    just copy the folder to your desktop for a backup just incase something goes wrong. then delete the files right off your phone. no need to delete files from the folder you copied to your desktop then ssh back into your phone again. so just delete the files straight from your phone, not from the folder your copied to your desktop.

    I did this along with deleting the language files and I keep getting safe mode crashes. I restored the original daemons and no crashes. I only removed the safe ones from the first post. Anyone else having this problem?

    Awesome! I removed all of the dameons from the first list because I'm a pussy and don't want to take a chance removing anything else that could mess up my phone.

    It cleared up about 12 MB of ram. Thanks for the tips!

    I worked on deleting the daemons very carefully, check and double check. I went through the whole file tree and deleted all the language packs except English-US. I also deleted the extra keyboard layouts that were not needed.
    Before I started on a 3GS 32gb, I was getting 151mb at idle. I have seen an increase.
    When I free up memory through sbSetting, it will jump up to 172 to 175mb and then settle down about 165 to 168mb!
    My n00b advice is to take your time.

    I got bored and wrote a script that will walk people through disabling the "Safe", "Conditional" and "Jailbreak" daemons. It lists them one by one with jdys_1991's description and asks if you want to disable it and they are disabled by moving them to /var/mobile/LaunchDaemonsBackup. Don't know if anyone will find it useful, I was just bored. Heck, I copied half of it from my language pack script so I was bored and lazy. here ya go

    (EDIT: I did some very minor editing to the script to clean up one command and change a couple words of text. It still functions exactly the same, it's just slightly cleaner.)

    What is the _ncurse folder for???
    It has 20+ copies of the same folder in a descending tree.
    Doesn't expecting the unexpected make the unexpected become the expected?

    I'm sorry but I have no idea how to use it with Cyberduck. All I have is Linux and the only ssh program I've used is the command line. In general, you need to copy the text of the script, paste it into a file, put the file on the phone, make it executable and execute it.

    You can do it all on the phone with iFile and MobileTerminal. Copy the text of the script, create a new file with iFile in /var/mobile/, let's call the file "ld.sh". Open it, paste the script, save. To make it executable and execute it, open MobileTerminal and type: chmod 755 ld.sh && ./ld.sh

    I hope that helped instead of making it worse.

    Thanks so much I'm going to try the ifile method right now and report back if it works. God i hope it works. Can anyone confirm if this works on 3.1.2 3gs? And does this get rid of unnessisary language files 2?

    Since you seem so knowledgable about this... I always wondered... Can you use ssh as a means to backup an entire iphone including prefrences and cydia apps... like can I just download the entire / to my computer and then if i ever brick my phone or have to update firmware can I just reupload the entire / backup file that I downloaded before restoring? Because if this is possible it would save everyone so much time when updating firmware. (Im guessing there will be certain files that will have to be kept in order to keep the new firmware if you were updating)

    Edit: I added the file in ifile and pasted the script but when i went into terminal and typed: chmod 755 ld.sh && ./ld.sh it says "cannot access 'Id.sh' : No such file or directory" even though i did add the file. So i deleted the file in ifile just to be safe (but i wouldnt do anything if i had the file but didnt execute it anyways right?
