    Hi. I am selling my iPad 1. Jailbroken cydia installed. I have purchased items through cydia. How do I disable so that the new owner will not have access to already purchased apps? Thanks

    AFAIK, Jay does not offer this service for Cydia, but that info may be out of date. There is certainly no facility in the app or associated website to manage your devices.

    I suggest you contact him directly via email at - saurik@saurik.com

    Am I wrong in thinking you can click on 'installed' then each item, click on 'modify' then 'remove'

    The only bit you would need to sort out is the bank account that is linked to your Cydia account.....I know it's password protected but that's never safe!!

    Doesn't work like that Rambler. The UDID of your device is stored on Cydia servers against your account. Even if you do a fresh restore of IOS and never provide your Google or FaceBook ID to Cydia on a clean install, if it recognises your UDID it will allow you to restore your previous purchases. Of course you cant buy anything else unless you log in, but you can install what you own without providing your details. It is a bit of a loophole which is balanced with the convenience factor for the many more people that will never sell on their devices...
