Thread: How can I manually remove apple apps!?

    Default How can I manually remove apple apps!?
    I have Discover and Files lite on my phone.
    Ever since the upgrade in the appstore came up and I upgraded, I got an error message that I have to do it through itunes.

    Ever since, I can't upgrade it, neither directly on my phone, neither through itunes.

    I can't uninstall it through itunes or delete it on my phone directly.

    I have several apps on my phone, but only this file sharing/storing apps have given me this trouble.

    If I try to delete it via iphonebrowser, I get an error message as well.

    It's not a superbig deal, but it annoys me, that I always have to click OK, when I sync my phone for music via itunes, when it says discover and files lite could not be upgraded.

    He said he can't delete it off his phone directly.... he might have to take it back to factory and then restore... if he wants it off from there bad enough...

    Exactly, but that's what I'm trying to avoid!

    Is there maybe another program like iphonebrowser, which might work better, because the iphonebrowser crashes a lot even when simply changing icons, might be the vista though.

    Did it myself! You guys suck! LOL! Just kidding!

    If interested: iphonebrowser doesn't work.

    So, Open SSH via Cydia, download WinSPC, then in root go to users and then applications, click on the folders with the weird names (485DGF748DGYE47) and inside it will tell you like pandora.app for example, simply delete entire folder where the .app file is in.

    Is there any reason you repeated the second post in this thread? Do you want the third post repeated as well?
