AirPrint Hackivator tool partially forced offline by Apple

AirPrint Hackivator tool partially forced offline by Apple

Remember when last week you came to know about AirPrint Hackivator, the software that allowed you to print using shared printers running at OS X- directly from iDevices? Apple has requested the removal of its earlier versions.

The developer explains that while he was working on his next project (VPN Hacktivator), he got a mail from omm.com for Apple, telling him to take down the pages of AirPrint Hacktivator.

Apart from that, he told that he has removed 10.6.5 beta files from version 1.7 of the app resource folder. About version 1.7, the only thing that was required to make AirPrint work well was just a single line of code.

Now version 1.7.1 has injected a single line in the present CUPS config file, and it does not depend in any form, shape or way, on 10.6.5 beta files. Version 1.7, however, did contain some leftover files.

And since this version is not having any proprietary Apple code now, he is hopeful that Apple wouldn’t have any problem as he can now distribute this software. This tool is absolutely free of charge and provides similar results, as some commercial apps like Printopia.
