    Do a complete restore? Plug it into iTunes and run the restore. That should erase it and drop a fresh OS on.

    Connect your Ipad and run Itunes. Right click on your Ipad and select "Transfer Purchases".

    This is exactly why I don't bother with Apple jailbreaks any more. If I wanted access to a world of crap I would have gone with Android and rooted it.

    That is a rather subjective thing though isn't it? There is a ton of crap available through Cydia, that is for sure. Then again there are some really cool apps and utilities. Much the same can be said about the official app store. For every great title there are nonsense apps to counter it. To each their own.

    Yeah I could say the same thing about any app store. Android, Apple Cydia. Like anything else you have to find the good ones.

    Also there alot of repositories you can ad that has some really great stuff.

    Right now Im loving snes emu for ipad with wii remote old school controller support!

    Frickin awesome!

    I don't see how ANYONE could call apps like SBSettings, Backgrounder, Circuitious, OpenSSH, MultiIconMover, and many more "rubbish" or "crap." Those are all free apps.

    I guess if I go to the app store and pay for iToilet for iPad ("22+ ultra-realistic toilet/bathroom sound effects") I will find the "good stuff." hahahahahaah

    That pretty much sums it up 100% for me as well.

    I wonder why anyone would feel the need to go through the trouble to actually remove the jailbreak once it is on the device? If you don't like Cydia or the apps available, just don't use it. It takes up very little space and doing a full restore is a huge PITA.

    Isn't it possible to do a "Erase all contents and settings" reset from the settings to simply remove the jailbreak? I mean I am interested to remove mine too but cant afford to restore the full firmware due to shaky and super slow Internet else it would take days to actually complete the restore.

    Thanks

    That will not remove the jailbreak.

    That sounds critical. Is there a way to check if jailbreak still exists when I don't have cydia?

    For all intents and purposes it does not matter. It would matter if you had to send or bring it in to Apple. With all the apps gone about the only thing that is different is that the file system is not sand-boxed.

    I honestly want it to be sandboxes again,kind of out of the box new with everything locked. Well we happen to have some high speed internet In our campus,I can actually download a copy of 3.2.2 ipsw but since all those pcs either run BSD or Linux so no way to do a restore there. I can bring that file to my pc but is it possible to do the restore with that downloaded ipsw from my pc?

    Thanks for your help so far.

    Yes you can use that ipsw.

    In iTunes shift-click restore (PC) or option-click restore (Mac). Point to the ipsw you downloaded and let it restore.

    Don't forget Farting Grandmas! Talk about a "gotta' have" app lmao
    Edit: The OP may be thinking that all the apps that show up in Cydia are physically stored on his device or something. It's not like they're taking up any space by just showing what's available to download.
