    no need, those who maintain the source can take down any malicious sources. there was a case like the jmwiki it was taken down from them and those who distribute blaze ultimate as well as allipodhax's, that is where i get all my sources

    I wouldn't worry about them, i have never worried and have installed heaps of stuff from sources i diddn't know (some of them were japanese writing) and never got a virus. Worst thing that happens is you have to restore

    like skinny says if a package messes up your iPot all you have to do is restore and just install blaze ultimate source, it installs all non-malicious packages

    go into the installer and click the uninstall tab and choose whichever app you wanna uninstall.
