    I think they have the ability todo whatever they want if the Repo belongs to them.

    AFAIK, cydia doesn't regulate. They do give warning messages for pirate repos, because those programs do mess up your phone.

    What repo are you talking about? don't use it if it bothers you.
    Also do you plan to report all the pirated softwares on NNTP.. FTP's? Try tackling that peev first. that will leave you breathless!! :cool:

    It's not scare mongering if it's true. Search the forums for posts by people who installed pirated versions of programs, then (surprise surprise) their phone crashes. :rolleyes: They get no pity or help from me. They're a bunch of leeches who won't support the jb community and reinforce the belief that jb users pirate.

    I had to install insanely repo to install the ibooks fix (and got the warning), because none of the other repos had the fix (to my knowledge). It sucks, because I see the legit cydia program (that costs money) then the stupid pirated program that's free from insanely.

    Yeah I remember having to use insanelyi for something too but I ended up deleting the source and whatever package I had installed from it because of that reason.

    You all seem to think I'm just one of those guys that goes around reporting everything and try to get it removed.

    I just want the warning message because about 3 things I had to install from it (1 of them was illegal, but I removed that) crash my phone constantly. I just want it there so people know it's unstable.

    The warning that you get before adding a repo source is their to protect cydias interests. Ie : you add the repo source and download a cracked tweak resulting in something going wrong, then cydia gets some blame.

    When I first entered the realms of jailbreaking and watching utube tutorials I added one of the well known 'repo's without knowing it provided the cracked version. I did download a couple of tweaks that were then listed as free, but after a short while I quickly became aware of the situation. Now neither of these 'illegal' tweaks ,as some put it made my phone crash ,or act weird !

    I ended up deleting the repo and the tweaks and purchased the paid versions in order to support the developers.

    I've asked before how these repo's and tweaks are illegal.
    Is it in the eyes of the law or immorally legal ?
    I'm not aware of a law that backs tweaks like for example the music industry is protected by copyright law.

    Glad you were lucky enough to avoid the agony of a crashed phone, but not everyone's that lucky.
    As for your other question, it'd help if you posted in grammatically, complete sentences. Missing, wrong and misspelled words makes it difficult to understand you. I'm not being sarcastic either.

    Copyright protects the code that was written for the tweaks. It's unlikely that the author has the money to go after you in court though, so it comes down to your own morals if you do it or not.
