    the problem with this script is you will delete all language packs called english.lproj which are inportant, too arent they?

    No volunteers. Oh well, I'm pretty sure this is foolproof. Use it if you want, don't if you don't. Don't knock my code, I tried to keep it simple, restricted to basic tools, and verbose.

    Tech support is limited to script problems, I can't help you get it on your phone or execute it.

    EDIT: hang on, this board screws up anything posted in code tags like "$var" and screwed up some of the variables in my script. I posted the script here

    Just wanted to say I ran the "remove everything thats not english" script, and it worked amazingly. In this post:

    Code:
    find / -type d -name "*.lproj" -not -iname "en*.lproj" -exec rm -rf {} ;
    Now, keep in mind the above command will run in your root ('/'), so your ENTIRE PHONE will be affected. So far *I* personally have not experienced any adverse effects, however, your mileage may vary.

    If you wish to run it in a specific directory, simply replace ('/') with the absolute pathname.
    Thank you very much!

    It feels like a new phone, and I can run Pandora in the background during normal use and not have it crash. And Navigon is much more stable now.

    it might be a little different; i have an ipod touch 2g; you might not have the same model. try it anyways its your best bet other than restoring though

    Hmm, I got
    Code:
    find: missing argument to '-exec'
    When running in mobile terminal

    This is the process I did:

    Code:
    iPhone:~ mobile$ login root
    Password: (entered password)
    iPhone:~ root# cd /
    iPhone:/ root# find / -type d -name "*.lproj" -not -iname "en*.lproj" -exec rm -rf {} ;
    find: missing argument to '-exec'
    Any suggestions?

    Also, is there any way to copy/paste in Terminal? I don't get the normal pop up boxes...

    Edit:

    Ok, it appears there needs to be a back slash '\' in this code on Mobile Terminal, before the ';'.

    Code:
    find / -type d -name "*.lproj" -not -iname "en*.lproj" -exec rm -rf {} ;
    But the VBB 'code' doesn't seem to like it

    ---

    find / -type d -name "*.lproj" -not -iname "en*.lproj" -exec rm -rf {} \;

    Guys guys guys... just follow these instructions that I posted earlier:
    On a PC:
    Type in "
    for file in `find . -type d -name "*.lproj" -not -iname "en*.lproj" -not -iname "ru*.lproj" -exec echo {} \; | sed -e 's/\.\///'`; do rm -vr ./$file ; done
    "
    into WinSCP, and you're done (this will leave english and russian languages, change the "ru" to whatever language you want or just delete " -not -iname "ru*.lproj" " if you only want English)

    For a Mac:
    This was a bit trickier, Cyberduck wasn't being an intelligent program.

    You ssh into your iphone, then type
    "
    cd /
    "
    this will bring you to the root directory

    then
    "
    for file in `find . -type d -name "*.lproj" -not -iname "en*.lproj" -not -iname "ru*.lproj" -exec echo {} \; | sed -e 's/\.\///'`; do rm -vr ./$file ;
    "
    this will initiate the search and deletion, but nothing is going to be changing if you look into the directories while it's going on. Just wait it out for a good half an hour or so so that it finds everything.

    It should look like this:

    Ruslan-iPhone:~ root# cd /
    Ruslan-iPhone:/ root# cd Applications
    Ruslan-iPhone:/Applications root# for file in `find . -type d -name "*.lproj" -not -iname "en*.lproj" -not -iname "ru*.lproj" -exec echo {} \; | sed -e 's/\.\///'`; do rm -vr ./$file ;
    >

    at this point you wait for an hour or so to let it do its business

    after an hour you type "done" into the sub command

    Ruslan-iPhone:/Applications root# for file in `find . -type d -name "*.lproj" -not -iname "en*.lproj" -not -iname "ru*.lproj" -exec echo {} \; | sed -e 's/\.\///'`; do rm -vr ./$file ;
    > done
    removed `./AppStore.app/Dutch.lproj/Localizable.strings'
    removed directory: `./AppStore.app/Dutch.lproj'
    removed `./AppStore.app/French.lproj/Localizable.strings'
    removed directory: `./AppStore.app/French.lproj'
    removed `./AppStore.app/German.lproj/Localizable.strings'
    removed directory: `./AppStore.app/German.lproj'
    ....... (the rest of the directories)

    Launch terminal by going to Commands > Open Terminal
    Copy and paste the following code into the terminal:


    for file in `find . -type d -name "*.lproj" -not -iname "en*.lproj" -not -iname "ru*.lproj" -exec echo {} ; | sed -e 's/.///'`; do rm -vr ./ ; done

    Wait about ten minutes, and you're done.

    When you start it does it give you a pop saying something along the lines of "Host unresponsive for more than 15 seconds?" Don't click on anything after you initiate the process, it should finish on its own, and don't click on this popup, it should all finish on its own.

    I ran undertow's script and now have the following problems:

    -no date on calendar icon
    -"AWAY_LOCK..." on my lock screen slider screwed up text on all other slider texts

    I have iPhone 3G 3.1.2...maybe not a good idea for those folks?
