    Jailbreak seems to have gone ok, except that almost half of my total available storage space is gone.

    This is a 64GB iPhone 6s Plus iOS 10.2. I have very few tweaks installed. Basically just sped up animations. Also iCleaner. Installed Kodi, it crashes in boot, so removed it. Beyond that I've done nothing.

    It may be related to the stashing thing that was a big issue with the last iOS 9 jailbreak.

    Just guessing, I don't really know.

    I don't know what that means. Lol. Stashing?

    From what I read on reddit: Traditional stashing would normally have Cydia move several folders with iOS system components (Apps, Wallpapers, Ringtones, etc) to /var/stash to make space on the system partition. Basically Cydia would normally stash folders Apple placed there for iOS. This has broken on iOS 8.3 and newer and has thus required patcyh to work. Patcyh, however, requires a fully working untether, and hence traditional stashing is dangerous in a semi-untethered environment.

    Hmmm. Annoying. I was secretly hoping a reboot would fix it (despite what I just read implying it wouldn't), but it did not. I should probably just restore to 10.2 and wait for a bulletproof JB to come out. I seriously dig the speed increase but idk that it's worth 30 gigs of storage fornwho knows how long.

    Restoring via dfu is the best option, correct? I realize I could read, and I ultimately should lol. Being overzealous got me here, after all.

    It's not necessary (DFU mode) but I find since I made it a part of my process that things just go much smoother. I also don't have to worry about past jailbreak pieces coming back to haunt me as doing the restore via DFU mode wipes out all that.

    Just do a backup first, restore/upgrade as new via DFU and then restore from your backup.

    Try using Disk Pie to see what is taking up so much room? It is a paid package though. It was never officially updated for iOS 9 but it still seemed to work just fine on iOS 9.x. I imagine it would be the same on iOS 10

    Won't let my pay for anything on 10 due to cydia flagging the OS/JB as potentially unstable
