Thread: Not enough free space - iPhone 3G Jailbroken

    Default Not enough free space - iPhone 3G Jailbroken
    Before you flame me, I have searched and it is all old info, I've installed BossTool, and it didn't help.

    Here are some screenshots of what I'm experiencing, can anybody assist? Yes that is a weight loss hypnosis app, don't judge me!

    did you happen to upgrade rather than restore firmware at some point?

    everytime you upgrade and jailbreak you lose space because it doesnt copy over old jailbroken files. you need to restore to make sure your phone has a clean slate

    Always restore with cfw.Don't hit the upgrade button on itunes.Everytime when you hit it,you will lose about 500 mb. space till you restore it again...

    A few weeks ago my battery was dying within a few hours every day. I knew that some process was running out of control. So I did a restore of the FW erasing everything. I then re jailbroke it. In iTunes I went from about 500 MB of "other" to around 200.

    Hit the relocate fonts button and it will free up some space.

    I did, and it got me 100MB!!! So does this all mean that when I'm installing apps via cydia or **********, that they are already going to the user partition? And if so, what the hell is taking up the 400MB on the primary partition?

    I havent installed winterboard in a while haha i like a faster phone ,
    are you familiar with openSSH? and ssh'ing into your iPhone?
    if so, check the Megan Fox theme you have installed, and see what folders are there, it might be wise to delete ui images folder if ya dont want them, as these images hog the phone's RAM. It wont fix ya space problem, but it will make your iPhone quicker .

    ui images are the ones that came with the phone? if i delete them and i wanna restore my phone will the come back ? or r u talking about the ones that are in the theme folder? and is there n e way to get more space and more ram lol i am kinda new to this

  13. #13
    how much slower does winterboard make your phone?... im just using transparent dock and no docked labels (because im using reflective dock) does that kill my ram?


    iPhone? ... No?... MYphone!!!

    okay well maybe you should download SBSettings off cydia, it is a pretty awsome app that also tells you the amount of avalable ram. currently, i have a iphone that doesnt have winterboard installed, just the stock theme, and i have 49mb free memory (RAM). When you have a theme installed, check to see how much memory you have left. The less the amount of ram, the slower your iphone will be.

    @sickrex05: the UIImages folder in your THEME, (that you select in winterboard), is what i was talking about, these are the images that work in other apps etc that slow down your phone a lot more. If you SSH into your phone and delete the UIImages foler in your theme, then your phone should be a lot faster.

    Persoanlly, when my iPhone gets really slow i restore it to a new phone, i hate a slow iphone haha, i used to love all the themes but having a slow phone took its toll.
