    When you uninstall something from a pc you usually have to delete registries etc as hidden files belonging to the unistalled programme remain. Is this the same with the iPod?? Or when deleting an app EVERYTHING associated with that app is deleted automatically??

    cydia apps are stored on /var/stash/Applications.xxxx
    appstore apps are stored on/var/mobile/Applications (please bear in mind that the app store apps hav not go the names on the folders, instead its letters and numbers (Md5 Checksum? I have no idea)

    I have them on bookmarks in iFile

    If you delete a folder under the /var/stash/Applications.xxxx does that delete all of the app or does it leave pieces other places?

    I upgraded and then jailbroke and now all my app-store apps are hidden. They still run if I find them, but the icons are gone. Was going to just delete the folders and re-install them.

    If you want to know what AppStore Apps are located where install AppLink from Cydia.
