    I only have 40MB left on my iPod Touch according to SBSettings, I have heard of moving your apps to the Media Partition, any guides on how to do this on my Touch 2G MC 8GB? P.S Firmware 3.1.2
    Thanks

    The storage is the amount of space left on your iPod-the 6064 on /var is what you're interested in. So you've got about 6GB left. (6064MB)

    The 'available memory' is the amount of RAM that's free on your iPod. (Yes, iPods have RAM, just like computers)

    ok heres the deal. "/" is the root directory only made for the apple boot items and the other standered apps, if you have saved data on the "/" directory move it to the other mounted drive "/var" or any child directory. iPhone has two virtual drives, one is "/" the other is mounted in "/var" "/var" according to you has 6040mb this drive is for all your media like music and app store apps.
