For speed improvement try fakeclockup----It runs well and improves speed
doesn't actually speed up....it jus increase animation speed....after a while one can really grow tired of it...as it just looks annoying....I have tried it and removed it after jus minutes

True on that, but I tell ya I ran it on my old 3GS and i swear it does a little more than animation speed, just seemed snappier. I run it on my Ipad-1 and love it still. worth a try for OP

Placebo. Sometimes what tricks the eye also tricks the mind. ;)

I've heard of this app on Cydia name SignalRefresh . To be honest IDK if it works but im going to test it out and I'll see if I can say if it works.


EDIT: Well i just used it and it seems like the signal is still the same.

You can delete your unneeded daemons, will improve RAM, processor performance, and battery life.

In my opinion removing demaons has a negligible effect for iPhone 4 and 4S users. iPhone 3G and 3GS users I can see why one would want to do that. But like someone said, be careful what you are removing because if you remove the wrong one, you are guaranteed problems.

Quite a deal for zero performance improvement.
I wouldn't say zero, I get maybe 30mb ram increase at any given time, plus boot up speed is significantly faster.

I guess it does seem like a big deal if it's your first time, but I had to do it multiple times on my iPad 1 because of it's ridiculously low ram.

Just a suggestion for OP, that is what he was asking for.

So, the only benefit is if you have a device with insufficient ram that you boot a lot.

Close apps from background, delete apps/tweaks you don't use, download an app called "Clean up" and let it run. You'll see major improvement!

It clears all the Internet history, cookies, etc which is saved on the phone memory.. The more you get rid of the better the performance is.

You seem to think I am saying it will singe handedly improve the speed and usability of your device dramatically. I'm saying it's a little boost, 10 more minutes of battery, slightly faster booting, and a little more RAM in exchange for following 1 page of instructions and no adverse effects on your device as long as you avoid the daemons on the "Do not touch" list.

...slightly faster booting,
Wow, in just 3 hours your boot time gone from 'significantly' to just 'slightly faster'.

OP: Here are the benefits;

Slightly faster boot times. I try and avoid booting my iDevices, but whatever floats your boat. Think of the time you will save, I know I stop everything I am doing and watch my phone boot.

10 more minutes battery time. I'm not sure how you'll know this, but it's a benefit, right?

A little more ram - Don't spend it all in one place!

I don't see what what your problem is exactly, OP asked for ways to speed up his phone and that is what I gave him. If you don't want to do it, more power to you, but I see no reason for you to bash ideas when I am simply responding to the thread. Did you have a traumatic experience with daemons in your early childhood?

We can agree to disagree, nobody gets anywhere arguing on the Internet. We cool? Bro fist?
