    I would like to remove the unecessary ones:

    Activator
    DisplayStack (is this okay to disable?)
    LockInfo
    LockInfo Mail (don't use the mail portion, okay to disable?)
    LockInfo Phone (using an ipod touch, i dont need this right?)
    Preference Loader (no idea what this does)
    SpringBoard Access
    YourTube
    gremlin
    libhide
    libhidestatusbar
    sandcastle
    sandcastleclient

    i know gremlin, sandcastle, sandcastleclient all deal with yourtube, if i disable them, will yourtube still work?

    Yourtube won't work.

    Preference Loader is Jailbreak Apps in the Settings.app.

    Technically speaking, you could disable all of them. If you think about it, you didn't have any of them before jailbreaking. So they could remove some jailbreak features but won't have a huge effect on anything.

    If you're gonna disable the plugin, then you might as well delete the addon all together. Displaystack sounds like something to do with icons, so if you disable it you'll lose your icon hacks.

    You might have more luck disabling/deleting launch dæmons instead of disabling plugins.

    libhide is a major need for most tweaks/apps you you get from Cydia.

    says gremlins for yourtube.


    anyway, i dont think i have anything related to icons on my ipod.

    how do you go about removing the mobilesubstrates if i dont need them? i.e. the lockinfo phone/mail part.

    I'd just remove the tweak, as disabling it in mobile substrate with render the tweak pretty much useless. As the warning in SBSettings says, BE CAREFUL.
