I have pwned my iphone and I notice that there are a lot of apps within cydia that are pre-installed.
Does anyone know the apps that I can SAFELY uninstall from cydia? I am trying to conserve as much battery power as possible. Thanks!

Apps installed by Cydia do not use power all by themselves. They do use up a minute amount of disk space which you can circumvent by using Expert Mode in Pwnage Tool 2.0. Default partition size is 500 MB, I made mine 750 MB and it has lots free for swap or whatever the phone needs. Did this on both my first gen and my 3G phone.
Leave the pre-installed Cydia stuff alone and if it informs you of updates for things, by all means do them. Once it says Complete at the top, you can tap the Close Window button and bottom then press the Home button, let it respring and you're good to go.I came, I saw, I forgot what the hell I was there for.

Same question as scrutman.
It's great that Cydia was available to unlock my phone which someone upgraded to 2.0, but Cydia installs dozzzzzzzzens of apps without user having choices at install.
My brother will be using the phone abroad and I want minimum apps on phone so that he can install other whan available.
What can I remove or what should I not remove.
Thanks in advance

All those apps are part of the BSD sub-system.
You really don't want to remove any of them.
But if you must.
You absolutely can not remove these if you expect Cydia to work.

Hardly a show stopper for a multi-gigabyte device.
