Thread: "Other" data after removing jailbreak

    Default "Other" data after removing jailbreak
    Sorry if this has been posted before, couldn't find any info after searching.

    I had my iPad jailbroken on 3.2 and then did a regular update to 4.2.1 since I didn't feel the need for the jailbreak anymore (wasn't using any of the apps or features). One of the apps I had installed was Wiki2Touch which used about 5GB of storage for the database. I assumed that doing an official update would remove all data related to jailbreaking but it appears that there is 5.4GB of "Other" data being used according to iTunes.

    Is there any way to remove this data without re-jailbreaking or deleting all iPad content and starting over?

    Thanks!

    I am sure you can delete them through ssh into your ipad and go look for it.

    How would I ssh in without being jailbroken?

    Then you can't, apple will not let you go to the root of the system.

    This is why jailbreaking comes into play.

    Try looking at Itunes, see if you can uncheck anything from there.

    So then you're saying I either need to jailbreak again or "Erase all Content and Settings" in the reset menu in the iPad settings? Will that even erase the "Other" content?

    Jailbreak it, ssh into your ipad and look for the contents. Try restoring again and setup as a new ipad to see if you get the full storage.

    I suppose, I just didn't feel like doing the tethered 4.2.1 jailbreak since I'm not going to use any of the benefits.
