A Chinese group which has made it its mission to take a bite out of Apple’s iTunes revenue share is at it again, launching a full web version of its iOS app store jam-packed with pirated content.

Would you trust a Chinese website to offer you dodgy pirated apps to download and put on your phone?

Even if they claim it does not require you to jailbreak it.

If you do, I've got a great deal, fake gold, buy it here....... Roll up roll up...

I can access it, you just can't download the software yet, no English version. And to make matters worse the software is Windows only!

This approach has been possible for ages - see also instasign and zeousmos....far fewer people are jailbreaking now in China [the same developers also do China's most popular jailbreaks].

It's simple piracy, whereas the 'jailbreaking industry' is legal and exists as much to sell software Apple don't allow - it's worth millions - jailbreaking itself is no earner....
