    If you don't know what it is or didn't install it yourself, leave it alone.

    Ok thanks! Well I won't touch anything in expert mode because they may be important.

    Winterboard (and other tweaks) depend on libhide.
    One way to know if your iPhone needs it is to check before confirming the deletion of the tweak if there are other affected tweaks that will also delete.

    Libhide is a perfectly harmless support library. Even if it's an orphaned dependency, it's no harm to leave it. Unless it's being used by something, it won't even run. And it's tiny.

    True. . . true… yet even a grain of sand can irritate at the bottom of your sneakers.

    Well,thanks guys. Now I know that it is connected with my Winterboard so I won't remove it. Good that it is small.

    Exactly.
    It should go without saying but find something else to do instead of removing random stuff you don't know what they are or do.
    It wont turn out good and you might end up stuck restoring.
    Same goes to people that go on an ifile cleanup sweep and start removing files and folder left and right.
