Be careful respringing that iOS 6.1 jailbroken device too many times in a row. According to iOS hacker and developer Ryan Petrich, every time you respring that iOS 6.1 device, a lot of temporary files are created that waste a ton of space. Reboots won’t do the same thing, but resprings are easier and more convenient than reboots, so many of us do that more often than reboot.
If you want to keep respringing your iOS 6.1 device without having to worry about the build up of these irritating temporary files, Ryan has created a new free jailbreak tweak dubbed RespringCacheFix that will automatically get rid of these junk files for you after each respring on iOS 6.1.
Ryan warns that the package is still in beta and hasn’t had any significant testing, however we’ve been using it all day on more than one iOS 6.1 jailbroken device (iPhone 5 included) and nothing abnormal has happened.
If you want to add RespringCacheFix to your jailbroken iOS 6.1 device, add Ryan Petrich’s beta repository by following the steps below:
