And there it is!

Hugs98 is now available for installation on the iphone/ipod touch.

It is being served through the community sources at cydia, one the most
"official" unofficial installers for pwnaged iphone/ipods. That means that
if you have cydia already installed, if you look for hugs98 in the search
tab, it will be there waiting for you.

Just install hugs98 and/or hugs98-packages (for full library support), open
a terminal console and run 'hugs', everything should be familiar from now

If not, just install cydia, and hugs98 is included in the default source

And, for those brave of you, here are the packages for own/custom

com.wordpress.argaldo.hugs98 (interpreter and minimal packages) ->

com.wordpress.argaldo.hugs98-packages (full library support) ->
