just wanted to say thank you. This thread has restored the speed of my phone.
I deleted only the "SAFE" plist files and resprung. Went from 30-35mb free at all times to a pretty consistent 50mb free.
In addition, Cydia doesn't lock up/crash on me all the time anymore. It used to run at 9-10mb, now I run 20-21mb
The speed increase of the phone is amazing. this is truly something that should be done on all Jailbroke phones

Don't copy and paste just type it in thr hand. Your probably spacing it out wrong when pasting...
Let me know.
03-26-2010, 06:36 PM #308
Even when I was typing the address instead of copy/paste, I was getting the error message as shown in the screen shot, then followed by few more "smaller" error messages.But it worked despite the error message. Thanks!

Quick question regarding the insanelyiph0ne repo package RemoveLaunchDaemons, I successfully downloaded and installed it and immediately EVERYTHING was running so fast.
I have a 3G on 3.1.3 bb 4.26.08 using Ultrasn0w to unlock for TMo. Yeah I ended up having No Service or Searching all the time. And before I downloaded the package it was on full bars with E on. After installation all service and internet went kerplunk :P Basically I lost my unlock with this installed.
I have no problem with doing all of this manually which I am doing as of right now, I just wanted to know if anyone else got this and if it's a glitch maybe? Or was it just my phone...
*edit* once the package is removed I regain all service. I am doing this all manually I was just curious.

anyone see the text input files at /System/Library/TextInput ?
I popped into one (/System/Library/TextInput/TextInput_uk.bundle) and there's 2 files, one is 200+mb
There's gotta be about 30 language folders here. Any idea if they can be removed?
03-28-2010, 11:07 PM #311
Text input is safe to remove the ones you don't need. I keep en, es, and emoji.

does this really work?
i have just done the whole daemon deletion thing for the third time now, first time it super-lagged my phone and i was forced to restore. second time my phone would constantly crash native apps but not 3rd party, and this time i have no lag or crashing but my phone IS NOT FASTER!!! my phone still only runs around 42mb on springboard and when i open an app drops to like 7mb. the only app that doesnt go under 10 is youtube which stays at like 12-13mb...
i see this has worked for alot of people so i am not trying to be a troll and say this is a waste of time, but it really doesnt seem to work on my phone, sorry.

Another ''''safe'''' daemon to remove is :com.apple.mobile.obliteration.plist"
I've done some checking and found this daemon is associated with Settings/General/Passcode Lock/Erase Data and Settings/General/Reset/Erase All Content and Settings-- not the iPhone password. It's true purpose is to 'wipe' the file system. I don't know about you, but we have been advised if a system wipe is needed do an iTunes/ restore (much faster and safer). The program was disassembled by cronicdev and discussed (Feb 4, 2010) below:
MobileObliterator - chronicdev - Notes on Mobile Oblitorator - Project Hosting on Google Code
I would appreciate (and advise) additional testing and confirmations
FYI: My testing confirms the iPhone password works as expected with no adverse effects.

Thanks for the update Mes. I added com.apple.mobile.obliteration.plist to my list of deleted daemons and alls running well here. However, I'm not ready to test erasing my content

2 questions from a n00b - should this be done on an iPod touch, and what are the benefits of jailbreaking my iPt, if it can be done. Many thanks!
Is it worthwhile to get a 3G iPhone to use on t-mobile? it would be a second line for me, and I would need the data service more than anything else, mostly for gaming. (I use a 3G Blackberry Bold as my regular phone)

ok i deleted all the plist files in the first section and the phone is noticeably snappier thanks!
Available memory is now 156 MB

Dear god... BAD! BAD modders! Don't delete the LaunchDaemon plists; there's a proper way to disable the things. In a terminal:
sudo launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.Daemon.plist
I have safely disabled BTServer (since I don't use BlueTooth) with this method. As always, ymmv.
Edit: Nevermind, I was wrong. Upon reboot, this causes a huge delay for anything to do with the status bar, just as everyone else has previously observed. I'll look into it deeper.
And to restart one if you change your mind:
sudo launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.Daemon.plist
Deleting the plists is just insanity.
Oh, and there's likely no need to reboot with this method. I dunno for sure, though.

Hey all, I am a NOOB, as this will clearly show.
I have iFile on my iphone3G, and do not want to use the SSH because, well, I don`t have internet on my computer. Plus I don`t trust wireless.
Is there a wired way to do this? Like some kind of magical file viewer that I can just hook my iphone to the computer and whittle away at the files I don`t need? I am on Windows...big surprise there huh.
And where exactly do I go to ensure my permissions are set to 755???
I tried iFile but do not know how to download the entire daemon folder to my desktop....or check the magical permissions....or reupload the file if something does go terribly wrong.
I am clearly not native. I am sorry. Please help me?

Got a question:
those daemons are needed for crash reporter or syslog?
com.apple.ReportCrash.(Different Things).plist - There are 5 of these daemons, and they collect data about what caused a crash, what programs were running at the time, etc.
com.apple.CrashHouseKeeping.plist - Also deals with crashes.
com.apple.aslmanager.plist - This daemon manages system logs.
com.apple.syslogd.plist - Logs system events.
As I use that very often I would dare to keep them, if they are needed for that
