    Hey guys. I need to download something about 6.25 GB.
    Not saying what.
    Anyways, I have basically cleaned out my iPod 8gb to make room.
    Still need another 700 MB ish.
    Now in iTunes it says i have 1gb of "other" on the memory bar thingamajig.
    How do I get rid of this gb, or at least some of it?
    I dont think I have many/any videos or roms... and ideas?

    you can't. the 1gb is the OS! if you jailbroken, your cydia stuff too.

    Well, I know that it's never 8 gb - but there is a capacity of 7.1 GB which EXCLUDES OS, so I should be able to, with deleting get almost all that 7.1 GB. I dont need all, just about 6 and a half. As of now I have about 6.1
    Almost there...

    Ok I've deleted literally everything I think I can besides like 5 apps that take total 100 mb
    I found some TouchDJ stuff n whatnot
    Im up to 6.3 gb...
    And I've deleted everything I really can...
    Ill try cydia and be done, should be enough.
    ------------------double post merged------------------
    ARGH for some reason it went back down to 5.9 free.
    I have maybe 20 jailbroken things, but they DEFINATELY do not add up to a gb
    SB settings, supreme prefs, and maybe 3 themes is all I have.
    Any ideas?!

    Tried that, seeing nothing 0.o this is confusing...
    Can you think of any JB apps that take up a lot of space?
    That I might not think would?

    Cydia and the OS set partitions themselves, but then you have to take into account what the manufacturer calls a GB.
