    The Mac App Store's security has been cracked. This means that, by installing a software called Kickback, you will be able to pirate any applications in the store. However, the crack will not be available until February 2011, according to Dissident:[/p]

    It was cracked a long time ago by Hackulous

    But also, it has no DRM.
    So...it really isn't cracking.

    EDIT: I was talking about kickback. It was announced during Meetulous '10

    Well damn, that didn't take very long did it!

    Off topic a little.

    Can the Mac app store be installed on a hackintosh?

    Ok then do you need a specific version of snow leopard to be able to install it?

    I'm thinking of building a hackintosh (for awhile now).
