Pangu’s iOS 9.3.3 has already been a sensation even with translators toying with the English version of the app. If you’ve already followed the tutorial and installed the jailbreak, you might be worried of the Chinese annotated apps on your phone. The good thing is you can remove third-party PP app store to no ill effect.
This short tutorial will teach you how to get rid of the PP app without losing the Pangu app or your Cydia. This is crucial since you will need the two to do a semi-untethered boot.
Why remove it
It’s a rule that a jailbreaker should never keep anything they don’t need or actively use. Every tweak or jailbreak app you add to your iDevice is an additional potential of a hacker exploit. Keeping this number to the bare minimum will not only keep your phone safer but also improve on its performance.
Since this third-party app will automatically install regardless of whether you are suing the jailbreak tool for Windows or the online based solution, it is a good idea to follow these steps to stay safer.
How to Remove Third-Party PP App Store
Here are the steps to follow if you want to remove third-party PP app store.
- Open Cydia and navigate to the ‘Installed’ tab at the very bottom of the app
- Tap on ‘PP app’ for the list of installed packages (The app name begins with ‘PP’ followed by Chinese symbols)
- Tap on ‘Remove’ at the top right corner of your Cydia app
- A prompt will have you confirm the changes. Tap on the confirm button to initiate the uninstallation
- You’ll be presented with a black screen showing the progress. Once done, you can return to Cydia. The PP app store will be gone
Most security experts in the jailbreak world agree to the fact that getting rid of any jailbreak app or tweak you don’t need is wise – especially if it was installed as part of a package. This should be the first step you take after installing the Pangu iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak on your device. Just keep the Pangu boot app as you will need this for quick semi-untethers when you reboot.
