    Okay, I know this has been posted a million times, but when I search it says no results found and that Other can be searched because it's to common blah blah blah.

    So recently I opened up iTunes and noticed I had 3GB of other (3.84 to be exact) and other then that I have 3.04GB of music, 624.7MB of video, 7.1MB of photos and 930MB of apps. And there's now was I downloaded 3GB worth of content from cydia... How can I get rid of it?

    Well, it went down to 3.83 (was @ 3.84 in my OP) I uninstalled a bunch of things from cydia and that didn't seem to do anything! Ideas anyone?

    I've seen something before where some file may have been duplicated or something. But I can't fin the thread, it was similar to this. What's defined as "other" That usually takes up lots of space?

    I have 3gb of other too. This is just data from from cydia data eg roms, themes, mx tube videos, and downloadable stuff from dTunes. (in my case)

    edit: you can SSH to var/mobile/Library/Downloads and delete any downloaded data (from some apps)
