    Default Speed up your iDevice

    Note: I do not take any credit for the descriptions of the daemons, they were not written by me.

    In this tutorial I will be showing you how to delete some launch daemons on your iDevice to free up RAM and speed up performance.

    Note: Before deleting any daemons, make a backup of the entire folder, just to be safe.

    Every daemon in this tutorial has been tested on an iPhone 4 running iOS 6.0.1, I am not responsible for any damage to devices other than the aforementioned iPhone. This tutorial applies to all devices running iOS 6.

    Also, if you fuck up and need to restore your daemons, I won't upload them. I'll be happy to help you fix it, but I won't give you any of the files.

    Preface!

    So first off, what are launch daemons in iOS? The launch daemons are processes and services that are started when your device is starting up, and are constantly running and eating up memory. While it's true that some are necessary, there are also plenty that are not and can be safely deleted. Below, I will list safe daemons to delete, conditional daemons, daemons you'll need to make modifications to, and daemons you should never delete. Upon completing this tutorial, your device should be more responsive, boot faster, and use less RAM when idling. Let's get started, eh?

    First, find iFile on Cydia and download it. It is paid but if you want to get it free there are ways. (Note: You can also install SSH and use a client like FileZilla to SSH into your device and delete the daemons).

    Next, browse to System/Library/LaunchDaemons

    To disable a daemon, simply delete the corresponding .plist file (don't forget to back them up!).

    Safe Daemons
    These can be deleted by any user, with no adverse effects on the device.


    Conditional Daemons
    These daemons can be disabled by certain users who have no need for some features of their device.


    Self-Edit Daemons
    These daemons require you to do additional steps to remove them.


    Device-Specific Daemons
    The functions of these daemons are currently unknown. Proceed with caution.


    Daemons you should never touch.
    These daemons are crucial to the operation of your device and should not be modified in any way.


    Upon completing the tutorial, restart your iDevice. Otherwise, you won't notice any difference. If you have any troubles post below and I'll do my best to help. If you can't find a particular daemon, just don't worry about it.

    Most iphones/ipods are pretty speedy if you ask me but this extra boost is terrific for playing multiplayer games like nazi zombies ipod version and NOVA 2.

    I didn't copy and paste all of this, Josh.

    Mostly the info about the daemons themselves.

    Age has nothing to do with knowledge, I'm only fifteen.

    When the RemoveLaunchDaemons package is downloaded, it runs it automatically. You should notice a jump in speed and responsiveness after rebooting your device.

    Great tutorial/explanation, but wouldn't it be helpful if you had the certain specific device that this is compatible with in the title?

    The manual way has been compatible with every device i've tested, and i believe the Cydia script checks what device you're using for compatibility.
