HowTo: Boost iPhone/iTouch Speed By Removing Unnecessary Languages

So far we’ve seen how to boost iPhone’s speeds by forcing MobileSafari to stop running in the background and by deleting and editing some launch daemons. There is another thing you can do to increase your speeds and this one is time consuming. There’s a warning for you. You can delete all the additional languages that you dont use anyway.

So basically, let’s say you use only the english language for your device , you can SSH into your device and delete all the other languages to speed up performance and save a little bit of RAM.

So , if you want to keep only English for your device, you will delete all the other .lproj folders and keep only English.lproj or en.lproj . Sounds simple right? It is simple, but it’s time consuming. You need to SSH into your device and delete all the unnecessary languages from this locations:
