    Default CyDelete = 100% Awsomeness
    Thank you Dustin Howett for creating what many of us have undoubtedly craved; a way to uninstall Cydia apps in the same fashion as that of the App store apps.

    You simply long press on your apps to get them to wiggle, and now Cydia apps have the X in the left hand corner. SHWWEEEET. Now we don't have to boot Cydia to get rid of apps that aren't tickling our fancies anymore!

    This handy dandy little mod just made Cydia even better than it was...I know...hard to believe!

    Nice. I often wished there was a "stop" button in Cydia to keep it from refreshing when all I wanted to do was uninstall an app.


    If I've helped you, you can help me by clicking on that Thanks button.

    I like it but was wondering something. When you uninstall some apps you are required to reboot, this does not happen with this, so is it uninstalling the entire app or just some of it??

    Good call brianmarocco, I'm not really sure. However, you can respring yourself if you'd like! We may be able to test this by looking at the size of the app in Cydia (it would only work with one several megabytes in size), deleting it from the spring board, and then looking at how much memory is available. I'll give it a go after a bit and post my findings!

    This is a good question. Is it a 'clean' uninstall?

    Yeah, that annoys me too. I never had it refresh on me before I upgrade to 2.2 though. Kinda OT, but anyone know why that is?

    But I love this new app, I finally can get rid of that folder I have for all those apps I was to lazy to uninstall.

    Well, I finally got home and had some time to play with this. It does a full clean uninstall. It runs a "process" screen, and does the cycle wheel just like it does in Cydia.

    I looked at my available memory (settings> General> About) and it was at "45 Mb". I installed Smart-EG, which put my memory at "40.4 Mb". I uninstalled using CyDelete, and it came right back to "45 Mb" without a respring!

    This app is a success!

    I did a test too and it worked beautifully. I love this app.

    Just noticed this post.Yes Ive been using for weeks now and works great.
    Its a must have and quicker than going in to Cydia and looking for the app then delete.

    I have a question about CyDelete. Can I use it to remove Rock Your Phone? When I hold down the app, it gives me the "x" to delete. Just curious. I want to remove RYP without restoring.
