    Hello

    My iPod touch 16Gb is now Jailbreaked and works fine.

    However, iTunes 7.4.2 reports that I have 3GB of file in "Others" category, and I don't know what the hell these files are.

    How can I get ride of those 3GB files ?

    Thx

    You are lucky..
    last time the jailbreak failed and used 7.4 GB.. 300MB left..
    the only way is to restore the system

    What probably happened is that you didn't do a clean restore before you jailbroke and now it's either created a duplicate of your existing library (music/movies) on there or it's made your library inaccessible to the player and is thus counted in "other".

    Best way to keep things clean and proper is with a clean restore and re-jailbreak.

    Just out of interest, how much memory does jailbreaking take up.

    You don't have Swap Tunes installed, do you? If so the 3GB you noticed could be your other library.
