In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to remove the unwanted third-party application store without getting rid of Cydia or the Pangu app that you need to boot semi-untethered.
Why to remove the third-party app store
The third-party app store that comes installed on many of these China-based jailbreaks has long been connected to the roots of app piracy, and you may also even end up installing an app that has malware built into it.
For this reason, it’s best to simply remove the third-party app store from your iOS device after you jailbreak it with the latest Pangu jailbreak tool for Windows, or from the web with a web-based jailbreak.
This third-party app store may be installed on your device whether you have jailbroken from a Windows PC, or if you followed the newer web-based jailbreak. So either way, it’s a good idea to look into this.
How to do it
If you want to remove that third-party app store, just to be on the safe side, then follow these steps:
1) Open Cydia from your Home screen and open the Installed tab at the bottom of the app.
2) Next, tap on the PP app store from the list of installed packages:
3) Now, tap on the Remove button at the top right of the Cydia app.
4) Another prompt will ask you to confirm the changes, so tap on the Confirm button:
5) A black screen appears with white text that goes through the removal process. When finished, tap on the Return to Cydia button:
Note: The PP app store should now be removed from your list of installed extensions:
If you check your Home screen, the third-party app store should be gone from there too:
And that’s all there is to it! You’ve now removed your PP third-party app store, but you still have Cydia and you still have the jailbreak app that you will use to boot up your semi-untethered jailbreak.
Removing the third-party app store from your jailbroken iOS 9.3.3 iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad is always a good idea when dealing with these jailbreaks. All you really ever need is Cydia, but in this case, you also need the booting app for the semi-untether.
