    Default removing cracked apps from ios7

    so i put ios 7 on my wifes ipad because i didnt wabt to give up my jailbreak n my phone and ipad. after i installed it i backed her ipad up on my comp and it synced all of my apps to her ipad (which is obnoxious in itself). [redacted]. the icons are blacked out and when i hit the x to get rid of them nothing happens. when i try resyncing w/my laptop (or select uninstall in itunes and sync) it says it's installing those apps but nothing on the ipad changes. anyone else experience this/figure out how to get rid of those apps? not a big deal, just curious so i thought i'd ask.

    my bad i didn't know, feel free to close the thread. for what it's worth i'm not promoting cracked apps/piracy but whether you talk about it or not that doesn't change the fact that it happens.

    I would just restore the device again

    Gotcha. This happened when I installed beta 4 so chances are she'll just have to deal with it until beta 5 comes out. It's weird because I get the X to delete them but nothing happens when I hit it. Not a big deal, asked more so out of curiosity than anything else.

    Guys...if you were jailbroken, you should have done a hard reset (as new) prior to installing any of the betas. I strongly advise you do that prior to continuing with the beta, or just go back to 6.x, since you obviously are not legitimate beta users.

    My wife's iPad was never jailbroken but I do appreciate the advice
