    Is there a tweak to mass delete iMessages? I hate having to go through individual ones to delete them.... thanks.

    Are you talking about deleting all iMessages (threads) at once or deleting multiple messages within a thread?

    If you are comfortable with SQL, you can execute SQL commands using iFile. DB is in /var/mobile/Library/SMS.

    Has any one found a delete all tweak for imessages? It is really annoying that you have to delete one by one.

    If you want to delete everything then just delete the database I mentioned earlier.

    You don't have to...just delete the files.

    Deleting SMS.db will delete ALL threads. After you delete SMS.db, reboot your phone

    So how can I delete some threads but not everything? If I open SMS.db, it gives me a form of a PDF that can't be edited.

    You would need to edit the database.

    I don't quite understand what's the problem here. You can delete an entire thread at once. Is that something hard to accomplish?
