BigBoss Warns Not to Use Pusher

BigBoss Warns Not to Use Pusher

BigBoss has posted a warning on his website not to use Pusher. Pusher is RiPDev's 2.2 version of a jailbreak that was released yesterday. BigBoss says RiPDev's version will block access to / partition and make it impossible to install Cydia.

Pusher is RiPDev's 2.2 version of a jailbreak. This should be avoided and not used. Instead use the dev team's jailbreaks. RiPDev's version will block access to / partition and make it impossible to install Cydia. (They want you using Installer of course). It's pretty much worthless since most the packages are in Cydia. The dev team's jailbreak allows you to use both Cydia and Installer. There is no valid reason to use Pusher instead of one of the pwnages below.

Update: This point had to be made. Pusher tries to say it doesn't void your warranty indicating that it is different than pwnage / quickpwn in this regard. It is not. This is a lie! Your warranty is officially voided, although a simple restore in iTunes undoes any jailbreak and you can always get warranty service. Using pusher or pwnage makes no difference in this regard.


Pusher is not better for newbies. The purpose of jailbreaking is to get as much non-appstore software onto your device as you can. Installer only offers about 8% of what is in Cydia. Certainly having 8% of the software packages is not good for newbies.

I guess installer really lost its appeal when rip dev and nullriver were going through their little power struggle..

One more voice in support. By the by, nobody in their right mind should use Installer in the 2+ series, there's nothing in their repo compared to Cydia. And that Kate is still a beyotch!

I dont trust the guys at rip dev anyway. I think their program is a security risk. They need to just hook up with cydia if they are legit. This "new" jailbreak, their talk of the other being "bad," etc... it all reminds me of ZIBRI as he went down into the flames of irrelevance.

What is with 'Rip Dev'? Assuming this is all above board and correct then people should avoid any of these guys packages. I can't trust these people anymore.

Please, un-jailbreak your iPhone: ripdev did that "stupid" thing for you! I'll not use that method now, because I don't want to loose all my apps, but I thing that the security of not opening you system partition worth it a try!

I don't trust anything from RipDev anymore, every Installer update has ended up giving me the ALOD. Uninstalling Kate removes all my apps from folders, which I have to use Categories to put them in folders again.
