The ultimate, iPod and optimization app! It removes unnecessary files from your device, and
What does it do?
iCleaner can remove unnecessary files from your device. The cleanup process is made of the following steps:
Message attachments (disabled by default): it deletes files sent and received via iMessage or MMS. The “smart” setting only deletes files that do not show up in
Safari: it deletes cookies, browsing history and cache files to free up memory and preserve your privacy.
Applications: it deletes unnecessary AppStore apps caches, cookies, temporary files and snapshots. Furthermore, it
: it cleans up caches and temporary files, Cydia applications unnecessary files, partially downloaded Cydia packages and repo files.
Cydia sources (disabled by default): it deletes Cydia sources files. Useful if Cydia sources aren’t updating correctly.
Unused dependencies (disabled by default): issues the “apt-get autoremove” command in order to remove packages installed as dependencies that are not needed anymore. Additionally, it removes preference files left by some uninstalled packages and removes unneeded entries from the “/var/lib/dpkg/status” file.
Log files: it deletes log files and crash reports from known locations. These files are generally irrelevant to the user and can be safely deleted.
Cache files: it scans and deletes system cache files and databases. Some of them are rebuilt upon respring. This helps removing obsolete cache data.
Temporary files: it deletes temporary files from your device. These files are meant to be removed automatically, but they often happen not to. iCleaner takes care of that.
Filetype cleanup: iCleaner features a custom cleanup pass based on file extensions. By default, it looks for log and temp files all over the directory tree.
Custom files and Folders cleanup (disabled by default): with this extremely powerful feature, you can add any file or folder to the cleanup process. Check the readme file for a detailed explaination of how it works.
Launch Daemons, MobileSubstrate addons & Preference Bundles management:
Daemons are processes that are launched upon system startup (or at a later time) and run in the background. Disabling some of them may speed up your device by freeing up system resources. Furthermore, you will be able to enable/disable core system functions (such as OTA updates,Center, Internet Tethering, VPN and more).
Without too much technicality, MobileSubstrate addons are tweaks you installed via Cydia. You can enable or disable them with a single tap, while still having them installed.
This tool should be mainly used to troubleshoot faulty/incompatible tweaks without having to go through the Cydia install/uninstall process.
Preference Bundles are responsible of displaying preferences for tweaks in the Settings app. Disabling them will make them unavailable, giving you control about which preferences can be actually seen and edited.
