well I've seen those guides on here and other places that tell you how to disable daemons to save memory. they have the "do" list, the "do not" list and a few "maybe" lists. anyway I've messed around with launchctl and I was able to disable a few more. I have a 1g iPod touch and here's a tasklist readout: kernel_task launchd notifyd mDNSResponder configd sbsettingsd lockdownd mediaserverd fairplayd configd SpringBoard apsd TaskList that's only 11 processes required to make the iPod run without problems (at least problems that I know of). plus tasklist app and the sbsettings daemon. anyway this is the bare minimum for functionality. I thought I'd share my findings. BTW other daemons run but exit after like 20 seconds or less for instance SCHelper/installd/securityd so if you try and duplicate this wait a minute before listing processes [[BE CAREFUL]] it's pretty easy to kill your device this way.
