    I was trying to jailbreak my iphone and must have downloaded a fake Cydia as it keeps asking me to download apps in order to get cydia. After I attempted to download 3 apps its contiunes to ask me to download just one more... So I started researching and come to find out it must be a fake.

    When I tried to delete the app and hold down the app to get the "X" to delete it there is no X to delete the app

    Can anyone please help me get rid of it!?

    The name of the app was iOSPangu

    in the directions it says download and open a free app to unlock cydia....

    now that I have my phone jailbroken the proper way now I have two cyida icons but one just takes me to the apps

    Please help!

    Restore to 8.4 and jailbreak again with TaiG or PP. if you don't understand, GOOGLE.....many tutorials around :)
    And hurry, 8.4 wont be signed by Apple for much long....

    The time you've spent messing with it you could have restored and re-jailbroke by now. Since 8.4 is still being signed you can still restore. People are giving you advise take it.

    What we are suggesting is to download the IPSW and do a total reinstall and wipe of the device. You can start by downloading the IPSW from here:

    https://ipsw.me

    Then you go to iTunes and (I only know how to do it on a Mac) hold down the options key and click restore point it to the IPSW file you downloaded. I would not restore the settings from a iTunes backup I would start fresh.

    Not to say that someone else may have a solution and say I'm crazy but this is what I would do.

    Edit:
    On windows hold the shift key and click restore.

    Just download Impactor from the Cydia store and use it to completely restore the phone back to 8.4 and then jailbreak again using the proper tool.
