    Just created an account here to post this tutorial. Basically i deleted all redundant textinput bundle for languages that are of no use to me.

    What you need.
    1. JB-ed, SSH-able iDevices
    2. winSCP or anything similar

    search the forums for tuts on SSH if you have no idea what it is.

    DISCLAIMER: i personally have tried this method for around a week w/o problem. i cannot guarantee that this method will make your device self detonate when used

    STEPS:
    1.navigate to /System/Library/TextInput/
    2.select all folders except for TextInput_en.bundle. (or the language/keyboard you are using)
    3.copy them to a folder on your pc for backup. (IMPT! ALWAYS BACKUP!)
    4.select those folders again on winscp and hit the delete key
    5.enjoy a ~20mb increase in free space on the root partition

    PS: i suggest not deleting TextInput_emoji.bundle if you use emoji. (NOT CONFIRMED)

    CHEERS!

    UPDATE:


    Heres a screenshot of my deleted textinputs. amounting up to 55mb
