Thread: Cydia Applications - What can be removed?

    Default Cydia Applications - What can be removed?
    Hi all,

    just upgraded to version 2.0 that's packaged with Cydia.

    Looks as tho theres a heap of stuff already installed with it as it's telling me I need to upgrade a bunch of them.

    What can actually be removed? There's heaps of stuff, from Tape archive makers to pico clones....

    anybody else got all this crap on there upgrade's aswell?

    "there upgrade's aswell?"

    3 errors in 3 words. neat

    You can remove tape, nano ("pico" clone) and other non-essential stuff. Why bother though? CYDIA doesn't use much space. Read Bringing Debian APT to the iPhone - Jay Freeman (saurik)

    i'd leave them all

    seems more it points out whats on ur phone. it even points out ur firmware file and gives you the option to remove it. just leave that stuff. if ur phone works leave it. you're only setting yourself up for one of them "what did i do, how do i fix this" threads
    1.1.1>1.1.2>1.1.4>2.0>2.1>2.2>3.1>3.1.2 blackra1n'd

    waitin on my white iphone 4
