    Ok, heres the situation;

    I've had to restore my iPod touch (2G, 16GB, FW 3.0 Jailbroken) a couple times. However, I noticed that the stuff I downloaded from Cydia are still sitting in my System partition. I cannot access them either. This is a problem as I now only have 50MB left and some themes (iLlumine) take up upto 25MB

    DFU restore is supposed to clean up pretty much any files that aren't apples. So after you restore, you'll have a completely clean iPod that shouldn't have any jailbreak files on it. then you can rejailbreak.
