Why did hollr2099.net go down?
The administrator of hollr2099.net doesn’t want to continue any longer. She already announced this on Twitter a few days back.
I wasn’t able to ascertain the exact reason behind this fiasco as the administrator deleted all her Twitter tweets.
It went offline a couple of time during the past months only to reappear days later. However, this time the situation is different – the administrator has retired from the community altogether and has no desire to continue.
Therefore, the IPA library will now be offline permanently.
For the uninitiated, hollr2099 was a very popular IPA library that allowed users to download unsigned IPA files. The users could then install these IPA packages using Saurik’s Cydia Impactor utility.
Here are a few alternative IPA libraries that have a lot of apps.
Top 3 hollr2099.net Alternatives
iOS Ninja has a good library among other things. It also has firmware library, wallpapers section, and a jailbreak wizard. At the time of writing, it contains an extensive collection of 158 IPA files.
They are classified under the following sections –
- ++ Apps & Tweaks
- Screen Recorders
- Removed from App Store
iOS Haven is a newcomer on the sideloading scene. They have a good collection as well. Its main advantage is that it provides both signed and unsigned IPA files.
While their collection is not as big as iOS Ninja’s, it is certainly getting better.
When you download a signed IPA file, you don’t need to sideload it using Cydia Impactor. You simply need to trust its developer certificate and you are good to go.
3. App Installers
You can always use third-party app installers such as AppValley and TutuApp for downloading signed apps and games.
Here are a few tutorials to get you started.

Apart from IPA packages, it also provides firmware and jailbreak downloads.
