Thread: how to uninstall installer??
08-31-2008, 11:05 AM #1how to uninstall installer??
After this whole fiasco with Kate and Winterboard I have decided that I dont even want to deal with RipDev anymore. I want to fully uninstall installer. I have deleted Installer.app from the Applications folder but was wondering if Installer has bits and peaces in other areas. Dose anyone know or is that it. I could always make a new ipsw without installer in it but that sounds a lot harder (having to reinstall all my software and tweaks) than findingwhere installer lives. Thanks for your help.

I am also trying to uninstall installer.
It's never worked, and offers nothing that Cydia can't satisfy.
I deleted the installer.app contents and folder, and now I can't get my phone to boot up.
It was a pain getting it working in the first place, now i can't get rid of it.
I'll be happy once it's finally gone.
Up until now, i was happy to have 2 sources for apps, now I just think that installer is a collosal waste of resources, in every way.
~~I had to do a full restore and backup, because of that POS.
its better to never have it on your phone in the first place.
so jailbreak without it if you want to avoid wasting your time.
