    So I was going though my usual photo dump that I do every couple of months when my phone fills up and I plugged into iTunes just to check what my other data was at and as the title states its 2.6GB. Is that pretty normal? That is after I ran icleaner too. I'm jailbroken on 6.1 iphone 5 16gb. What exactly uses that space? I looked and I saw some people saying its texts and pictures attached to texts. I went and deleted those too. Just wondering what else could be using that space?! Thanks in advance!

    It is used by all sorts of stock Apple and jailbroken files.

    It is very difficult to know what can safely be removed and what cannot.

    There are numerous explanations of this: search here and on the Internet.

    There's a bunch of suggestions at this link. Dhlizard is right. There are a bunch of causes which have been discussed a ton. You can start here though and see if this helps.

    I had over 3.5GB of other. I tried all the suggestions I could find last week by searching Google. I manages to get it down to under 3GB but nothing else worked. I final gave up and restored my phone to the latest and now am under 1GB. The only thing I had a JB for was for iBlacklist. I'll get it back whenever 7.0 gets a JB, till then I am happy I have my space back on a 16GB phone.

    You could have used semi-restore or iLEX RAT and kept your JB....

    I'm not sweating over it, seriously.

    I had bought an iPad Mini that had 6.0.2 on back in June. JB it and ran it for a weeks till I discovered all the bugs that I had using iTunes Match. Upgraded to the latest and have been happy ever since. I don't need anything a JB can give me when it comes to reliability and being bug free.

    My ipad, 4S and 5 all run bug free, problems rarely are because of the JB, some tweaks might be bad but not the JB itself.

    The iPad problem were not because of the JB but because it was running 6.0.2. Upgrading fixed them.
