    The fastest way I know is to reset the phone back to factory settings.

    Please refrain from offering advice in these forums. The fastest way you know isn't a way at all. It won't do what the user asked. In fact, it'll prevent them from doing what they asked.

    It's perfectly acceptable to say nothing or "I don't know." What you did was worse than either of those options.
    Maybe you should take some of your own advice with the "say nothing at all" rather than run someone down for trying to help.

    Wow! I thought she was offering help. I also thought that's what members of "these" forums were supposed to do.

    Thanks John for the heads up! I use iCleaner which I believe has been taken off from App store. It does a great job!

    Yes Apple has been cracking down on those I'm sure there is another way to properly solve the issue

    I have posted this on couple of forums already but let me say it again. Apple should come up with it's own system level de-fragmentation mechanism which will save hell lot of time rather than erasing the iPhone completely or restoring to factory settings.

    You can still get iCleaner thru Cydia. I would try that before you start deleting apps.
    Trying to isolate the issue could be a bit time consuming but starting backwards from the last thing you downloaded from Cydia at a time to see where the conflict might be.

    I know you inquired about deleting them all at once but I think this might be your only approach with no new jailbreak offered if you wipe your phone. But really a systematic one at a time delete you may find the culprit sooner than you think!
    Good Luck

    I do understand that but I was going off my own experience. My 4s is jailbroken & when I had a 5 it was at one point but my phone started acting weird too and even with using a few apps that were for jailbroken phones my phone was still acting crazy, so I wiped it. Smoothness & experience is a little more important to me than tweaks and the forums are about sharing what we think is best.

    So the op said. Blah blah blah and reload my jailbreak apps blah blah blah
    So yeah if OP just wanted apples buttery smooth iOS then wipe/restore as new add back stuff.
    However it was specifically stated that jailbreak was desired result.

    This thread is beyond dead at this point.

    Again, forums are for sharing what "we" as individuals think is best. I was surprised to see it was even that serious for someone to get upset about a comment...but to each their own!

    And I agree...this thread is dead. Good day, 3cit
