    if you get SBSettigns from cydia you can into the processes tab of it and turn off all unwanted apps which are running in the background. you can also hide the pre installed apple apps which come with the iphone using sbsetting. search for it on youtube, will find tutorials of how to install and use.

    critical services? dont think there is anything to show system related processes. i am yet to come across such an application that goes down to the operating system level.

    maybe terminal will let you run a ps command (if it's anything like linux), then you can chkconfig off whatever you want. I wouldn't recommend it though.

    Yeah it's not an app you have to openssh into your phone, and change or edit some files to do it

    i meant installing terminal could let you know whats running in the background. but i'm not sure what commands work on a mac based terminal.

    Yeah but I shouldn't have to use terminal....I just want to know which file I have to edit on the iPhone so I don't mess it up

    maybe best thing to do is to learn a bit about the file system. i see it's very similar to linux. Not sure where the processes upon boot up is contained though.
