These conditions are very nasty.  But I want to make sure
nothing is slipping through a crack.

1. Is this correct?

2. Can anyone who has an iMonsteer install popcorn in this way?

3. What else does a person have to do install popcorn in this way?

4. Does the user installing it need a developer certificate?

5. Is the binary in that web site signed with someone's developer certificate?

6. Does Apple forbid others to redistribute that binary?
