Thread: Ryan Petrich's New 'CacheCleaner' Tweak Re-claims Precious Space Stolen by Caches

    Default Ryan Petrich's New 'CacheCleaner' Tweak Re-claims Precious Space Stolen by Caches


    Applications like Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and many others that always load new data onto your device hold what's called a cache. In other words, these applications save data on your device to make loading faster the next time you launch the application.

    The unfortunate side effect to this is that those with Apple's latest devices with just 16GB of storage need to limit application caching in order to prevent their device storage from filling up too quickly, after all, the high-quality camera and retina HD display both create and require high-resolution images that will quickly eat up space if we're not smart to manage our storage.

    A new free jailbreak tweak dubbed CacheCleaner by iOS developer Ryan Petrich is now available to give users additional control over their application caches.

    The tweak adds a new "Clear App's Cache" button to every application under the Usage section in the Settings application, as shown above. When you tap on it, the cache for the application will be dumped and in turn, you get more storage space. The tweak even goes the extra mile to tell you just how much space you've gained back.

    If you don't have the 30 days to wait for cache data to be dumped, then this method makes a great manual solution for obtaining more storage space. There are no additional options to configure, so check it out!

    If you want to add CacheCleaner to your jailbroken iOS 8 device, add Ryan Petrich’s beta repository by following the steps below:

    • tap on the Manage tab
    • tap on the Sources button
    • tap on the Edit button
    • tap on the Add button
    • enter the following URL and then tap Add Source:


    PHP Code:
    http://rpetri.ch/repo/ 
    You will find the tweak for free in his beta repository.

    I was wondering this as well but I think if anything it is just more precise for cleaning caches.

    I prefer iCleaner Pro. It has more options than just app caches. But I do like having additional choices.

    Exactly as TDH said.. More precise for cleaning.. I have both and use both.. Just kind of a PITA to do each app individually. Oh well, still cleaned up my phone and launches the apps much faster than after an iCleaner cleaning.

    It's called "CacheClearer". Not Cleaner.

    No, as iCleaner clears all device cache, whereas Petrich's tweak only clears specific app cache.
