    Hey everyone, been here since it was "iPod-Touch Fans" but never did register

    I have this problem with my iPod Touch 2G and I think I know what happened but I have no idea on how to fix it.
    Thing is, my ipod was 3.1.2 MC jailbroken and I guess the jailbreak + the firmware itself takes up space on the root partition, but now I've upgraded to iOS4, didn't jailbreak (well I can't, MC) and now it shows me that capacity is 6.8 GB, I'm no expert but iOS4 can't POSSIBLY take that much!
    I think it's the previous jailbreak and all of it's remains, but I have no way of deleting it since it's not jailbroken.

    Thanks in advance

    Yeah, you can't just delete the software from a jailbreak. If you want to get rid of it, then just restore. Technically, I think that you were supposed to do that anyway before upgrading a jailbroken device, because the upgrade can sometimes screw up the root system. This would cause a lot of lag, apps to crash, etc. But if everything is working fine for you now, then you don't really have to restore.

    ya this guy pretty much covered it all. anyways, my capacity is also 6.8gbs although it used to be 7.3 or something. I think it actually is iOS 4.0 taking up all that space :/

    Format the entire iPod and start fresh: Restore.

    I thought that Restore was just restore back up

    I restored, it didn't help at all, now I'm sad.

    4.0 is a larger firmware than previous firmwares. When you restore you want to start out as new iPod.

    I did say start out as new iPod and still same story :/
    If that's the iOS 4 taking so much space, then it's not really an iPod 8gb is it?
    Ohh and I have 189mb of other, is that the 3.1.2 jailbreak?

    When you went to 4.0 did you hit the update button or the restore button? If you just updated then yes some of the jailbreak data is still there.
