of a journey the last 12 months, its been excitement, fun, laughter as well as a lot of damn hard work i might add!

 

 

In this past year AppAddict has grown into a massive project from when we first began, it has come way further than i had imagined it could do in this short space of time. There are a number of reasons fro this, sheer determination to provide the best app sharing experience, the team of staff i have the pleasure of working with & lastly but most importantly you guys the community and spirt of AppAddict! We have received masses of support over the past months, from encouraging comments, to offers of translations, to offers of modding etc..... Without the joint effort of the community no matter how good a service we create it would be worth nothing if it was not used and loved by its users. We do what we do to please and its as simple as that, if we have no one to please then there is no point!

 

 

To celebrate our Birthday we will be having a BIG BIRTHDAY GIVEAWAY!

Prizes to giveaway are

 

1 x iPad Air 128GB Cellular

1 x £100 iTunes Voucher

2 x £50 iTunes Voucher

5 x £10 iTunes Vouchers

25 x AppAddict Premium Registrations

25 x iSignCloud Premium Registrations

 

I will announce the competition details in a further post this evening so be sure to look out for this!!!

 

 

I would like to say a few special thanks to a few certain individuals that make AppAddict what it is today a magnificent community service!

 

 

Zorro

Well what a guy! An absolute genius at app development! 

When i originally decided to launch AppAddict after the closure of AppTrackr, i had sought out an app developer who was supposedly working on the app as the site was been developed so we could launch both at the same time. About a week before the site launch i found out that no work had been done on the app and that the developer had no time to complete this. I began to panic and scoured the web looking for an app developer who would be able to work magic in a short timescale. This is when i stumbled across Zorro, i presented him with the project and he was confident that he would be able to get this done within a few weeks. At first i was doubtful it could be done in the timescale, but i was soon reassured when that evening he presented me with some prototypes of the App already pulling information from our old app database. From that moment on i have found myself constantly amazed at the work Zorro produces, he has provided us with AppAddict iOS App 1,2,3 & 4 (on the way), AppAddict+ & CrackAddict. Zorro i couldn't of got this far without you, thanks!

 

 

Freddy

Tends to be in a grumpy mood (LOL)! But a legend when it comes to coding!

So Freddy joined the AppAddict team about 3 weeks after the initial launch, i was actually introduced to him via Zorro as they had worked together on some previous projects. It was at this point that AppAddict changed dramatically and we began to heavily implement new ideas and feature unseen before in the app sharing community. Finally there was a team of guys perfect for the job in hand, we all shared the same ideas and could all do something about it. The first thing Freddy did was practically bulldozer the old website and we basically started from fresh. I won't lie i was a bit gutted as i had spent weeks on AppAddict version 1 and i felt it was all been destroyed. Once Freddy had finished new site i was just amazed how well it looked, operated basically everything i loved. We started to add features like app submission approval, mass uploading, verified crackers, Hall of Fame, direct installer, OTA installer and much much more. All this was made possible by Freddy's amazing programming skills. Bro i couldn't of done this with out you either, thanks!

 

 

dkbame

A very under rated Admin!!! Provides masses of background work for AppAddict!

So dkbame joined AppAddict in the early days, he was always a very active member who joined in all discussions. I had spoke to him privately on a number of occasions and we always got on like a house on fire. He would always offer his assistance and always stated that if there was anything i needed just to ask. As time went by he joined the cracking team and from there i really got to know him better, i liked what he was about a nice family man with the same ethos as myself. I asked dkbame if he would become a forum moderator, he did this and app moderating for sometime with no hassle or complaints ever. By this point i had been speaking to him on a daily basis and becoming good friends. June time last year i asked him if he would like to become an Admin, as i was getting busier in my life and AppAddict needed a reliable, well grounded Admin to be around more than i was able to. He has since started to help me with infrastructure, and is always keen to learn and do more things. Thanks mate for been part of the team!

 

 

Praiser

Our very talented graphics designer and also forum GURU!! 

Again Praiser has always been on the scene from the early days. He has always been involved heavily with the forums i think he lives there sometimes LOL! I wanted to say a specific thank you to Praiser as on many occasions at the very last minute i have contacted him stating that i urgently need some artwork making for a new project for example. Now i know that producing art is not just as simple as a few clicks it takes time to get right and also time to develop ideas for the intended work. He has never once complained at me, he has always just said ok bro, and then produced the highest quality graphics every single time without fail! So praiser thank you also for being part of the AppAddict team.

 

 

Please guys don't think i don't appreciate what every single member of staff does here on AppAddict that also includes AppAddict and also other crackers that submit here. If i was to thank each individual the post would be even longer than it is going to be. Please accept my biggest thanks to each and everyone of you that actively contributes to making AppAddict what it is today.

So many many thanks to

#31004 MEMBER & STAFF WARNING - New Service Beware Please Read!

Posted by iChr0niX on 22 September 2014 - 04:42 PM

Member & Staff Warning

 

It has come to our attention that Freddy, our old infrastructure employee, has begun to start his own rival service!

At AppAddict we have always welcomed healthy competition.

It keeps all parties on their toes and makes us improve upon both current and new features, to keep the users interested.

 

I felt the need to write this warning post as right from the offset Freddy is lying on his new service!

He is stating that he is the ex-founder of AppAddict, this is a complete lie!

 

I am the founder of AppAddict, and second on the team was our talented App developer, Zorro.

 

Freddy didn't actually join the team for a number of months after, so his statement about being AppAddict ex-founder is very misleading and just about sums up this man.

 

Also one more thing I would like to highlight, which I believe is the most important aspect of this post,

Freddy, the owner of this new service, is the man that disclosed

all member and staff information including emails and password hashes to the whole world through various sources.

 

He did this simply over a disagreement within the team, and worse still,

he did this without ANY thought for AppAddict users or staff.

His actions were purely for his own selfish reasons.

 

As stated earlier AppAddict welcomes healthy competition, but we felt it necessary to inform and warn all users about the kind of person running this new service and we wanted to make sure you are all fully aware that its Freddy who leaked all your personal information, so trust him with extreme caution.

 

Starting a new service with a lie doesn't seem very professional either!

 

Freddy, good luck with your new service.

#5954 FREE - 1 Year Premium For All Verified Crackers

Posted by iChr0niX on 06 June 2013 - 07:22 PM

Yes you read it right!

 

We are giving all our verified crackers 1 year of FREE premium access. This is something i always had planned and had just not got round to it yet.

 

We wanted to do this to show our appreciation for all you do for AppAddict and also for the community. Without you crackers no one would be able to benefit from the services offered here ;)

 

I will start to add the premium to all accounts over the next two days so please make sure you are signed into the app to enable the features.

 

 

P.S. We have already had people trying to scam the system as we expected would happen, people have tried to find loopholes in the payment system, tried to use fake cards and sell premium cheaper and also sharing account details and letting people log on to their account. We have closed all the holes and a number of members were banned from AA today and also had their UDiDs blacklisted so the app will not work on their devices.

 

Please guys do not share you account information as we can see how many devices are linked and if we think you are sharing we will ban your accounts, obviously im aware many of you have a number of devices like myself and it is fine to link your own devices and your house hold family members but that is it.

 

So back to a positive note expect your free year of premium soon !

#17638 CrackAddict - All In One Native iOS Cracking Tool for iOS 6 and iOS 7

Posted by iChr0niX on 22 December 2013 - 11:55 PM

CA_Logo.png


So Zorro AppAddict's iOS App guru has done it again and created a magnificently powerful cracking tool CrackAddict. CrackAddict is a native iOS app that can be run on a iPod, iPad or iPhone running iOS 6.0+. Not only is CrackAddict a cracking tool but it also uploads your cracked apps (currently only to iFilez.co only) and not only that but it also posts the cracked app to AppAddict. This is an all in one cracking tool that has been designed from the ground up to streamline and make easier the cracking process. We hope that creating such an easy to use, all in one tool will benefit the community by introducing new crackers resulting in more apps on the AppAddict database.




Features


Native iOS App

Displays Crackable Apps in GUI List
Displays prior Cracked Apps

Shows AppAddict Wishes (with links to AppStore Apps)

Uploads Cracked IPA to filehost

Publishes App information and links to AppAddict

Protects the cracker from credit stealing

Patches protections (e.g. Plague Inc.)



Customisable Settings


Cracker Name
Compression Level

Remove iTuneMetaData

Use MinimumOSVersion




How To Get CrackAddict


Please add the AppAddict Repo to get CrackAddict

https://cydia.appaddict.org





Requirments


In order for CrackAddict to work you must have an AppAddict ID, and also the AppAddict app must be installed on your devices. As of writing this post there is currently no app sync for iOS 7 JailBreak so AppAddict app on iOS 7 is only currently possible via RegMyUDiD iSignCloud

#23389 UPDATE - 18 March 2014

Posted by iChr0niX on 18 March 2014 - 12:08 PM

UPDATE

 

Hi Guys 

 

Sorry for the silence on this situation it is a little out of order i must admit. Ok so let me explain what has been going on over the past few months. So you know AppAddict is porvided free to the community and was primarily funded by Google ads, we used to recieve just enough to cover all the massive server costs that our operation incurs.

 

Last moth we had a real battle with Google and basically they revoked our right to display adverts as you are probably aware due to not seeing google ads on the site anymore. Not only that but they refused to pay us the last 2 months of advert revenue which put us in an even worse position. So basically they have withheld about £6k from us. This is all money that was to repay server bills that i myself for out for upfront as Google always pay behind.

 

Because of all this things like iTunes vouchers and iPads Air for prizes have had to wait, i say wait as i would not dream of saying that you guys can not get your prizes im not like that i wouldnt rip people off, but i hope you understand that my main priority is to keep AppAddict afloat and until we find and implement an advert provider that gets us similar income to Google the prizes will have to wait for now.

 

Obviously this is my main priority at the moment as AppAddict as of now is coming all from my own pocket and whilst i dont mind as this is how it was in the begining AA costs alot more now as more servers have been required over the past year. I only have limited suply of money that will dry up eventually.

 

So again many many apologies for the situation and the lack of updating you guys, i really hope you all do understand and i will get AA back on track.

#192 How To Crack iOS Apps

Posted by iChr0niX on 13 February 2013 - 04:08 AM

Cracking iOS Apps
 
**VIDEO AT THE BOTTOM OF TUTORIAL I SUGGEST READING THIS FIRST, AS THERE IS MORE DETAIL IN THIS TUTORIAL**

Ok so first of all id like to start off by stating that I’m relatively new to cracking iOS apps but have some knowledge and skills in other areas, which has enabled me to pick this up quite quickly. But I can see how this would be really difficult for the average user so I have decided to write in my own words exactly how to crack an app from start to finish.

It has taken me a long time to write this tutorial so if any one would like to use it else where that’s great it means I have done a good job but please credit me for my work.

I will make some videos and add tomorrow

What is Cracking iOS Apps

iOS cracking is the process by which iOS applications are decrypted (cracked) so they may be used on other jailbroken devices. The method used is crude but simple: a debugger is attached to the executable and is used to dump the decrypted segments before the executable launches. The decrypted segments are then transposed onto the original binary, and the LC_ENCRYPTION_INFO load command's cryptid field is changed to 0.

How to Crack iOS Apps - tools available

I have been using a combination of Clucth (by @KimJongCracks) and also Rasticrac (by @iRastignac) so my guide will be based upon these two tools. and last but not least CrackAddict the in-house cracking tool powered by clutch, which is the easiest for beginners...

 

CrackAddict - this is essentially a GUI for Clutch, and for beginners is the easiest way to crack, upload, and submit apps to AppAddict, all straight from your idevice - see here for more info and how to use it - CrackAddict - All In One Native iOS Cracking Tool for iOS 6 and iOS 7 - it is much easier to use than any of the other tools listed on this page...but the others are much more fun...

 

Clutch (for a while known as ClutchPatched) - for a full tutorial on crackaing with clutch, for how to use and install the latest version, see [HOW TO] Crack iOS apps with Clutch (now on 64bit!)This runs on all Devices including 64bit devices such as iPhone 5s , for bug reports, etc. the developers of clutch take messages in THIS THREAD

Rasticrac is an updated version of the popular cracking tool PCM (PoedCrackMod). This now runs on iOS 7 on all devices.....  This is a very powerful cracking tool and I suggest using it! See THIS THREAD For the latest version of Rasticrac - Rasticrac v3.1.3, as the appaddict repo does not have the latest version at the momnet.


Tools you will need for Cracking

Obviously you will need some kind of iDevice, ideally it will be at least 16gb although I would recommend at least 32gb as the cracks take space on your device until you move them off.
You can get all the required tools from the standard Cydia repos and the AppAddict repo – please add the following repo to Cydia

 

http://AppAddict.org/repo

EDIT: THE REPO ISNT ALWAYS UP TO DATE, SO I SUGGEST U INSTALL IT MANUALLY - SEE [HOW TO] Crack iOS apps with Clutch (now on 64bit!)

 

From our repo install the following packages:

Clutch
GNU Debugger (iOS 5&6)
Rasticrac (will install quite a few dependencies from the standard Cydia repo)

Search Cydia for the following packages and also install:

MobileTerminal
Screen

Optional Installs to make life easier

SBsettings
OpenSSH
iFile
AutoLock SBSettings

Also Optional NOT from Cydia Prompt iOS App (must of installed OpenSSH from Cydia for this to work locally) – Is a SSH client that can be used as a terminal window for you device. Advantages are it is able to run in the background, can launch multiple terminal sessions and also has lots of keyboard shortcuts easily accessible.

Ok so you have installed all the required tools you are ready to crack your first app.

Cracking

If Using MobileTerminal skip this step, if you are using Prompt instead of MobileTerminal open the Prompt App, click add connection.

SSH = localhost
Username = root
Password = Leave Blank

Click on “Connect”

This will open up a CMD prompt and ask for your root password if you have never changed it please enter or continue to enter your own password. I will explain below how to change your root password I highly advise you do this. Please follow the guide below apart from opening MobileTerminal

Open MobileTerminal

Type

su root



This will ask for your root password, if you have never changed it please enter

alpine


(or continue to enter your own password.)

At this point I would strongly suggest changing your root password if it is default to do this enter the following command

passwd root



Now enter your desired password
Then confirm the password again
If there are no errors and you are back to the command prompt you have successfully changed your password

Clutch
(get root acces first, see above)

At your cmd prompt type the following command

Clutch


(must have capital C) (unless you installed it manually and renamed it)

You will get this numbered menu

iPhone:~ root# clutch
You're using a Clutch development build, checking for updates..
Your version of Clutch is up to date!

Now enter

Clutch [corresponding number of App to be cracked]

 

for example if I want to crack Facebook, I enter

Clutch 5

Clutch will now begin to crack the chosen app/s and once done it will tell you and return to the command prompt. You have just cracked an iOS app! The cracked app/s are placed in

/var/mobile/Documents/Cracked   OR var/root/Documents/Cracked (now configurable!)



We will explain further into the document what to do with the cracked app and how to get it off of your phone and onto AppAddict.

Rasticrac

At your cmd prompt type the following command

rasticrac –m



this will now list all the encrypted applications that are installed on your device, it will list the application with a number, letter or combination of both at the side depending on how many apps you have installed.
At the prompt type in the App/s you wish to crack using the corresponding number/letter from the side of the apps name.
Rasticrac will now begin to work its magic and crack the app/s you have chosen. You will notice that Rasticrac speaks to you as it is cracking applications ;). You have just cracked an iOS app using Rasticrac. The cracked app/s are placed in

/var/root/Documents/Cracked



Getting your App onto AppAddict

Ok so you have cracked your app/s now you need to get it off your device, upload, and share the links. To do this you will need to use one of the following tools or methods to browse your iDevice’s file system

  • iFunBox
  • iExplorer
  • CyberDuck
  • An ftp client that can connect to sftp

I wont go into great detail here on how to use these applications as google is your friend and this is getting longer and longer. But basically you need to use one of the above to browse to the following location on your device

/var/root/Documents/Cracked




There you will see the app/s that you have cracked, move them to your Computer usually by just highlighting then dragging and dropping in the desired destination.

Once the cracked apps are safely on your computer rename them to include your Cracker name and its time to upload them. Sign up for your favourite file hosts and start to upload the apps please see here for AppAddict’s Approved list of file Hosts HERE


Once the app/s are uploaded you need to make a record of the links, the app versions and also get the itunes url for the app this can be done easiest I find by going HERE and searching the app. Once on the preview page with the screenshots and app information highlight the full URL from the address bar and make a note of it.

Once you have the iTunes URL, Link/s to your App/s and version/s of the app/s you can go HERE fill in the required fields and your app/s will be posted into the New & Noteworthy section of AppAddict for all to see and download.

Fix for Clutch’s cracked Apps crashing on ARMv7s Devices NO LONGER NECESSARY

Customisation & Auto Adding Cracker Name and Credit File[/background]

So if you are going to be cracking a lot of apps it would be a good idea to customise your cracking tools slightly and have your cracker name auto added to the file name. We can also make it so a secret credit file is placed within the app with your cracker name on it, this is so people can’t steal credit for your cracks.


Clutch
Spoiler


Rasticrac

Navigate to the following location on your device

/usr/bin



There you will see a file called “rasticrac“ open this file with your favourite text editor and amend the following depending on what you want **Be carefull in here as this is the main script also for Rasticrac. Here are the things you will most likely want to change:

# - Default CrackerName (or "Anonymous").
RCcracker="Anonymous" (Change to your cracker name)

# - Should "extra details" appear in Ipa name (ie: "iPad / 3GS / etc") ? (You can hate them)
RCextras="YES" (Change to NO if you w=don’t want extra information adding to the file names of your cracked apps)

# - Should script talk to you ? (it only speaks english, only with iOS4+, only with "speak" tool from Cydia)
RCspeak="YES" (Change to NO to turn the voice off)

# - Should artist's name be used in filename ?
RCartistfrommeta="YES" (Change to NO if you don’t want developers name in your cracked apps file name i.e. Rovio)

# - Default compression level is blank (aka "-6"), and is the best speed/size ratio.
# - Recommended. Upload/download/storage will be good.
RCcompression="" (Change to desired level -9 being smallest size and minus -1 largest – I recommend -9 or -8 as the smaller the apps the easier and quicker they are to upload)
# - Maximum compression ("-9") (also "-8" or "-7") is very very slow, but size is the best.

Hints & Tips

If you installed SBSettings and also AutoLock SBSettings it is a good idea to use the AutoLock toggle and turn it to off before you start cracking this will stop the device from going to sleep.

If you installed iFile and have a Dropbox account, you can install the Dropbox iOS App and link it to iFile. You do this by going to Preferences in iFile, then to Remote Servers and then Link Dropbox. Now browse to the location of the cracked app/s in iFile, you will need to add .zip to the end of the file name then simply click the file and choose Dropbox. This will open Dropbox and click save this will now sync the app to your account that I expect syncs with your computer. Just remember to remove the .zip before uploading it to the file host/s.

#18400 Recent outage & some news

Posted by Guest on 30 December 2013 - 01:23 PM

Hello everyone, including new-come jailbreakers:)

 

Recent outage has been caused by new users. Since jailbreak our user base reached 75K accounts with 120K devices connected. Also, amount visits per day increased 4x times, while our servers remains the same. We are trying to optimize everything till new year, but seems like we need to significantly improve our infrastructure - that will cause 1-2 day downtime. We will make status pages for AA soon.
