So, as some of you might know I had a few files up in the downloads for nulled copies of the coming IPS4!

So basically, all you have to do is replace your init.php file contents with this (the whole thing):

Then, upload it and you are set to go. When prompted for a license, enter whatever you want. And this works, simply because your board will think you are using the pre-release key and never check if it's real. And as long as IPS doesn't update this file, this should work on any and all releases for IPS4.

Enjoy! If theres any problem let me know below i'll help you :8

init.php is the only file that must be modified.. any other files modified of the instalation kit mean a non original version!

When you edit init.php you just bypass license key request and you do not nulling IPS.
Nulling means removing any callback from scrips.If you want to null, you must remove callback from files like spam.php and etc.

as long as you can bypass the licence key request, the script works ok.. things with callbacks are relative as importance.

This was for the pre-relases, and betas.  More stuff has changed, and this no longer applies.  As it was stated above, removing links back to IPS and what not, that would allow them to know where you are hosting, that would be nulling.  Also, you can easily bypass the license in the retail versions, but it will throw up sections of warnings.  Those can be removed by removing the <div> </div> tags in certain areas of the theme.xml file.

@thehunters, what you are referring to is the md5 checks that allow IPS to know the files have been modified.  As stated on their Release Notes under version 4.0.3 section....
"The support tool in the AdminCP will now do MD5 checksum on all PHP files on the system. This allows the system to detect any modified PHP files which is useful both for support and for security. The master checksum values are fetched remotely from IPS to ensure the list is not tampered with locally. "
This is handled in a file called support.php under /applications/core/modules/admin/support/support.php under an area that says
 * Step 2: Self Service - md5sum Checker.
You could use the support.php file from 4.0.2 to take care of this minor problem :8

Sorry, but I've saw a lot of scripts, let's say "nulled"...... , but inside you can find some kind of drawing in licence file, or a fake copyright in footer. I don't like that. I like clean codes, free.. nulled.. anyway.. but clean.

What do you mean removed? If someone reports you to IPB that you are using a Nulled Version of IPB software theres a chance IPB can take you down Meh

IPS won't do shit if your community is new or it does not have a lot of members, reason being it would cost them more to taken down your website which is not worth it. If you have a lot content and members and IPS see that you can afford the licence, they will take down your site, unless you use offshore hosting, then IPS can't do shitall.
