In case you are no longer willing to use an app from your iPhone you can easily remove it. All you have to do is hold press on the icon and choose the delete button when it appears. On the other hand, we can’t say the same about the process of uninstalling tweaks from a jailbroken iPhone. Those who have tried know what we are talking about.
A lot of tweaks can cause the device to work at lower level. The main issues are associated with a buggy performance, but this could lead to other unpleasant situations. The worst part is that jailbreak tweaks are strongly embedded in your device’s operating system and cannot be uninstalled immediately.
The situation is similar regardless of the mean used for installing them – Cydia or Sileo. In this case, you’ll have to access any of the sources for removing a tweak from jailbroken iPhones. Sileo allows users to uninstall several tweaks at the same time.
Next we will focus on the process of uninstalling tweaks from Sileo
The procedure is not very complicated. The first step is to open Sileo and select the Packages option from the bottom. Then, you’ll have to get to the page where all your tweaks and apps are installed. The next step is to scroll through the list, which is alphabetically organized, find the tweak you want to remove and then tap on it.
Once you’ve started, press the Modify category which can be found on the Details page and press the Uninstall button from the appearing menu. After this step, you will see a Queued card popping up close to the bottom and here you will find the tweak (also known as package) that wish to remove.
The final step is to tap or swipe across the Queued card for revealing it in full and choose the Confirm button for proceeding with deletion. Once you do this, Sileo will remove the tweak from your device. Wait a minute until the process is completed, then click on the Restart Springboard button when it’s done.
