    Alright i finally JB my pod about a week ago.. and i was playing around with Cydia.. and went into the "Packages" area of it.. and i noticed a ton of stuff was installed.. here are a few that i think i dont need or will never use:

    - adv-cmds(finger, fingerd,last,lsvfs,md,ps) <--- what the hell is that?
    - ARM Floating point(library used by older iphone software) <-- i have a iTouch?
    - Berkeley DB (Oracles embeddable database engine) <--- sounds important?
    - Bourne-Again Shell (the best shell ever) <-- is it??
    - bzip2 (compression utility) <--- k?

    Now i can go on for about another 10 or more.. just guessing.. but do i really need all this crap??? when i try delete some it says not to.. and well i dont..

    So any advice? thanks and appreciated!

    you need it all, it takes up almost no space so just leave it all installed. its all there for a reason.
