    idk, that happened to me too. i think its kinda like a system control hacking app. you could just poof it away with "Poof" as part of SB Settings, or maybe uninstall it through "Manage" in cydia

    Terminal is just a console type application, like cmd on windows. If its been installed alongside another application that means that particular application needs it to run. Never heard of terminal being a required app though.

    I wouldn't uninstall it. It's got a few useful applications. Just hide the icon in spring board.

    If you uninstall it all the apps that need it will be uninstalled or will just stop working. Just poof it.
