    I always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something

    Well I understand the instructions.Set permissions,go and change.That's it really.I don't understand what I'm doing though.Like I know I'm deleting daemons to speed up my device.I understand that.I don't understand what the permissions do though.Am I still alright with that kind of knowledge?Also,do I delete or disable the daemons?

    Do you know HOW to set the permissions? If you know HOW to do all the stuff in there, it's fine.
    And delete them I think.. at least I did.

    No problems with you though right?And yes,I know how.The commands are:
    su root
    alpine
    chmod 755 /System/Library/LaunchDaemons

    Correct?

    I think that all this is a waste of time! It Does NOT work or have any improvement on a 3GS AT ALL and from what i'v heard from my friends and gf it doesn't do the 3G any favours either! If anything it slows it down...

    However deleting the language packs seemed to work quite well on my 3GS, nothing dramatic but did feel snapier as suggested!

    3G= Give it a go if you got time to waste but dont get your hopes up

    3GS= DONT BOTHER, trust me

    Peace

    I deleted all the safe ones and a few of the optional ones that I didn't need and now I'm at 45mb free when it was 55mb free before deleting them. Any ideas why? I'm going to restore the backed up file and try again, but I don't see where I could have messed up, its pretty straight forward.

    I did....twice...

    Ok, I tried again and this time only deleted the ones under the safe part and no conditional ones. Now its sitting at 50/51mb which is about the same as before anything was deleted. So i got no change out of it.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again. I don't notice an actual rise in the "amount" of free ram, but it does speed it up definitely. Having all the ram in the world won't do any good if it still goes slowly

    K I really want to try this but I'm having doubts.I've talked a to a C4iD member (they're app crackers for those who don't know) and she seems to have a pretty good knowledge of things.She advised against it,but then again I could use the extra RAM,and the speed.My ipods horrible laggy.What should I do?Also,is this the proper terminal command?

    su root
    alpine
    chmod 755 /System/Library/LaunchDaemons

    The folder path might not be exact,I don't have the best memory.But is that how it should be?

    I was under the impression that it did increase the amount of free ram. The first post says they got 61mb of free ram, implying that it did indeed go up. If the deleted launch daemons total 5mb, would that be 5mb less crap that gets loaded into ram? Sorry, I'm just curious to what exactly is going on.

    When I upgraded to 3.0 my phone got real laggy. I was hoping this would fix that, but on my phone the difference is barely noticeable. My girlfriends phone with jailbroken 2.2.1 still smokes mine.

    Incorrect.

    It depends how many Cydia apps you have installed and running in the background.

    I got an extra 17mb on my 3GS, and it got rid of the animation lag when opening/closing some apps such as Cydia.

    Did the language pack tweak and this, got a 3G and I'm well chuffed, snappier most definitely. Kudos dude!

    FOUND SOMETHING NEW!!!

    What I did was deleted some more crap from my phone. Especially from /System/Library/TextInput/
    I've Google'd to find out what those files are and found out that they are those "auto-correct dictionaries". Because I dont need all of them, I deleted all of them, EXCEPT three, English, German and Emoji.
    I kept English and German because I use both of them sometimes.
    And I kept Emoji because I dont really know what that is so, just in case lol.

    Anyway, after deleting those and re-spring'ing my phone, my root partition went from 91MB free to 140MB! That's 49MB on the small partition!

    Dont have any problems (as of yet).
    Definitely worth deleting if you're not using all 34 language dictionaries! :P
