    Default [1.1.3] remove crap files

    hi everybody
    i just upgraded a OOB 1.1.2 to 1.1.3 using the installer. I don't know what happened but first time the upgrade did not go through, so i plugged back the iphone to the pc and for some reasons itunes asked me to recover the backup to the iphone, so that is what i did.
    after that i finally did the upgrade but now i have 1,89GB occupied by "other" as itunes says. I am 100% sure that 1,8GB was the amount i had before the upgrade, so i am assuming that is either the old backup or the other files that are not recognized. So now basically i have 1,8GB less on my iphone.
    How can i remove those old files and where are they? I have everything installed, i can ssh to the iphone, i just don't know where the files are and what i should remove.
    THanks anyone!

    thanks for your prompt reply but i still have problems
    i went here
    /var/mobile/Media/iTunes_Control/Music
    and deleted all the files

    then went here
    /var/root/Media/iTunes_Control/Music
    but there is no such folder
    there is only
    /var/root/Library

    and i still have all the data there on the iphone... where else can i look?
    thanks!
