    I know many people before have had trouble because they have forgotten their AndroidLock sequence, my problem is different. I know my sequence however im bored of seeing the same AndroidLock everytime I unlock my Iphone so I want to remove it. I have literally looked through every package on Cydia and I simply can not find what I downloaded to get the Android Lock therefore I can not remove it! It isn't in Winterboard so I can't just turn it off and under settings it just gives me the option of changing the pattern. Any help will be greatly appreciated

    AndroidLock it;s should be under the bigboss repo it might be down right now I haven't tried. bigboss does some nice stuff but his repo goes down from time to time. usually no more then a few days. might be able to find another repo that has it.

    He's not looking to install it, he's looking to uninstall it.

    Unless OP has a corrupted Cydia database, the app should show under manage/packages even if the repo is down.

    Thats the thing! :confused: I looked all through the manage/packages section and there isn't anything even remotely linked to the AndroidLock!

    if I remember right androidlock is among apples settings with other jailbreak tools. pretty sure it's not with sbsettings.

    Damn this is frustrating :p I consider myself to be fairly competent with this kind of thing! What im trying to say is I have searched right through Cydia and its as if I never installed the bloody thing! None of the android lock packages have "modify" they only have "install" suggesting that I haven't downloaded it! But it must have come from somewhere!

    Well you said you look through the manage/packages so it sounded like you only look through the installed packages. I've never heard of it happening and never had this problem with it but perhaps installed through Rock? Though it shouldn't matter..

    Nope, i've only ever used Cydia! Is it possible that the package I downloaded ages ago has been deleted from Cydia and that is why I can not find it now? And if so what can I do in that situation?

    The package or repo doesn't need to still be up to see it in the installed packages section. I've never installed it but does it show a version is setting?1.2-2 is current. You could always try (at your own risk) to install over it but I'm not even sure that would work since it's not showing in the current packages.

    Re-install it then it should show up in Cydia, then un-install it.

    Hey how did you get yours to work? I downloaded mine off Cydia and I installed it from BigBoss' source but when I rebooted my phone, and went to Settings -> Androidlock, it was empty.

    I managed to get rid of it, I just downloaded another version off the sinful iPhone repo and then restarted and it was gone! Strange stuff! And for Rure I wouldn't recommend installing it as it's bloody hard to get rid of! But if you really want it, try a different version from a different repo. Thanks for your help dudes
