    the "other" is the second partition of the iphone, if im not mistaken. u need those files in order for your phone to run. so leave it alone...

    noo your not understanding what i'm asking...

    what i'm trying to clear out are the apps that seem to have not gotten erased from 1.1.4that cannot be used in 2.0 and i can't access them to delete them. and for some odd reason when i got my 3g and hit restore from itunes it added those files to my 3g as well?

    Its hard to see that no one else is having this issue ?? or no one has noticed i guess?

    You wouldn't have any Apps from 1.14. For firmwares 1.14 and under, iTunes did not perform a backup of the application directory. So when you upgraded, even if you performed a "restore from backup" through iTunes, the old Apps from 1.14 would not have been put back.

    Additionally, when you jailbreak 2.0, Cydia moves your built-in Applications, Fonts and Ringtunes to the Media partition. This is what makes up the bulk of your 302MB "other" amount.
    Get "iPod & iTunes for Dummies", it'll change your life.
