Hi All,

The title pretty much says it all, how can i remove my cydia account from my old iphone because im selling it and i really dont want anyone else to use my purchases. some apps only give license per device and id rather it be mine.

Also how many iphones can i have with my cydia account on?

Thanks All

Why don't you restore and sell it? Let new owner jb by them self, since he is jailbreaker too.
