    Do you think it is safe to delete all the language projects ( .lproj folders)? Of-course I will keep English and Swedish (I’m from sweden).

    And do you think I can delete the “EDGESettings.bundle” and “BluetoothSettings.bundle”?

    what for???? i would definately not start deleting random files

    i do not even see a reason that you would want to do this other than space, and the amount of space you gain is no where worth the risk of deleting stuff you arent familiar with

    Well excuse me for not beeing an expert :/
    But I'm not that stupid, I have everything backed up from before the hack. Just thought that since it's no problem to delete languagefiles from the os x it should not be a problem on the touch.

    Thanks anyway!

    He is right in a way. The files are not all used such as bak logs ect will need to be cleaned. Even some files we could get away from using. Once people start running out of space 300mb is not alot its gonna be time for clean up. A new guide to file deletion and clean up my not be far off.

    i was thinking it would be safe to delet all the bluetooth related and phone related software too, since neither of these devices are on the iPoT. also, the dropped call tones and such could be removed.

    Just because you don't think that the files are necessary, does not mean that they are not.

    It is NOT safe to start deleting files just because they're "for the iPhone." For all you know, one or more programs on the touch may still be relying on those files.
