How to Stop iOS 8 Apps from Being Deleted by Accident [Jailbreak Tweak]

There are a lot of useful Cydia tweaks for iOS to prevent apps from being deleted on your iPhone. We’ll talk about one of them. Use it on iOS 8 iPhone only if you are jailbroken which is now possible only on versions up to 8.1.2. The latest iOS 8.1.3 release has patched the exploits used in TaiG and PP jailbreak so these users can either downgrade to iOS 8.1.2 or wait till a new solution is found by developers.

The problem with iOS apps deleted by accident is not new. Users who have kids are often at high risk of losing some of their applications by mistake. Even older iDevice owners can remove an app unintentionally and in order to not regret such things and prevent accidental app deletion on iPhone you can use the tweak called UninstallNever.

How to Protect iPhone Apps from Deleting

Step 1. The app is free and you can download UninstallNever on Cydia Big Boss repo. Install it on the iOS 7 or iOS 8 device.

Step 2. This program is rather simple. It comes without any built-in settings. There is nothing to configure.

Step 3. But after you have this tweak on your iPhone and you click – hold your app icon and make it enter into wiggle mode you will see no ‘x’ near this app. You cannot remove it because with UninstallNever program the ‘x’ button doen’s appear and you cannot delete applications and games once they are in the wiggle mode.

Step 4. The only problem with this tweak is that you cannot disable it. The only thing you can do is uninstall it right from Cydia.
