6GB of "Other"
Well i got my iphone 3g last week, first thing i did was upgrade it to 2.1 and jailbreak it...it all works fine
i got 7 pages of apps, where 95% of them are from the appstore
today when i plugged my thing in it said it was updating all the songs/videos on the phone (300+) i thought that was weird but i let it go through
now when i plug it in, in ituens it says
1.41GB of Audio
4.34GB of Video
5.2 MB of photos
529.6MB of apps
and now theres 5.97GB of Other
I have no idea what this otehr could possibly be
the most used program the last 2 days was flycast radio, streaming a radio station
i SSH'ed to the phone and was browsing the files looking for anything massive, found nothing
does anyone have any ideas what this could be? and a easy solution of fixing this WITHOUT restoring and loosing all my contacts and application layouts, etc?
Dude, sorry there is no easy fix. There is a possible fix, but it involves your phone reseting everything. Other than that, a good clean Restore does the trick.

<-- Solved your problems? Made you laugh? Rep is good enough for me
I've seen this happen before. It could be due to an incomplete sync with itunes (where the iphone was disconnected before being able to perform a complete sync)
It creates temporay files that do not get deleted.
If you ssh into your iphone and delete everything in the following folder:
and then reboot your iphone, you should see the space freed up.
Let me know if it works.
yeah just delete and resync

scared me when it asked me to restore from backup
resyncing now, the other part started at 300mb and is increasing as stuff is getting added, but im assuming like u guys said its temp and will be removed after the sync?
edit: bah why is it showing the first post last in these forums? :/
alright another problem
about 10/30 of my apps no longer work, they are the ones that always use to work perfeclty, including facebook, etc
they would load and show the main page then crash right after
one app asn as i click it, a pop up msg appears saying
"The application 'WeDict' cannot be opened"
any suggestions? :/
Edit: Clicked sync again while in the aps section and everything is working amazing

One good way to get a visual on where the space is being used on your phone is to use the 'du' command via SSH.
I usually drop to the root with 'cd /' and then do 'du -h --max-depth=1' to get a list something like this:
So then I know that 6.6 gigs is in /private. Then I do 'cd /private' and run du again to see how the space breaks down in the folders under private... and so on.
That's how I found out that after upgrading to 2.1 (rather than restoring), the /private/var/stash folder had duplicates of everything. I just went in and removed the duplicates and freed up a lot of space.
