11-16-2010, 08:32 PM #1Uninstalling DEBs with Mobile Terminal?
So I currently have the Mobile Terminal iOS4 Beta installed, and I kinda goofed up and d/led a package with a dependency of, you guessed it, the old mobileterminal. Now, Cydia is stuck trying to install it and I can't do ANYTHING, even uninstall the package that had the dependency.
So, what I'm asking is, is there any way I can remove com.x#######.removeld with either Mobile Terminal iOS4 Beta OR iFile? Or any other way I can solve the problem?
Edit: Firmware = 4.0.

The reason why you are having this problem is because you are adding pirated source. Can't help you with that.

^Maybe true, but not guaranteed.
Crosseyes ... dpkg --help
to remove: dpkg -r xx.xx.xxx

Thank you so much MES.
Note: The package in question is NOT pirated, just outdated. That is where the problem was coming from.
Edit: is it normal to have to su root? It won't let me run dpkg on some (not all) packages as mobile. Hope I didn't screw something up...

Can you SSH into the device using something like PuTTY (or standard "ssh" command if you're on a Mac)? You can then run the dpkg command as if you were typing it into MobileTerminal.
