    Default 'Other' taking up gb!
    What is that all about? Have lost 1/4 of my memory to it.

    I've removed all my apps, and it stayed.

    So removed all my music and still it stayed.

    Making it a damn pain in the *** to load anything onto the phone.

    Any ideas? I'm running 6.1.1 JB.

    Thanks

    Pete

    Had a feeling that was the case.

    Any idea what causes it?

    Also if I restore my phone, won't it update to 6.1.2 adn therefore I won't be able to JB.

    Yeah, Other is the iOS, JB apps n all app data..sometimes iOS n iTunes misrepresents what is what, and sometimes it fixes itself with manual reboots n resync with iTunes, but usually only way to fix is restore.. If ur JB, download n run iCleaner to see what u can free up

    Do you have a lot of apps/tweaks from Cydia downloaded? That might be the case. And usually when you uninstall a package through Cydia, sometimes not every file is deleted. I go through my iPhone with iFile and make sure every file is deleted. Most Cydia apps/tweaks are usually in /var/mobile/Library/.
