    Installer, the classic Installation application from RiP Dev is finally gone. After being a staple in the jailbreak landscape during the 1.1.x days, Installer fell into obscurity after its inefficient AppTapp framework was replaced by such alternatives like Cydia and Icy.

    Oh well...

    Installer did have a good ride... until NullRiver turned it over to Rip Dev.

    hm.. that is sad to hear, altough I use Cydia it was always nice to know there was also installer (which I think was a cooler name) and sometimes I just used it to look at things. Too bad installer was so slow.

    So what were the exclusive installer apps that you can't get in cydia??

    *cries*

    So it's over then. No hope. I hate you, RiPDev, hear me. Nullriver, where are you!

    Ugh. I didn't care much for Installer 4, but still, Installer 1-3 was awesome. Nothing could have surpassed it.

    Again, hate to anyone at RiPDev.

    This post fails for a number of reasons. Kids, this is what not to do.

    1: You are not first. Even if you were, nobody would care. Due to the fact that I actually posted the thread, I am first, not you, nor anybody else. Would you do this in the real world? Would you shout out first, or second, at every possible opportunity? I don't think you would, unless you wanted to be looked at funny by everybody from the cashier to the gas station salesman.

    2: Installer wasn't stopping anybody from downloading Icy, or *cough* the better and more full featured Cydia. *cough* Nobody downloaded Installer. The people that did removed it immediately. Nobody created new Installer repositories. It wasn't stopping anything at all. Nobody's market share was at all significantly affected by Installer's existence.

    3: Icy is a rebranding of the Installer name. It is Installer 5. Saying that Icy will prevail over Installer is saying that it will be the champion. Of itself. Which is not saying much.
