    Default App to delete native apps???
    I don't use or ever need an app like stocks etc. Is there an app that removes them?

    I searched on here and googled it. On google all I found was an article about a disgruntled iPhone owner and native apps.

    Thanks!

    In SBSetting's "More" option, there's a menu at the bottom of the list called "Hide icons". Here you can turn off the icon showing for Apple apps. From what I heard though it's not recommended for some reason. I've never done it personally, but that's where you'd find it. If you don't want to take any risks I'd suggest hiding them in folders.

    Thanks fore the heads up on the risk aspects. I would just like to delete them. Period. Although hiding would be ok too.

    Sucks the sbSetting function could make it unstable.

    Hide icons in SBS are fine. It's deleting them off your phone that's potentially harmful to the device. I've never had a problem when I hid icons. Worked so well I forgot those apps even existed.

    I can confirm hiding icons isn't a problem, never had any issues. One of the first things I do after a jailbreak is to hide Weather, Stocks, iTunes, Contacts (it's already in the phone app) and Messages (I use iRealSMS).

    Talking Delete native apps on jailbroken iPhone
    Go to cydia, install iFile, go to />Applications and find the app you want to delete. Hit Edit (in the top right corner), select the app, and hit the trash can on the bottom of the screen. Respring and you're done. hope this helped!
    P.S. This permanently deletes the app, so be sure you want it gone.
