    So I loaded up iTunes and for the first time noticed the capacity of my Touch 8GB 2G, 6.81GB. Now I know that when they say 8GB its not actually 8, its less taking into account firmware updates and such, but this seems to be alot less, or is this normal? My iPod is JB by the way.

    Any info would be good. Thanks

    Yes, this is perfectly normal. It's because of firmwares and system files. Don't worry this is perfectly normal and has nothing to do with you being jailbroken.

    Ok thanks, I didnt think it was anything to do with being jailbroken, I just didnt realise the firmware and system files were so big, 1.2GB is alot of memory

    Yeah, mine is the same way. When I plug it into iTunes it says total capacity is 7 gigs and then with another 250 mb of firmware. I can't believe they can rip us off like that
