    Either SSH into your touch and remove all the folders you don't want. Or you can buy or download a program called iphone drive. When you plug in your touch and run the program, it allows you to almost any folder. Interestingly, I used to be jailbroken, but I bought the Jan. upgrade and have been "legit" since. When I ran iphone drive, iphysics and some ebooks were still on there. I thought that was interesting.

    Force Update might not erase things, Force restore should nuke it so it as fresh and pure as new fallen snow.

    IMHO, and as I dimly recall from my restore back to 1.1.1 to re-jailbreak....
