    You may want to use an app like iCleaner in Cydia once you remove it, tweaks/apps/themes always leave a residual cache. This tool will clean up the OS.

    ^Huh, I haven't had an issue from it. Oh well, live and learn. Perhaps since I am still on 5.0.1, don-no..............

    Yup, I had issues with iCleaner, made my iPod slower than it already was. Same for a lot of people.
    If my post was good, click the button in my post

    New to jailbreaking? Have a look at my Redsn0w Guide

    Icleaner rocks. Ive been using it from 5.0.1-5.1.1 and never had a single issue. It doesnt seem to have a significant impact on performance, although i do get satisfaction when that little popup appears telling me how much less junk is on my device

    Meh. I think most don't really understand how to use it in conjunction with terminal, although it was brought up that it slowed devices. Human error?

    More than 80% of people probably have never even heard of Terminal. The REAL jailbreakers know what Terminal is. I think it's human error.

    Yup, plenty of You Tube vids and tons of info on using it if you just do a simple search.

    What is Cydia showing you exactly? Does it seem to "queue up" the paid package? Try tapping "Modify" and "Remove" on that, then "Continue Queueing", go to the package you manually installed, and also tap "Modify" and "Remove".

    Or go to the package page for your manually-installed file, scroll down to "Installed Package", click "Filesystem Content", and make a note of those files so that you can delete them manually. The first way might be cleaner, but this would probably be OK too.

    And next time, it's probably best to stick to installing packages from the default repositories - if they're having server issues, just wait a few hours, refresh data, and try again. Many packages have complex package dependencies and conflicts, and the default repositories have this all configured correctly for you.

    He already forcibly removed the package. There's just leftover files from it since I don't think he actually did it in Cydia. He found a few files already and deleted them.
