    Default If i reset my phone do I need to update!?
    I've installed/uninstalled too many tweaks too many times to the point of my phone just not running as smooth as I'd like it to. It's an iPhone 5 on 6.1.2. If I go to settings/general/reset then erase all content and settings would iTunes force me to update my phone after? I don't want to lose my JB as I do use most of the tweaks. I tried cleaning stuff out with SSH and iCleaner. It's not happening. I need a fresh restore or reset. Thanks brahs

    Doing that will bring it in a boot loop that's a big no no with a jailbreak phone. If ya want it cleaned out they ya saying great restore and update will be the only way sorry.

    iLex rat is the app u want to look at. Restores all you installed tweaks. Haven't tried it personally but I've heard good things. Don't RESTORE if you can help it as that's 6.1.4 & can't be jailbreaked.

    You can try to boot into safe mode (holding up volume (+) button while rebooting the iPhone). Then launch Cydia and uninstall one tweak at a time to see if that would clean it up. Good luck

    Thanks for the feedback brahs. I've ran iCleaner probably over 20 times since this post lol I think it fixed my issues. I had an issue with signal bars not sticking with themes. Like the theme would work everywhere except with downloaded apps. Now it works fine. I think I'm good until the next jailbreak

    One thing I have not been able to figure out is this "other" usage shown in iTunes. Right now I have almost 6GBs used as "other", my phone is only a 16GB iPhone 5. I searched on Google and a bunch of other places. There doesn't seem to be a proper solution.
