    I read the other thread in the forum about the guy who had the same problem, but a solution wasn't really found. I've currently got some "Other" orange space taken up under my capacity bar, and I have no idea how to remove it. I've tried restoring it, but that didn't help at all.

    Does anyone have any suggestions that could help me out?

    Thanks muchly in advance.

    Well you can't remove it all. If you only have a small amount you don't have any issue. Others had several GB's because they ended up with two copies of their libraries.

    Not necessarily firmware - if you've restored once and jailbroke, check the file dates in the /var/stash directory. If it's older than the last time you jailbroke, it's probably files from the older install that can be trashed. Also check /var/mobile/Media for things that aren't in the iTunesControl directory that could be taking up 'other' space.

    Hi
    I have 2.73 GB of "Other" on my capacity bar...how do I remove some of it? Do I just have to remove some album art?

    Please don't bump old threads... it's just annoying.
