    Default Deleting a App. the hard way.
    Ok I am old, but new at this stuff so please bare with me.
    I installed a game called Lights Off (somehow) and now can not seem to figure out how to delete it form my iPhone version 1.0.2.
    My iPhone is unlocked and jailbroken...

    I thought I either installed it via iBrickr, or the installer but neither will allow me to delete it from the phone.

    My question is when I go in and view the contents either with iBrickr, or WinSCP I can see the folder in the Applications folder called LightsOff but dont know if I can delete just hat folder or as in most files installed on a PC/MAC if it wrote to other directories folders.

    Can anyone please tell me how to delete it (all contents) and or if this is possible?
    What I dont what to do is delete the main app and create orphan files.

    Thank you

    Great thank you.
    This got me thinking I have SQUID on my iPhone but it really doesn't do much in respect to a file manager.

    Is there a app or file manager that actually lets you move, delete, rename, create as a stand alone?

    Thanks again

    Yup. MobileFinder is quite handy.
    Get "iPod & iTunes for Dummies", it'll change your life.

    You mean an iphone app? It's probably a lot easier and a lot safer just using something like WinSCP
