    Yeah, it’s definitively better to steal developers so they can’t be paid.

    The funny part of your news is that your site is full of ads.
    We should also disable those ones so you don’t get paid.

    Okay i have what i think needs to be done until “Step 2: Place the .deb file in /tmp folder.”

    What is the “/tmp folder”? I am using a mac, I assume that means temporary. But if i am doing all of this on my computer, what is the point if it does not link that info to my phone in any way?

      If you don’t understand step 2, maybe you shouldn’t be trying to do this…

      Aren’t you supposed to connect the iphone to your mac and browse the device for the folder?…

      actually, its the /tmp folder on your device. you can access it via ssh.
