    Removed all the safe daemons and a couple of the optional ones, and also deleted all the non-English language packs. Not seeing a big difference on my 3G so far. I have about 30 mb RAM free when I boot up, it used to be in the 20 mb range. However, the phone doesn't seem any faster. Boot time is still around 90 seconds.

    Overall, it's interesting, but don't know how worth the trouble it is? Are there any other mods like this that I can try?

    ^Try installing 'NoSpot' (via Cydia). Disables Spotlight. Helped me a bit with memory and performance.

    ^ a new app called Springtomize will also disable Spotlight, Voice Control, and several other things. It's pretty cool!

    You can customize ur Status Bar, Icons, Folders, Lockscreen, etc. w/out the use of Winterboard slowing down ur phone.

    Is disabling spotlight manually the same thing?

    ^No, I don't think so. If you're talking about the Setting/General/Home Button/Spotlite Search items... Didn't help for me. I could not 'uncheck' everything and remove the left search page (left of Home).

    Everything is safe but it's a lot easier now. Google 'sysclean' or 'syscleanpro (if u need languages other than English).'. This does it automatically in MobileTerminal ios4. From the repo u get sysclean from, also get Daemon Tool. It's automatic at install.

    Technically, you can remove com.apple.fairplayd.plist as long as you don't have any apple content.

    Leave alone installd. One gone, ur apps (even /Applications will disappear.

    I've removed launch daemons and excess language packs on my 8GB iPhone 3G. To be honest, I have seen only marginal RAM increases. What helped me the MOST, however was to go into sbsettings, then the following: more>mobile substrate addons> set winterboard to "off"

    My phone still seems a but sluggish at times though. Maybe this is because as apps and the iOS get updated for newer devices, they include more features that require greater system resources that older devices don't have?

    Wish I could run winterboard and themes without the sluggishness...

    Unfortunately WB is a RAM hog. But here are more tools for u to use. Theyre all from the same source so Google the name and you'll find the repo for them: Hint - it's insane!

    sysclean
    Daemon Tool
    iMemory Enhancer

    I also have Multifl0w, Backgrounder and VLingo so I turned off Multitasking, Nike, & Voice Control in the N82AP.plist file found in /System/Library/Core Services/Springboard.app

    Lastly, I have NoSpot from Cydia that disables the Spotlight Search Page AS WELL as unchecking what Spotlight can search. This is found in Settings-General-Home Button.

    These things will get you some RAM.

    Thanks, I saw mention of those utilities here. Guess I will go back and re-read some posts and try them.

    One thing I saw mentioned but never answered is: Is deleting the start up daemons the same as "disabling" them?

    I'm not sure but I'm not willing to try it either. The days of manually deleting daemons are over for me! That's why I use Daemon Tool. It removes the 'safe to delete' daemons for u automatically on install

    Looks like the tools do more than removing things manually (and work faster!)

    Question about Daemon Tool - is there a way to re-enable specific daemons if I desire, or is my only option to re-enable all of them at once?

    3GS + 4.3.3 + Custom firmware (just for preserving baseband) + redsn0w jailb. and ultrasn0w unlock.

    On pure firmware (just jailbrake+unlock) battery consumption was about 4-6% per night (10 hours), after installing SSH, iFile, OpenVPN, 1nsta110us and some other stuff it consumes about 10% per 10 hours (in standby).

    I've installed SysInfoPlus in order to see what daemons are launched and their processor time consumption, but sysinfoplus not showing the processor time counter...

    I have only the list:

    Mobile user's processes
    mediaserverd
    mediaremoted
    fairplayd.N88
    apsd
    accessoryd
    SpringBoard
    BTServer
    lsd
    MobileSlideShow
    Prefences

    Other Processes
    kernel_task
    crunchd
    openvpn_manager
    sbsettingsd
    usbethernetshari
    syslogd
    lockdown
    mDNSResponder
    locationd
    configd
    CommCenter
    notifyd
    SCHelper
    iFile_
    sshd
    bash

    Any ideas who can eat battery? BTW how to see the processor time consumption for daemons?

    Reboot. Then backup the daemons and follow a guide on removing them.

    Bash and iFile_ processes will end after reboot. Always make sure you don't close a shell when it's soon stuff. Additionally the iFile_ is the webserver. It is activated when the button is hit

    I found that my unlocked but activated with original sim device is using internet every hour for about 20-50 kbytes, push & notifications were all off. I've removed the com.apple.apsd.plist, com.apple.apsd.tcpdump.en0.plist, com.apple.apsd.tcpdump.pdp_ip0.plist - now it stopped its every hour connections, but at night (4AM) it again connected somewhere and now for 630 kbytes.

    Found a lot of messages in other forums about that, some have about 70 mbytes sessions at night.

    There were no such activity on the 3.1.2 firmware, how to get rid of that in 4.3.3?

    Any howto on tcpdump?

    P.S. Is it possible to automatically turn off cellular data when phone is in the standby mode and turn it on back when it is used?

    Turn off location. Removing the daemon bootloops the device.
