    Unhappy [1.1.3] Weird Free-space problem?

    Since performing the JB to 1.1.3, there are some weird things going on with the reported free space on the phone in the "Other" category.

    Even though I only have BSD, Installer, OpenSSH and Term vt-100 installed, which totals about 7.5mb, iTunes (7.6) reports that I have 192.2mb of "Other" stuff installed.

    I installed BossTool but that reports that I have zero space left.

    I tried to find out how big the "Other" stuff should total with a clean phone but can't find the information anywhere.

    I've had a sniff around the phone via SSH to see if there's any obvious stuff left over from the 1.1.3 JB (I used the Official Method as detailed on this forum) but nothing lept out. As a desperate measure, even though I didn't use the Installer method to update, I installed the clean-up script which removes the 300mb install file(s). Nothing much happened and the free/used space remains exactly the same.

    Is 180-190MB about right or is there something wrong. If so, anyone got tips on how to rectify it?

    Thanks

    Update

    Here's a twist. Plugging the phone into another computer (my MacBook) which is still running iTunes 7.4.2, the "Other" stuff totals only 32.2mb.

    So:

    iTunes 7.6 = 192mb of installed stuff
    iTunes 7.4.2 = 32.2mb of installed stuff

    Anyone else getting this?

    I don't know which one to trust. Is there a unix command that can report free space? Maybe I can find out in Terminal what the real figure is....

    And another detail that seems to point to the 1.1.3 update.

    I just tried my girlfriends phone. She has a 1.1.2/jailbroken/AnySIM phone (exactly like mine before I tried the 1.1.3 update).

    Plugging hers into the computer that runs iTunes 7.6 shows she has 156.2mb of "Other" installed. Plugging it into my MacBook running iTunes 7.4.2 shows......she has 156.2mb of "Other" stuff installed. Exactly the same.

    Change the Applications Folder Partition

    Only for Firmware 1.1.3

    --------------------------------------------------------
    cd /
    cp -pr Applications /var/mobile
    mv Applications Applications.old
    ln -s private/var/mobile/Applications /Applications
    rm -rf Applications.old
    --------------------------------------------------------

    I used BossTool which did the following:

    Moved Applications from / (default) to /private/var/applications

    Moved /Library/Ringtones (default) to /private/var/Ringtones

    Moved /System/Library/Fonts (default) to /private/var/Fonts

    ...is this going to be an issue? Everything works fine and BossTool says I now have over 100MB free on the OS partition. is /private/var/xxx wrong location?

    Thanks for the tip but I'm not actually concerned about running out of space on the Apps partition, just about the fact that iTunes seems to be incorrectly reporting the free space.

    I get 190 MB or so Other in iTunes 7.6 after Dev Team soft upgrade as well. I did find that restore.zip (160 MB or so) was left in /private/var/ after the upgrade, deleted it. But I didn't plug phone into iTunes before I did this to see how much was used before I erased the 160 MB file.

    So 190 MB Other iTunes 7.6 after soft upgrade and deleting restore.zip.

    Used Windows with modded install.sh that would use a pre-downloaded 1.1.3.ipsw intead.

    1.0.2 OTB IPSF
    3.9 BL
    04.02.13_G baseband (retained 1.1.2)

    So this means the only current solution is changing the partitions and have less space for music etc ? or am i not following ?
    OTB iPhone 1.1.2@1.1.3 // 8 GB Week 45

    Jailbreaked/Activated: Yes
    Unlocked: Using EasyiSim with Halebop [SWEDEN]
    All works
