    So I removed weekillbackground pro and all other notification center widgets. I was wondering if I can safely remove wee loader and customwidgeticons from Cydia? I'm trying to remove all excess things I do not need anymore. My battery life isn't the best and I think removing these mobile substrate addons might help since I'm not using anything that is dependant on them. Obviously don't want to mess anything up on my phone though.

    Thanks in advance!

    Cydia will automatically remove anything that is dependent on what YOU have selected to uninstall. It will also tell you right before you click confirm, what's being removed. Just look to see if it's got more than what you selected listed.

    Thanks, I just removed them and all seems okay.

    There are others I'm wondering about as well. Someone on here said when you remove winterboard you can remove pincrush and libhide as well. Do you know if those would be safe to remove? I'm not sure about the libhide because I use springtomize to hide icons and don't know if removing that would be wise. When I go to remove it there aren't any other dependencies that need to be removed, so I'm thinking it would be safe to remove it.

    If you add it to remove and cydia doesn't auto select other stuff then it's fine. Cydia won't let you remove a critical package without removing everything that depends on it.

    libhide is used by some other hacks.
    pin crush should be WB only (I believe)

    Well I removed weeloader, customwidgeticons, libhide, libstatusbar and pincrush. None of them had any other dependencies and I'm charging my phone now so hopefully today I'll be able to tell if removing a couple MS addons will help my battery life at all.
