As far as I know it's very complicated, it may be better to restore, or just live with it.

Serious?? I've got too much to lose to do a restore. I've never even used it.

Stupid Cydia.

Stupid Cydia.
1. Make a list of programs you have installed through Installer.app (obviously leave out Cydia.)
2. Sync your phone with iPhoto and then iTunes.
3. Restore with iTunes and make sure you have it restore with your most recent restore point.
4. Jailbreak again.
5. Install all programs on the list you made in step one.

Bam! Back to how it was. iTunes saves all the info from your custom apps as well as your stock apps. It will be back how it was exactly the same, even text messages and call logs and everything.

You won't lose anything.

There's allot more to Cydia than just the app itself.

You could do what an above poster said and hide it using an application called "Poof".

Does this also delete the Cydia software updates? I tried restoring the iPhone then jailbreaking it again, but somehow I'm pretty sure the updates is still there!! Cydia updates, that slow my iPhone down!!

Haha, EXACTLY! It doesn't make sense. I use Cydia over Installer because installer seems too cheesy for me, but I would never say "it slows down the fon LOLZrofl" It's stupid to assume that a small app, not running in background, would have any effect, whatsoever on performance.

Silly.

The irony, of course, being that you'll need Cydia to get poof

Removing Cydia is one of the dumbest things you can do. If you don't know how to use it, hide it with SBSettings. If you want to delete it just install Cydelete and delete Cydia like a regular app.

Cool Not complicated

[i do not want to restore my iphone to te newest update, because it would make my phone incapable of jailbreaking, but i have an appointment with the iStore, so i need my Cydia to temporarily not by on my iPhone, as to not void my warranty]

To remove Cydia from your iPhone, simply go into the 'Manage' in your Cydia store,
Packages
( make sure the top right of your screen confirms you're in "expert", instead of "simple")
And delete the "Cydia installer"!

Or just start deleting from the top, one by one, if you feel like reatarting your springboard a million times.

***BUT** once u delete Cydia, you will not be able to delete SOME of it's components (example: "Manual correct pro", "iNo Rotate", "Fastcopy". so delete the settin option guys first)

this does not unjailbreak your phone, but i notice IMMEDIATE speed after doing this, since it removed my winterboard/themes.
The only true ways of removing a jailbreak is by updating to the newest software in iTunes, or restoring your phone, and reselecting the music/photos/apps and such that you want to sync your device to.
