BOOST Battery/Speed on iOS 9.x.x by disabling launch daemons.

EDIT: Just tried this on my iPhone 6S+ 12.1.1 beta 3 and it still works. Added a new launch daemon to disable.

As the title suggests I have been disabling launch daemons for my iPhone 6S+ on iOS 9.3.2 as I have been annoyed at how fast my battery drain is due to bloat iOS processes hogging resources.

Using a free cydia app called "CocoaTop" I was finally able to view the Process List in it's entirety!!


The culprit launch daemons causing battery drain listed below:

WARNING: Be very careful as this potentially can brick your jailbreak if you stray from directions here!

com.apple.WebBookmarks.webbookmarksd.plist
com.apple.aggregated.plist
com.apple.aggregated.addaily.plist
com.apple.gamed.plist (Disables GameCenter which I don't need)
com.apple.mediastream.mstream.plist
com.apple.atc.wakeup.plist


Simply locate the launch daemons in System/Library/Launch Daemons, and disable by placing a "1" in the name of the file. REBOOT to apply changes.

***BONUS BATTERY BOOST: Follow quick instructions below:

1. Open Filza and look for com.apple.backboardd.plist in System/Library/LaunchDeamons
2. Open the file via Property List Viewer, click on the ! on the right side and disable RunAtLoad and KeepAlive
3. Save, and reboot your phone.

NOTE: BackBoard is responsible for forwarding the following hardware events to processes (Which used to all be handled by "Springboard.plist pre-iOS 9"):

Touch events (Your swipe style is unique to everyone else's, so Crapple has been tracking this since arrival of 3D-Touch)

Accelerometer input (Our phones know our walking, biking, driving habits and all that is obviously being tracked)

Hardware keyboard input (Like a regular PC keyboard, every key that is pressed on your phone is tracked).

Orientation events

Proximity sensor events

TV/Video out events

Scary to think one thing tracks all this -- Important to note Crapple's recent 'secret' implementation of spyware mechanisms into iOS to track a user's swipes/device usage history/travel locations/etc -- Basically constant spying, which perfectly explains why iOS 9's device, by default, is constantly burning battery/device cpu resources to communicate back with whomever is doing the spying (NSA, FBI, CIA, etc.)

Modifying the com.apple.backboardd.plist has shown great results for me as I've noticed this process using up to 35% of CPU at times, but now uses much less somehow after doing this - thus saving noticeably more battery & I suspect it disables some of the "Spyware mechanisms".


MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!! Can confirm DRAMATICALLY improved battery efficiency now after disabling these resource-hogging/spyware-esque processes. MY 6S+ RUNNING 9.3.2 IS NOW AS ENERGY EFFICIENT AS IOS 8.X.X IS. 12 hours unplugged, left idle & I'm still at 99%, HUZZAH!!!!!

(Though I must add that I have notifications turned off for everything except default apps. And that I have Background App Refresh turned off and use Watchdog Pro as my background manager.)


Some people Including Saurik of Cydia has claimed that it's pointless to disable launch daemons. This tweak alone + the countless other daemons I've disabled proves that it can make a HUGE difference and is worth looking into.


***NOTE: CocoaTop app while great, does NOT show CPU usage for Dual-Core processors, for that I use 'System Activity Monitor' which costs $.99 from the App Store & is also one of 2 apps I know of that FREES UP RAM.***

Not sure about iCloud bookmark syncing as I don't use it. Regular bookmarking within Safari works though I can confirm that. Everything so far works as it normally should on my end.

Hmm... over 400 views of this post and no other questions or reports of problems? Or are many people afraid to try this out? Or just no side effects to report?

I'm on 9.0.2 and do not see those daemons in iCleaner or in the /System/Library/Launch Daemons folder
Original 8 Gig JB on 3.1.3

White 3G on Whited00r

Black 4s on 8.4 JB - used as iPod only now but

Went to rogue to Nexus 5 and Nexus 6 because I got tired of the JB cat and mouse game and thought the iPhone 5 body was stupid.

Came back with 6+ currently on 9.0.2 JB

6s+ on 10.1.1 Yalu waiting on permanent JB


Many other phone still in my possession but will not listen the all.

Perhaps your phone isn't specifically monitored like I'm quite certain mine is (due to my political social media tweets) which is why your phone doesn't experience spikes. Who knows

***NOTE: The biggest story on the internet the last 2 1/2 months has been "Pizzagate/Pedogate" involving the Clintons, Obama, other members of the Democratic party & high members of News media organizations like CNN. But the news media has been censoring the story as "fake news", saying that the wikileak emails were "Russia's fault". Any posts involving #pizzagate #pedogate have been auto censored/blocked by Twitter while thousand upon thousands of child porn posts are ignored on Twitter, they are also complicit in pedophilia.***

You gotta reboot to see the changes take effect.
