How to edit Daemon Tool iOS 5 extreme.list, the easy way.
Posted 09 February 2012 - 09:27 PM
Copy this post below and replace it with the content inside the extreme.list "via SSH or iFile" in Daemon Tool iOS 5, and of course back up the original content first. I recommend you watch the video above first if you don't know what your doing. Feel free to leave feedback about how this works out for you if you use it. I'm curious to see what people think. Thnx
"Enable or Disable daemons by removing or adding a bullet to or from the beginning of the commands. After you have edited the list to your liking run "daemontool -stock" to clear everything out, then run "daemontool - extreme" after that's all done then run "reboot or respring" to apply any changes done to the list.
All daemons are currently ENABLED on this list so you must first remove any bullets for it to have any effec.
You can remove everything from here up to the top after you know what your doing.
- These 5 are from the safe list.
- Logs crashes of applications and
3rd party apple to /var/mobile/Library/Logs, and also tells the system if a symlink cannot be created. Disables system crash logs.
- These Log push notification errors. Disable these if you don't use push notifications.
- This daemon manages system logs. Also disable if you don't log system crashes.
- When you are on a public network (like
my school) and Safari can't verify what website it is connecting to, it will say
"This website is not verified" or something like that, and asks if you want to
still continue. Feel free to disable this.
- (Computer Hardware Understanding Developer)These daemons are thought to relate to Apple's CHUD tools. Disabling these daemons will have no adverse effects on your
device, unless you are a developer.
- Moves crash log files from where they
originate to /var/Mobile/Library/Logs. Feel free to disable these if you don't have
your device log crashes.
- Cleans up old logs, safe to disable
if your already removing logging software. If you regularly run @p0sixninja's crash
reporter to help for jailbreaks, do not remove this.
- Dumps baseband crashes, which
shouldn't happen during normal use. iPod touch users don't even have a baseband.
If you regularly run @p0sixninja's crash reporter to help for jailbreaks, do not disable this.
- Dumps crashes for evaluation by Apple. If
you regularly run @p0sixninja's crash reporter to help for jailbreaks, do not
- Logs crashes related to iMessage,
FaceTime and ect. Feel free to disable this daemon.
- Deals with OTA software
updating. Feel free to remove, your jailbroken, you can't use it anyways.
- Moves crashes from Over the Air
software updates to /var/mobile/Library/Logs. Feel free to disable the daemon.
- Tells the device to periodically
check for OTA updates. Feel free to disable.
- This is used to monitor any
incompatibilities with 3rd party chargers. Just some more useless system log.
- All 5 of these daemons collect data about what causes a crash and what programs were
running at the time. If you regularly run @p0sixninja's crash reporter to
help for jailbreaks, do not disable these daemons.
Deals with developer crash logs, if you
aren't a developer then feel free to disable.
- Tells iOS how to start and execute an OTA update, feel free to remove. Although DO NOT attempt an OTA update with this disabled. I feel that it also stops the update from happening if the device is jailbroken.
- Starts the iOS Setup app
when the device first boots and after restores. Disable because it's no longer
needed after your initial setup.
- Logs system events. Disable if you don't want to log system events.
These daemons can be disabled by certain users who have no need for some features of their device.
- If removed, disables accessories like FM
radio transmitters, iPhone docks, and AV cables. Accessories will be able to
charge your device, but that is all they will be able to do. Remove this if you
don't use any of these accessories.
- If removed, Contacts in the Phone
application will load slightly slower. Disable this if you don't care about
- This daemon tries to return control of
your device to you if it thinks that you are waiting for a lengthly process to
respond. It does this by force-quitting the process, so if you're tired of your
apps crashing and you would rather wait a few seconds for them to finish what
they're doing, disable this daemon.
- This daemon deals with iCloud
syncing. If you do not use iCloud for backups, photostream, ect. then you can
- If disabled, Push Notifications and iMessages will no longer work.
- Starts the process for the
AssistiveTouch.app (Located under Accessibility). If you don't use this, then
feel free to remove it.
- Reminds the App Store to check for updates to installed applications, disable if you want to do this manually
- If disabled contacts will no
longer sync via Exchange, iCloud or Google Sync.(This will NOT disable Push notifications from Google Voice's app,
only the push mail service.)
- Used to transfer contacts from SIM card
to phone. iPod touch users can disable this.
- Used for GameCenter, disable if you don't use GameCenter.
- Deals with iTunes Cloud/Home Sharing.
Disable if you don't use that.
-Functions like "com.apple.accessoryd.plist", but it deals with accessories that also come with companion apps.
- Used for Internet Tethering.
Disable this if you have an iPod touch or if you aren't interested in tethering.
- This daemon wipes the data
partition of your device. (Source) This will be used if you remotely wipe your
phone via Exchange, or if you use Settings > General > Reset, or if you set your
device to wipe itself after a certain number of failed passcode entries. If you
don't use these features, you can disable this daemon.
- This daemon deals with provisioning profiles for ad-hoc app distribution. If that doesn't apply to you, or if you have no idea what that is, you can disable this daemon.
- Starts the AirPrint launch daemon process,
disable this if you don't use AirPrint.
- Used for Virtual Private Networks. Disable
this daemon if you do not use any VPNs.
- These daemons start up Spotlight Search. The Spotlight page will still be there, but nothing will show up when you start typing if they are disabled.
- This daemon allows you to use the
"iPad Camera Connection Kit".
- Starts the "Tweet from Youtube, Safari,
ect" process. Remove if you don't use the In-App Twitter addition.
- Deals with custom vibration
patterns. If you don't use those or you have an iPod touchy feel free to remove
- Disable these if you don't use Voice Controls.
- Disable if you don't use Voice Over Touch.
- Starts the actual Voice Services for Voice
Control. Also disable if you don't use Voice Controls.
- Logs errors when trying to connect to a WiFi network with Chinese characters in the name. Remove this if you don't live in

I can only disable 31 daemons
Not sure how to help with such little info. You might need to enable all stock daemons first and then run daemon tool extreme list or safe list in terminal, depending on which one it is that your editing, that's if you have edited either. Hope this helped. Lol
