    So, starting yesterday my iPod start to glitch up. Once in a while the screen would be unresponsive and I would have to reboot, after that it would take 45 mins to boot up. That happened Twice yesterday.

    Before going to sleep I usally check how many GB I have, I had 2.1 GB left. When I woke up I got a message saying that I was low on Disk Space, According to my iPod I had 0 Bytes left. So I was like WTf? I deleted all my apps. And Still it said 0 bytes. I just what was taking up the space, and it was this 'Other' Section. I knew it was for the firmware, and jailbroken stuff. Before I had about 1.16 GB of 'Other' stuff. Now everytime I deleted and app or a theme the 'Other' section would get bigger. It ended to being 3.3GB of 'Other's and the rest was Music.

    So I just restored my iPod, but can anyone explain this?

    No I found out it was something about Rock sending out a Mega gigabyte file something like that, there's a thread in the Firmware 3.1 section about it.

    I was going to restore my iPod anyways, it was running 12MB (RAM) all the time even with VM.
