    I just went to 2.1 with quickpwn and it erased all of the apps and all that I had from jailbreaking. But there is still 1gb of "other" when i plug my ipod into itunes...since i only have an 8gb and you only get 7gbs, ive used 6 for music, 400mb for appstore apps, but the rest is filled with "other"...on 2.0.2 i had still room to download stuff, now i dont im wondering if all my old suff was put somewhere else, making me have doubles or somehing...does any one else have this problem...or a solution?

    If you just upgraded, instead of restored, all your apps are still in the media partition from when cydia moved them. SSH in and delete it.

    When i looked in the stash folder(private/var/stash or something) there were two applications folders. One of them was from just then when i upgraded, and the other is the old one that got left there. I just deleted the old one and i got all my space back.

    1gb of apps is a lot, and if its in stash then id assume that there appstore apps and should have been copied back over to the ipod, i have noticed that 2.x takes more space up, used to have 7.54gb now i have 7.08gb, might not sound like a big difference but it is when you only have 7gb to play with
