11-14-2007, 07:08 AM #24Remove Nullriver Installer v3 w/o restore?
Is there not a way to remove the Nullriver software v3 without a complete restore? I cannot believe there would be no means of removing the software without doing a complete restore. When I navigate to Uninstall I only have the option to Reinstall the Installer, not Uninstall ...
Someone please help! My phone will not restore and I want to have it serviced but I want that software off before I take it to Apple otherwise I might be turned away.

The fact that this stuff is left behind has nothing to do with Installer.app and everything to do with how the uninstall section of each individual package's plist is written. If the person who writes it doesn't remove it, it gets left behind.
I am guilty of this. Why? I was explicitly told, by Nullriver, to leave this stuff behind when uninstalling a package. I disagreed, as it's my belief that uninstalling a package should leave the device as though the package had never been installed. Nullriver insisted that computer apps don't delete user data and settings when they are uninstalled and that we should follow that model on the iPhone/iPod Touch.
Another item to consider is that developers always tell the packager what to install and where, but they rarely, if ever, tell us exactly what files and directories are created by their app, so that we could remove them if we wanted to.
Users are fickle. I can easily see them screaming at me for deleting their un-backed-up settings and data.
What's a packager to do?
I continue to believe that "uninstalled" should mean just that - that 100% of the app is gone, including anything created by it. I also believe that both Installer.app and the BSD Subsystem should be uninstallable. Nullriver refuses to do that for Installer.app, saying that it would confuse users and cause problems. I have requested, many times, that they make BSD Subsystem uninstallable and they eventually agreed, but never followed through with that or the update to it that they said was coming (they haven't done anything in some time now, actually, and seem rather irrelevant these days, sadly).

So.. are you guys saying... if I fully restore my iphone, there are still files that are left there?

restore is something similar to full cleaning.
all data etc will be lost
