    When using cydelete to uninstall apps is it just as good as going into cydia and removing them that way?

    Does cydelete leave anything in the idevice that a normal uninstall wouldn't?

    Are there any draw backs to cydelete at all??

    A regural cydia uninstall is alot cleaner way to remove.
    But sometimes you dont have the option for example limerain.

    I thought limera1n came with it's own way to uninstall...

    I dont think that feature works yet, one of the many bugs in this limerain release.

    It works. The only thing I had to use CyDelete for was to remove old copies Intelliscreen and 3G Unrestrictor which AptBkup brought back for some reason. :confused:

    Cool, did you use the latest beta 4 version of limerain?
    I think the previous versions wouldnt uninstall.

    Why should this be true? Doesn't it just apt in the background?

    Incorrect! CyDelete uses the same command Cydia would use to delete an app. Remember, both are just GUI's to apt. I could do the same via the command line too...

    Interesting.
    I didn't think cydelete did all the cleanup with every file and directory removed like a cydia remove would.

    No, Cydia issues the same "dpkg" command that CyDelete would.

    When u unistall an app via Cydia it takes about 5-15seconds in some cases and shows a bunch of command lines (for lack of a better term) and then u have to hit "restart iPhone"

    When and where are these command lines and procedures happening when u use cydelete? Does it wait to do all that stuff until a power cycle is initiated?? Or does it just happen in the background and we can't see it?

    BIG freaking deal.... the jailbreak works just fine... isn't that what it's important? A manual cleanup? for us people that jailbreak that is a simple task to do compared to the jailbreak... Did you donate already?

    I have to give props to geohot... Weather his exploit was ready for last time and waited for this time, he did it a lot faster than a group of devs did.... (a day or so) how long did the devs took? Give credit where credit is due...

    No matter the drama... we have the jailbreak for the next generation device DONE at least and that is thanks to geohot too.

    Thanks to the Dev team and GEOHOT!

    All commands are run in the background by the Cydelete extension, which is hooked into Springboard. That's the beauty of MobileSubstrate: that it extends the functionality of native apps without altering their code.

    No because: One, I don't use Geohot stuff, Two I don't support ass hats, Three Egohot did not do the exploit thing in one or two days (it took him 5 months).

    Then and only then did he come out with a half assed solution.

    Actually, one of the reasons the latest version of Cydelete was created was because it was leaving some leftover files in the previous versions.
