NOTE: I get absolutely nothing from people using Substrate (and this was true even before Apple finally managed to edge Cydia out as a viable store). I started working on updates to Substrate recently for iOS 14 (pushing 0.9.7102 a couple days after the first iOS 14 beta). In the process, I offered to just discontinue Substrate, as I heard that Substitute might be preferred by some people now, and I find the duplication of efforts a bit silly; however, I was told (by someone working on Substitute) that Substrate still had a place, and I determined most of what was wrong on iOS 14 was actually a bug in Apple's Objective-C runtime anyway, and so I figured "ok, I'll at least continue through iOS 14". (The update cycle on all of my projects is that I try to work on each of them, furiously, about once a year for a week or two, and then leave them in some stable place so I can do other projects furiously for the rest of the year; users like to judge me for this, but it is the reason I am able to dive deeply into so many projects, and I suggest they try it ;P).
In the process, I was shocked to learn--by way of people commenting on posts about my updates (the only posts I force myself to read, and which I agree I should also be avoiding ;P, but I take at least some responsibility to read if people say "this update was worse"... I dunno... it was probably a mistake)--that there were some pretty wide-spread bugs that I was not being told much about (and which I would myself not notice, as, as I mentioned in the 0.9.7104 changelog, I don't use jailbreaks anymore other than to do some very minimal tasks, due to a combination of wanting some space from a demanding userbase and having moral issues--largely surrounding harrassment and bullying, including sexism and outright cruelty--with supporting the work of some of the key developers in the current community... this is also why I don't participate in or often even read community forums, as many of the people are just too amoral for my sanity: "I actively praise anyone who gives me good software as if they are good people, and I actively hate on those who fail").
I say this, as some people have decided that I'm clearly only releasing updates to Substrate due to some kind of "competition". This fits neither the timing (which was very clearly coordinated with iOS 14) nor the incentives (as again: I get absolutely nothing from people using Substrate). It also doesn't fit my personality: I find the idea that developers in this community prefer to rebuild and "compete" rather than work together more than a bit abhorrent, and it is the reason why so many core projects (including this one) end up closed source: almost none of the open source projects ever get help :( they are instead forked by a hostile developer into an incompatible closed-source "alternative" that is billed as having a "better UI" or claims of "better battery life" and the community as a whole suffers due to the new regime; like, ask yourself why Substitute (sometimes considered a "competitor" to Substrate, though there is actually a lot of knowledge transfer... I'd say we work together, really) is now closed source?
Regardless, while I do have some moral issues with specific developers right now (which has nothing to do with the hostility mentioned in the previous paragraph, and is incredibly widespread... people, I think, like to simplify issues down to one person, but I don't even feel good using checkra1n and only "use" unc0ver :/ if I go into the extent of the problem, everyone will claim I am into "drama" and should stick to writing software... while I disagree with that attitude, I am spending my mental cycles fighting in local politics these days), I honestly don't care what hooking framework you use on your phones... as long as it is paired with a package manager (and I hear there are many these days) compatible with the federated repository ecosystem (as opposed to using some proprietary repository format, as was the case with Installer 2 or the original Rock Your Phone) and doesn't come with DRM (which was a goal of iMods, and is the reason why I was upset about Substitute). In fact, over the years, I've even found myself testing that Substrate is actively compatible with the likes of Rock Extensions and Mobile Enhancer ;P. Seriously: go uninstall Substrate... all it means to me is one less user I'm responsible for.
