    hello everyone,
    so today i installed iTunes backup manager, and was looking at the backed up files on my ipod touch's backup and i saw some .plist files that are related to the jailbreak apps. For example, i found something about sbsettings although everything related to sbsetting is deleted from my ipod. all what i have from cydia is the pdf patch, but i found alot of stuff that are related to apps ive installed and removed before from cydia, so im just wondering, does anyone knows how to delete those files? if u r familiar to itunes backup manager, i checked all the files and unchecked those ones related to cydia, and restored from that backup (without restoring ipod to factory settings first)
    after that, i deleted all backups on my computer, and created a new backup after restoring of that backup, and opened itunes backup manager again, and i saw those files related to cydia again. so does anyone know how to delete them?
    thanks

    The backups hold some info from various plists around the iPod that have been modified by jailbreak apps. It's normal and shouldnt affect the battery life

    You shouldn't restore from a backup of a jailbroken iPod. It leave's some jailbreak data.

    The extra jailbreak data wont be draining your battery. You dont need to delete it

    im sure that the sbsetting thing is draining my battery, cuz when i first installed sbsettings, the battery drain started, but when i removed it, nothing had changed.
    so im sure it is draining battery

    The fact that you are 'sure' that it is sbsettings means you will notice a difference with or without it, but its just a placebo effect
