How to Free up memory on your iPhone with Cleaner Pro [Jailbreak Tweak]

Do you want to free up memory/RAM on your iPhone?

A new jailbreak tweak called Cleaner Pro allows you to do just that. The developer claims it can free up more than 40% memory in less than 10 seconds.

The user interface of the jailbreak tweak is quite simple. When you launch the app it gives you real-time information about the free memory available. It breaks it down into 3 types: Active, Inactive and Wired.

It offers two options: Quick clean and Deep clean. Tapping on any of the option triggers the cleaning process and it shows the progress with a percentage indicator.


After the process is completed, it gives a popup message informing you how much memory was cleaned and how much time it took to complete the process.


As of now, we’re not really sure what’s the exact difference between the two options, but as you would expect, Deep Clean takes slightly longer.

You also have the option to trigger the Deep Clean or Quick Clean process automatically when you launch the app by turning on the On/Off toggle in Settings app (tap on the More button).


So if you feel that your jailbroken iPhone is slowing down because of the Winterboard themes, and tweaks that are always running in the background, you can use Cleaner Pro to free up memory without the need to respring or reboot your iPhone.

Cleaner Pro is available for free on Cydia. You can tap on the download link below to install it.

As always, let us know how it goes in the comments.

    Wonder what the difference in performance is between this and hitting Processes > Free up Memory from SBSettings .. I like the UI though and the options to have it clean automatically

  • Digger

    I think we can all see this in Cydia. Wouldn’t it be better to present something a little more in depth? Like, does it actually work and how is it different from the functionality in SBSettings? Who developed it? Has it been vetted? There is nothing here that I couldn’t have learned by installing it myself.

      Good points, we’ll update the post with more info shortly.

      Well, honestly I couldn’t find something like this by just searching cydia, but this post told me exactly what I needed to know before deciding to install.

    So it just deletes your stuff without asking if its the right things to delete?

      It doesn’t delete storage media on your device, it frees up memory on your RAM.

        Ah I see. My bad.

    I installed this app, selected auto quick clean. The app keeps auto off, i did a reboot and my iphone got stuck in recovery mode.

    Did a restore from itune but need to update to 6.1.4 and unable to JB now.

      Thanks for your comments, seems the app is still unstable. iPhoneHacks must test the apps before giving any recommendations or comments!

        We did test it as you will notice from the screenshots. It worked as advertised and did not face any issue.

        We however did not use the auto option as we preferred to free up memory manually.

          Not to be critical but you ‘used’ it rather than ‘tested’ it then. A test would surely have explored the functionality a little further.

    Works great. Really like the interface.

    Do Not Install, i did install and after just a “quick clean” got stuck on apple screen.
    thankfully after holding power and home button for a couple of times a got it back in safe mode, Uninstalled .
