    How can i delete the documents and data for an app without deleting the app? Are there any known cydia tweaks? I havent found anything on the app store

    You can delete the app and all it's data, documents will go also - but not the settings/preferences.
    If you then reload it, the data and documents should not come back.

    iCleaner (from cydia) with the applications option enabled

    I think there's a blacklist/whitelist

    Ihave this question too, but I want to delete all text conversations in bulk rather than one at a time. I don't think I can delete the message app since it is part of the iphone OS. Any other way to do this ?

    Navigate to /var/mobile/Library/SMS, and delete everything in that folder and reboot

    I ended up using iexplorer to back up my text messages. It worked well for this and also backing up other stuff on my iphone. I wasn't able to figure out how to navigate to the location above.
