    Lots of stuff there! Hope no one quotes the entire post!

    My personal experience with Action Menu was that it took much longer for the actions to pop-up, so I removed it.

    F.lux is a GREAT tweak which I keep installed but I toggle it on and off manually because sometimes I get the feeling that it drains my battery pretty quickly.

    I'm using a 4S and on 5.0.1.


    EDIT: For the tweaks labeled Bug Fix, did those end up having an effect? I haven't tried them myself.

    Yeah, they generally made it a little smoother. The thing is that my phone doesn't run slowly at all, I just feel like I have too much on my phone.

    wow is there nothing in Cydia you don't install sorry I don't have knowledge on allot of the stuff you installed. most of us are careful about going crazy in cydia. I can tell you most of us aren't into helping people with things like Installous 4 and Hackulous Resources - 1.3.1 usually translates that you don't like to pay for your stuff... :mad:

    I pay for all my tweaks, as I find it essential to support a developer, even if he's already made quite a lot of money. Apps on the other hand are different. Some times there are apps I consider buying and then try on installous, but end up hating. As is I only have like 3 apps, and none of them are from installous.

    My advice to you is to go through your list one app at a time and ask yourself if you really NEED it and how often you really use it.

    Then start removing any apps/tweaks based on that thought process. Keep only the ones you find essential and eliminate the rest.

    NOTE: when deleting any apps, make sure you closely observe what "modifications" are being done by removing that particular app/tweak. Sometimes, there are "dependencies" that are also deleted when you choose to remove a certain application.

    I also recommend to respring after EVERY app removal (even when not required).

    Also Springtomize 2 offers tweaks that does the same job as other apps you have installed. In addition, the latest Sparrow+ version (available by adding developer's beta repo) eliminates the need for Sparrow Push.

    Take your time and have fun. You definitely have a lot of stuff that you really don't need. Your iDevice will thank you for it. Trust me. ;)
