Thread: Free up Space on Iphone
12-26-2007, 01:42 AM #1Free up Space on Iphone
I have an 8 gig iphone (1.1.2) jailbroken which shows roughly 1 gig of "other" info under itunes (7.5). Is there anyway to free up some of this space? I have already deleted alot of old emails which didnt seem to make much difference. any ideas, suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

my apps are sendsong, sendfile,wallpaper,voicenotes, books (kjv bible only),blackjack, nes + a few roms, summerboard, customize, and services. I have three extra ringtones and no wallpaper(s).unless i am missing something, 1Gig sounds way high.

Did you use SwapTunes or SwapPhoto by any chance?

I lost over .5 gig on a sync that was interrupted. I was in the process of sync-ing a movie. I've gone into the directory on the iphone (mobile finder), but cannot find where videos are stored nor where the incomplete file is located. I've tried everything but a "restore" to free the space.

actually i do have swaptunes on my phone. sorry it was hidden using customize. i tried it once and couldnt get it to work. (or maybe I did ) does swaptunes create two directories? how would i fix this? thanks
My problem is fixed! Uninstalled SwapTunes, SSHed to itunes control2 folder and deleted all the old music present. i now have 156 mb in the "other" category of itunes. thanks to jodiedicie!!

i read about a custom fw the other day that repartitions your phone to yield a gig on the smaller partition (double what pwning gives you). i'm tired of restores right now, and the new os is coming soon, so i prolly won't try it right now. just thought i'd mention it here.
