Removing unwanted apps from your iPhone is a simple matter. Hold down the icon of an app and click the "Delete" button as soon as it appears. Unfortunately, that can not be said when it comes to uninstalling tweaks from a jailbroken iPhone.
Many tweaks are not very sophisticated and can lead to faulty performance. Similar to popular iOS apps such as Safari and Photos, jailbreak optimizations that you have installed with Cydia or Sileo are integrated into the operating system of your iPhone and can not be uninstalled by conventional means. Therefore, you must go through either Cydia or Sileo if you want to remove a tweak from your device.
Removing Sileo Tweaks
If you're using Cydia, read our Uninstall Tweaks Guide in Cydia. If you prefer Sileo over Cydia, open Sileo and select "Packages" below to go to the page listing all the optimizations and apps currently installed on your iPhone.
From there you have various options to search for Sileo the optimization you want to uninstall. You can either enter the destination optimization in the search box at the top of the page, scroll through the alphabetical list or sort the list by the newest by tapping "Name" in the top right corner of the list and selecting "Date". "Once you've found the tweak, tap it.
Now tap" Change "on the click On the Details page of the app, click "Uninstall." A "Queued" card will appear at the bottom containing the package to be removed (also called Tweak).
To remove the tweak either tap the "Queue" button or swipe over the "Queue" card to see it completely, then select "Confirm" to continue deleting, and Sileo will now remove the tweak from your iPhone So, wait a moment for the process to complete and click "Restart Springboard" when the uninstall of the tweak is complete.
The good thing about the "Queue" process is that you can actually queue several tweaks to uninstall them at the same time as GIF below.
After re-launching your iPhone, you'll see that your Home screen or Settings app is free of unwanted or outdated tweaks that may conflict with iOS. It's worth noting that you can use Sileo to remove jailbreak tweaks or packages even if you originally installed them through Cydia (and you can remove Sileo tweaks with Cydia).
