    Default how to free space on my iphone?
    Hey all, i hve had the joy of playing with a jailbroken iPhone (1st gen) for about a year now...(cant remember how long). and i have put a lot of apps on my 4gig phone and deleted apps a lot. ATM it is FW 2.0 with Cydia and appstore apps. it lags quite a bit and crashes sometimes too. i was getting a 'low on memory' message a while ago but i ignored it because when i plugged into itunes, i still had a gig of free space. now i am getting that message everyday...'low on memory...your phone may crash'... type messages. right now there is about 1.5 gigs free. anyone know any ideas on how i can fix this?
    I have thought about using SSH with Transit and just going file folder by folder and deleting things, but i dont know if i would delete something important or not. any ideas would be great. thanks in advance.

    You get a low memory warning because the phone's memory is partitioned. Around 500megs is for OS apps and that. And the other 3 and a half gigs is for music, videos and pictures.

    If you pwn the latest firmware you have the option to change the partition size to allow more memory for the OS. I put mine to 550meg and i havent had a low memory error since.
