If you have already jailbroken your iOS device using the PanGu iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak that was released yesterday, then you must immediately do the following to keep your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad from experiencing crashes, bugs etc. The PanGu jailbreak installs PPSync, which is similar to AppSync, but is very poorly written and packaged. Hence, it may cause system instability, app crashes, random resprings, disappearing SpringBoard icons and more.
iOS developer Karen Tsai recommends that you remove the PPSync Package and install AppSync Unified. She asks all those who have jailbroken using the PanGu jailbreak, to install her Complete PPSync Remover package from Cydia. To do this, you’ll need to add her custom source.
Open Cydia, tap on ‘Sources’, then tap ‘Edit’ and ‘Add’ the following repo:
Inside this repo, you’ll find a package called Complete PPSync Remover. Install this package and wait for your device to reboot.
Now, if you require the AppSync functionality, you can install something called AppSync Unified, which is an open source AppSync for iOS 5 – 7. You’ll find the package in her repo, just install and respring your device.
That’s it. You have successfully removed PPSync and replaced it with AppSync. This is mainly used to download and install pirated and cracked versions of apps. Nevertheless, it is highly recommended that you remove PPSync after jailbreaking.
