    1 get firefox
    2 get user agent switcher addon
    3 add a new agent with CFNetwork/522.11.3 as the user agent
    4 switch to that user agent (makes repos think ur viewing from installer, some repos like ripdev can only be viewed from installer)
    5 go to the repo with the app you want to remove eg. itoday kate
    6 look at the xml the string remove path mean remove whatever it says, exec means execute a command, copypath means copy X to /folder/X

    This is only useful for some people that installed a app and it says main script extecution error in the middle but the app has appered on springboard (it's happened to me) and you want to remove it or your uninstalling kate, but don't want to mess up ur settings and SB icon layout by doing only the scripts that dont mess with your settings

    PM me screenies if you want me to add them on
    feel free to +rep if this helped u

    Thank you thank you.

    I had the worst time with itoday and skrewcommon files just knowing that it was that easy to remove them is great.

    Much appreciated

    I Didn't quite follow that...

    I need some clarification on that walk through...

    what fields do I add the CFNetwork/522.11.3 into,
    and what is a repo?

    maybe dumb questions but I need to start somewhere, right now my iPod is freezing every 7 seconds and then bringing up the "Edit Home Screen" pop up. this all started after I installed Summer Board, so I'm trying to remove it. My only way in is ssh as my computer won't recognize it's plugged in.

    So any help would be nice, thanks.
