/var/mobile/media/ApplicationArchives WTF???

Discussion in 'iPod touch' started by deleted account, Dec 19, 2009.

  1. I noticed a large portion of my iPod touch (in the other category) being taken up by other. I searched the problem and could not find any solutions that fitted my problem.

    So I looked through my folders and disccovered that apart from the applications directory (/var/mobile/applications) the "applicationarchives" directory took up the most room!!!!
    WTF! it contained all of the apps I had ever got off the AppStore in large zip folders!

    Is this directory needed at all!!??? (yes my iPod touch is jailbroke ). I've only got 90.1MB left and I really want to get some more apps!! (I've got my eye on that awesome looking NOVA game by gameloft
