How to fix some mysterious problems.

At some point in 2011 when I was on a version of ios 4-5 (can't recall exact ver.), I downloaded an app on my 3GS called Maiyo TV through Cydia. The app was supposed to have some live tv streams, but never functioned for me. I tried to delete the package though cydia and was left with an icon still on the sb. I progressed from my 3GS, to a 4,4s, and now a 5 losing and regaining a jailbreak over the years, and all the while preserving my original backup( texts, contacts, settings,etc). Despite losing a jailbreak on various versions, and moving on to 3 different devices, I still have a non functioning cydia that will open and run on my sb...I'm on ios 6.1 on an unjailbroken iPhone 5

Any insight to this?

I found a few threads of others experiencing the same quirk but couldn't find much as far as a cause or working solution? I also thought that their could be an off chance that this bizarre anomaly could have some potential for use in a future jailbreak...? (I didn't comment in or bump the below thread, so I know this isn't unique)

*non functioning cydia app

Also wanted to add that I can hold down this app icon, and delete like a regular app, turn my phone on and off, and it will reappear

after a lot of time trying to remove maiyo tv, i managed to do it a few minuts ago using ifunbox : locate the webb app and erase it. i changed permissions to mobile/mobile & 0777 don't know if it helps.
