    It's not available any longer because Apple asked us to stop distributing it as a sideload app.

    Can you explain what developer agreement you agreed to? Do you have other legit apps that they could pull from the App Store for offering f.lux as sideload? Otherwise I don't understand what hold they have over you?



  • @lorna Is it still possible to obtain the iOS Sources elsewhere?

    @geoHeil if you find one, the accurate sha information is here: https://justgetflux.com/forum/topic/1267/sha-1-for-ios-sideload/2

    @SteveD We have millions of users on Mac OS we'd like to continue supporting, so we are motivated to follow the terms of the Xcode developer agreement.



  • @lorna : It is great to hear that you guys are motivated to follow the terms of Xcode Developer. I got the sideload app but did not put on my phone since I saw many complaints over the waking up screen problem. I then actually was able to install the deb file of the f.lux on cydia, and my phone is not jailbroken so I think that's why when I launched the app, it did not change the screen as intended at all. Location services was able to find my location but the gamma does not change. Does the flux app on cydia requires root access to change the screen color scheme? I got gamma thingy to work so i am not sure why the flux on cydia doesnt work

    Some software for jailbroken phones depends on having a jailbroken phone, so you probably shouldn't expect this to work. Hope we have a better answer for you in the future.



  • @lorna So the f.lux that you guys put up as slideload pre-packed is different from the f.lux available on cydia? How sad it is. If you could release the fix for the current slideloaded version on cydia, or a version that does not require root access on cydia that would be so great. Then Apple could not have complaint since this is depending on the free will of people to get apps from cydia
