    Are these Repo's safe to add/use? I've always been skeptical about adding these repo's just for security reasons. IMO, You just don't know what most of these developers do on the back-end of hacking paid Cydia apps.

    Am I paranoid for no reason?


    Again, all apologies if this question has already been posted.

    Those repo only host stolen and hacked Apps, how secure and safe you think they can be??

    Discussions about hacked or stolen app is against this forum rules.

    My bad, didn't mean to ruffle any feathers.

    But you're right, if they support hacked paid apps, it's probably something that isn't too secure in the first place.

    Thanx.

    You are paranoid for a very good reason. These people steal the developers hard work, and are probably not beyond hacking your phone.

    Even if it is not a stolen app, it is probably on a disreputable repo for a reason (I guess an app can be rejected from the regular repos out of quality and/or breach of privacy reasons).
