I don't remember being mentioned that the "virtual memory" .plist makes the iPhone faster. It is used by those wanting to background several apps and multitask between them to have some disk space used as physical ram. And yes, removing some of the launch daemons stop certain processes from taking processor capacity so this makes the iPhone a bit faster. But these are two separate functions, not the same. Just saying..

Well, here's the situation. What's good for the goose may not be good for the gander. If you want to use your iPhone to play games, then maybe your method works best for you. I use my iPhone to manage my business, which means I'd rather have several apps open at the same time and not one big mem-hogging game on. My method works for me. We're both happy. The beauty of this all is anyone can configure their device to work however they want, there's not one right-one wrong way. Moving right along...

I just removed the swap files. While it's handy having more apps open in the background, the sluggishness got to me. Disabling Overboard didn't fix it in the long run.
So I'll just stick to having 2 or 3 apps open at any one time. That should make it easier on the battery as well!

Very well. However, the .plist launch daemon will create swap files as needed, if you leave it in the launchdaemons folder. As I said, I think it's cool everyone can configure their device as they want it. Glad you're enjoying it!
EDIT: I did NOT disable Overboard, I'm still using it. I disabled mobile expose, an MS addon through SBSettings and my slugginess went away. Not sure that's related but that's what worked for me as I was testing different setups. In addition, deleting the swap files ever so often forces the plist to re-create fresh ones. I notice more zippiness when this is done. Just a comment for those interested.

Just downloaded and manually installed 'i think' the Chinese version of the iphonevm.deb file and not the recommended .plist file. I don't like it and I would like to remove it. I've checked in Cydia and it is not showing up there to remove (obviously as i installed it manually) and I've done a dpkg -r in mobile terminal and it gives me the following message:
'warning: ignorning request to remove iphonevm which isn't installed.'
BUT IT IS.....HELP....
