    What if SSH-ing and deleting is not enough? I mean, I'm a perfectionist and I'd like to remove everything Cydia has installed (actually, it came installed together with some apps when I used iLiberty for unlocking). I prefer Installer ad prefer to have a control over installed stuff (I hate doubling stuff, and Installer works fine for me).

    For me, cydia has been a stable, usable and fully open-source package manager and 'nix subsystem. It has solved all of the problems I had that were due to the shoddy (but usable, to be fair) implementation of the BSD subsystem and it is happy to coexist with the buggy, closed-source installer. As soon as the last few games that I manage through installer make it over to STE's cydia source, I'll be losing installer for good.

    As for cydia, I don't know how to uninstall it. Nor do I care to find out.
