So I installed a custom pwned 2.0 iphone software that someone else made, because the WinPwn software is not out yet. Cydia came pre-installed on it, and I'm now noticing that there's a lot of packages installed that may just be useless. Things like "zip, unzip, tape archive, rsync". What I'm asking is basically, are these packages installed by default, or did the creator of the custom .ipsw decide to include them in when he pwned it?
Thanks!iPhone FW 2.2.1, Jailbroken and Unlocked!

DON'T delete anything...until you update Cydia. Turns out, it won't update, just a constantly re-springs.

I guess that's why they remove the packages from pwnage 2.01!
I just updated/added them in cydiahttp://jpassoc.com/x -- with free itunes under the puppy!

It's called patience. I don't see you making free apps to put on Cydia.

I was not able to upgrade them all at once, it just hung for ever, but it did work doing it one by one.

They all install WITH cydia.. Cydia uses them for installing packages.
Just leave them, we all have 'em.

Man, what a waste. It shows 277MBs used for OTHER files. I mean this is a CLEAN iPhone 2.0 with Cydia. I didnt install anything extra. Does this seem off and shall I re-package my 2.0FW?

wow really, well no i didnt install anything from app store. Anyway just downgraded to 1.1.4. My Edge wasnt working properly. Tried everything. Used Apple enterprise config utility but nothing. Anyway, 2.0 is nice and all but i check over 200 emails a day and not having edge working 100 percent is no good for me.
