    Nothing. It just crashes because it's not actually an app compiled for the iPhone.

    It was supposed to stop iPhone/iPod crashes because of low memory, but it's fake...

    i agree, that's why in some ways the app store is better than cydia.. because apple actually have to test out and verify the aps sent in. It's only a matter of time before we get ipod viruses running around in cyberspace

    I'm pretty sure the guys at Cydia also check the apps they put on installer. If that wasn't the case, this app would've been on Cydia already, but seeing as the guys from Cydia were the ones who found out about this and exposed it. There was no way that this was going on Cydia.

    Let's just hope the developers and those hosting check the apps (like sleepers.net) before hosting them, it'll prevent frauds.

    Thanks for the heads up!
