    Hi all!

    Before I would use Sbsettings to disable a tweak thus identifying which one would be the culprit for an app crash.

    Sbsettings is not ios 7 compatible. Is there a replacement to disable tweak by tweak?

    Cheers!

    iCleaner Pro. You need to add the devs beta repo for it. Once it's out of beta you have to use his regular repo. Only iCleaner is in the default repo (BigBoss I think). iCleaner Pro is on his personal repo.

    Do you need the addresses?

    Edit:

    And his regular repo is...

    Thanks, but this will install way too many things. Is there any thing simpler than this? Similar to SBSettings?

    They're all really tiny packages with various low level responsibilities. Not going to add anything to your phone.

    You asked a question, man answered it.

    Not only that, but iCleaner Pro is a multifunctional maintenance tool. It makes it very easy to clean up the system, remove unwanted languages, disable launch daemons, delete preference files, etc AND very, very easily turn tweaks on and off.

    Sure, it may be a bit confusing at the start but once you see what it does you'll wonder how you got along with out it before.

    Thanks bro :)

    Was gonna say the same thing. Why do people freak out over dependencies?! It's the actual dlyb from the actual tweak that can hurt performance, not usually low level dependencies. He'll learn though. Jailbreaking is definitely a learning process.

    OP, dependencies are good because they're essentially isolated libraries/functions which prevent developers from installing the same (or similar) library that a tweak already installed might be using. This prevents duplicating functionality and helps improve performance and stability.

    ----------

    Thanks for helping explain it. The OP should use this. Hell one could argue that even with "all those extra packages", iCleaner pro will have a smaller impact on performance and stability than SBSettings would!

    Edit: OP, if you do decide to install it, I recommend only running iCleaner once a month at most to clean up junk and free up substantial space. Cache files are important and they are very helpful. They keep the phone running fast and smooth. Every time you delete them, the app will have to regenerate the frequently used cache files so that next time you use it, the app can load the cache files. It'll be much faster to load the cache file instead of regenerating them from scratch. But it is good to run about once a month because it removes all the junk that you viewed once but will never see again (like images, UI layouts, and fonts, etc).

    Good bit of info. right here. Wasn't aware there could be an adverse affect running iCleaner everyday.
    Thank you for this!

    I tend to run it when I start getting issues. Usually that sorts it out. For instance, sometimes Forecast will get stuck with location/weather data and won't update. Usually running the cache cleaning process takes care of that.

    I tend not to run it that frequently for the same reasons Bumps gives.

    You are very welcome. Yea some (most?) people get the low level access that iCleaner offers and they immediately start using it all the time thinking they get to free up useful space. Yes this is true but it's not good to do that and it's shortsighted. This will actually slow down your device since every app you "cleaned" will now have to regenerate all it's cache files that it frequently loads to make your user experience enjoyable.

    That's why it's recommended to use about once a month. Yea the first time you use an app it will have to regenerate all those files, but then you're good to go until the next time you use iCleaner to delete all the cache files. This is why some people say iCleaner is bad. This topic is what they're referring to usually. Personally, I think it's just easier to inform a person how to use the utility instead of simply saying "it's bad for your device".

    I think it's the mentality of more packages mean more stuff installed that can drain battery or slow performance
