    Hi

    I just jailbroken my iphone 3G (2.1 firmwire) using quickpwn and i noticed that the jailbreaking process installed cydia and installer on my iphone. What is the Installer for? I know cydia is the main app that ppl use to download stuff..and also to unlock the iphone when the dev team releases the software. Is Installer something similar to Cydia? Is there any reason why I should bother using Installer? If it's pointless, how do i uninstall it?

    Thanks

    :)

    Make a new firmware without Installer and restore from it.

    As the above poster said. Using Pwnage go into EXPERT mode and make a new Firmware. Make sure you go into Custom Packages and uncheck the Installer app. Leave Cydia there

    installer was the "installer" before cydia came around. Cydia is pretty much the main thing right now, installer is pretty much dead.

    You can re-jailbreak, or you can SSH and delete the icon.
