    Hi all.

    I know this might be a slightly stupid question and not in the right place, but it's probably a simple answer as well, I just don't know that answer.

    Anyway, can anyone tell me what the orange bar "Other" is?

    Is there a way to clear this "Other"? I have a 16gb and about 6gb of "Other". I should say, is there a way to get rid other this cached info WITHOUT doing a restore?

    Sometimes when I see that the orange bar is becoming too big, I just sync after a fresh respring and it gets adjusted accordingly. Ive had 7 gb of "other" that were Apps that didnt sync correctly to iTunes and showed as Other, but after more syncs, the numbers went down to 500 MG and always stays at something near that value.

    Stuff that iTunes is incapable of identifying. So Cydia apps whatnot, sources, themes...

    It caches music and apps without that other you would end up spending more space and battery than with it. 100mb is about Cydia and jailbreak stuff oter 200 is cache
