    Is there an app that can scanfor dependencies that aren't being used anymore and get rid of them? I feel like I've got a whole bunch of those from all the apps I've deleted and stuff.

    I'm not sure why you guys worry about this so much, Cydia does a pretty good job cleaning, however every ones in entitle to worry about anything they want. I haven't seen any "Application" that can do that, but you can try the old apt way. just SSH into the device and run

    Code:
    apt-get autoremove 
    I am not sure how 'complete' is the apt-get port of the iPhone but the if it doesn't work them all you will get is a command not found error

    I was more referring to like when I install iFile and it needs all those unzipprers, they install too. but when I uninstall iFile, all the unzippers stay on my phone, but they're not needed.

    I ran that apt-get command and it came back with nothing removed. I guess it's not that big of a deal, I just feel like after a while I'll have a lot of those little files hanging around.
