  • 'RespringCacheFix' Cleans Junk Files Created By Resprings in iOS 6.1


    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 wonít 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 hasnít had any significant testing, however weíve 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 Petrichís beta repository by following the steps below:

    • tap on the Manage tab
    • tap on the Sources button
    • tap on the Edit button
    • tap on the Add button
    • enter the following URL and then tap Add Source:

    PHP Code:

    Name: RespringCacheFix
    Price: FREE
    Version: 0.1
    Requirements: iOS 6.1

      This app was causing my iPhone 5 6.1 to randomly crash the springboard, and sometimes it would not reboot. Finally, I narrowed it down to this tweak. Watching it in Cydia to wait for an update that is less buggy. Need my phone to function reliably!
      use iCleaner and run it once a week or once a month depending on how much you tweak or respring.. safe for me on iphone5 6.1evaded

      Wondering the same thing. Did the 6.1.1 on my iPhone 4S/ jailbroke worked fine. Just need to know about this tweak.

      Is 6.1.2 still getting cluttered with these temporary files after a respring? If so is this tweak still a good fix??

      RespringCacheFix version 0.2 released to Support cleaning additional cache files (those that are created if you have emoji in an app or folder title).

      It is not. Doesn't do anything in iOS 7.
