Thread: 84 mb left?

  1. #1
    Default 84 mb left?
    i have the 4gb iphone with the installer.app
    when i click on it it showes me the menu (install update uninstall etc..)
    at the bottom it says only 84mb left thought it was a 4gig phone. I have no media on the phone at all so i dont understand why its only 84mb left

    I am having the same problem. I have over a gig left of empty space on my iphone, and before when I had 1.0.2 I have about 100mb on installer, now I only have about 10mb. Must have been something when I jailbreaked and upgraded to 1.1.1

    I have v 1.0.2 I'm reluctant to upgrading
    to 1.1.1 LOL
    I connected to my phone using shftp over wifi and deleted themes and just crap that were installed with the installer and it still shows 84 mb oh when I got my phone and went to the installer it was showing 104.04 mb

    Don't get confused between the storage space and the file system. The iPhone has 128MB of user accessible space for its operating system. Every time you install a new app, it takes away from that 128MB.

    Your Music, Videos, Pics, etc are what use up the remaining Gigs of storage.

    That mb that it shows relates to a set amount of space set aside for apps and stuff and has nothing to do with overall available storage space.

    Check around, if you're phone isn't showing it's full 8gb you didn't follow the tutorial right. There are talks about this ALL OVER these forums for example here: http://www.modmyi.com/forums/showthread.php?t=9665

    Sorry for the rant, I need to sign off these forums for a while it's frustrating to try to help only to have people not read your stuff.
