Suggested March 2024 Pro Tip: Clean Up Leftover Preference Files After Uninstalling Jailbreak Tweaks

Whenever you uninstall jailbreak tweaks from your device, there’s a good chance that there are still some leftover preference files somewhere in your device’s filesystem.

In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to do some spring cleaning and remove the unnecessary leftover preference files.

Why to clean up after uninstalled jailbreak tweaks

After you uninstall a jailbreak tweak, you may want to remove the leftover files that remain on your device. These files typically store the settings that are created when you configure the tweak from the preferences pane in the Settings app, and sometimes you may also have files made for tweaks that have no options to configure at all.

In other situations, sometimes the tweak makes additional file entries in your device’s file system, but it varies depending on the tweak.

Removing these unnecessary files helps to better organize your filesystem, free up valuable storage space, and also help increase your device’s stability. Moreover, if you’re experiencing some kind of conflict, it’s usually a good idea to take out the trash and have only the preference files you really need.

This process can also help you troubleshoot a jailbreak tweak if it seems to be crashing after changing a setting, as it lets you put things back to how they were when you first installed it.

So without further ado, let’s get into the process…

How to remove the most common files

You are going to need a file browser to perform this action. We highly recommend iFile, a tried and true file browser for jailbroken iOS devices that continues to work great to this day. It’s available for free in Cydia as shareware, but you can purchase a license to unlock all of the additional features if you wish.

We’ll be using iFile for this tutorial. To remove the unwanted preference files from previously uninstalled jailbreak tweaks on your jailbroken device, follow these steps:

1) Download and install iFile if you don’t already have it.

2) Launch iFile from your Home screen.

3) Navigate to /var/mobile/Library/Preferences to get to the list of preference files on your device.

4) Once you’re in the Preferences folder, tap in the Edit button, and begin selecting the preference files from all of the jailbreak tweaks you’ve previously uninstalled.

Note: Don’t select the preference files of the tweaks you still have installed, as this will reset their settings to the defaults and force you to re-configure them. Avoid selecting chúng tôi files, as these are Apple’s own preference files and deleting them could affect the stability or performance of your device.

5) When satisfied with the selection of preference files, tap on the Trash Can button at the bottom of the app.

6) Now, tap on the red Move X Files to Trash button from the pop-up menu that appears.

7) Now, tap on the Trash Can button at the bottom of the app for a second time.

8) From the pop-up menu, tap on the blue Empty Trash button.

9) Tap on the blue Close button that appears on the next Prompt, and then tap on the blue Done button at the top right of the app.

Note: Optionally, you can continue searching your iOS device’s filesystem for additional jailbreak tweak files. This is the typical location for most jailbreak tweak files, but on occasion, jailbreak tweaks make additional files and folders throughout the file system.

10) Once all that has been done, respring or reboot your device.

And that’s all there is to it!

Wrapping up

Removing junk files that accumulate over time is a good idea if you’re constantly installing and removing jailbreak tweaks.

As a jailbreak tweak reviewer, I do this quite often, mostly because I want to test jailbreak tweaks in as sterile as an environment as possible to eliminate the chances of conflicts. Of course, basic jailbreak users are going to install and uninstall jailbreak tweaks quite regularly as well, especially since the urge to try new things arises when new tweaks are released.

Delay Read Receipts (iOS 10) – FREE

QuickPowerMode – FREE

Turning on Low Power Mode on an iPhone is a convoluted process because you have to launch the Settings app and go into the Battery preferences pane just to find the toggle switch.

Whatsapp Calls Not Ending After Hanging Up, How To Fix

I was having this problem on my iPhone. I was able to make video or voice calls, however, when I wanted to finish the call by tapping the red End button, it appeared that the call was never ending even though voice or video feeds were stopped. Here are more details about this problem:

The call banner on the top of the screen indicating the iPhone is on call is still present even after the call is supposed to have ended.

The same issue occurs even when the recipient does not answer the call.

This issue usually lasts less than a minute after the call is ended.

Since the call has not fully ended — the speakers, camera or microphone are still used by WhatsApp — you won’t be able to make new calls or take photos. You may get, for example, an error message saying, “You cannot place a WhatsApp call if you’re already on another call” when you want to make a new call.

When I tried to close the app by opening the App Switcher, it was not possible to close the app; the app appeared to be stuck, saying “call disconnecting.”

WhatsApp is used by millions of people. You can use it to make free voice or video calls over the Internet with other WhatsApp users, regardless of the device category. If you are having this issue with your calls, I explain in this article what you can do to fix it.

Restarting is a sort of catch-all troubleshooting tip. As always, I recommend restarting your iPhone to see if this fixes this problem:

iPhone X and later (iPhone models without a Home button): Press and hold the volume up (or down) and the side buttons together until you see the power-off slider. Move the slider to the right and wait for your iPhone to completely power off. Then press and hold the side button again to turn on your iPhone.

Other iPhone models: Press and hold the side or top button until you see the power-off slider. Drag the slider. Wait around 30 seconds until your iPhone has turned off. Then press and hold the side or top button again to turn it on.

Update iPhone and WhatsApp

You can also check if you are running the latest WhatsApp version. Open the App Store. Using the search option, search WhatsApp. When you find WhatsApp, if it says “open,” that means you have the latest version.

Turn off proxy or VPN

If you are connected to the Internet over VPN or proxy, they can cause issues with other network connections like WhatsApp calls. Disable them and then place WhatsApp calls. Has your WhatsApp returned to normal? If the answer is yes, then they were probably causing the problem. You can contact your system admin or the developer of the app for more support.

Offload WhatsApp

Offloading is like deleting the app without deleting your content. In other words, you can delete WhatsApp without deleting your chat history. If your issue continues, do this.

After offloading, restart your iPhone.

Now reinstall WhatsApp. There are two ways:

Or, find the WhatsApp app icon on your home screen or in the App Library with an arrow in front of it. Tap to download and install it.
