    I copied LaunchDaemons file to my computer for a backup but instead of deleting the files from the iPhone i just renamed them with i file( put a 1 in front of the file names) and that way i can put them back into use if i need to. Oh and im getting 167MB of free ram now (3GS). But without the daemons running in the background it also frees up the proc to run a little faster. Will deleting language files help a lot? From what i have read it is best to only delete the ones from the applications files. Is that true?
    If anything was usefull a thanks would be great!

    ^ deleting the LPS will help speed it up even more. You should be able to hit 175

    Just do the application ones first, then see how it is.
    If you feel confident enough, do all of them.

    So you are saying not even 1MB has increased in your case?
    Did you also reboot the phone BEFORE and AFTER to compare the results?

    On a side note, you have a 3GS. You might not notice a dramatic speed up but I'm sure us 2G/3G users will.

    well, i did this and the language packs, and noticed a huge improvement in performance. then today i turned it off for school ( i know, who turns their phone off for school?) anyway, i did, and i turned it back on, it boots, goes to a black screen, then tries to boot all over again after a few minutes. i guess i deleted something i shouldnt have, but after replacing the launchdaemons folder with my backup, still the same problem. that must mean i deleted a .lproj i shouldnt have. guess its time for a restore.... really wish i didnt have to do this.

    As Stealth said, did you run the script or did you manually delete the language files?

    i went manually... you have to watch it b/c in about 6 folders they stuck "Support" files and in about three there is another file stuck in the mix. Meh, i know i deleted one in /SYSTEM/LIBRAY/FRAMEWORKS/addressbookui.framework and my phone still works just fine.


    edit: how the f do i turn off the stupid pop up for facebook... yeah im dumb and it locks up my computer and/or doesnt post b/c of that and im pulling my hair out trying to figure out where and why i did that.

    Hey guys just wanted to report my findings! I'm using a 3GS on 3.0.1!

    Ok so i deleted most of the "safe to delete" deamons from the guide then rebooted, before reboot 159mb free ram after reboot 161mb free ram! This wasn't enough of course lol so i then decided to delete Every language pack in the phone other than english/en using ifile, it took me over an hour and trust me if there was a lproj that wasn't english on this phone AnyWhere, theres not now! Free ram after several reboots still 161mb!

    Then after realising this isn't that effective on a 3GS (unless you delete system heavy processes that will in turn fudge your phone up and defeat the object of having it in the first place) i deleted the modded "launch daemons" folder and restored the original (backup) rebooted and guess how much free ram i had now... 164mb

    I'm not saying this doesn't work or it does i'm just reporting my findings on a 3GS... Hope it helps

    Matt

    I wished I'd have checked my exact stats as well, but I'm pretty sure I'm w/you from what I remember. Prolly a meg or two.

    Great info for the "older" guys thought.
