    After updating to 4.3.1 and restoring my back up and then Jailbreaking with Redsn0w i now have 2 of each folder in /var/stash although the numbers on the end are different.

    I have deleted my old Themes folder from my last JB as nothing in there was being used by Winterboard as it was using the new Themes folder.

    Can any of the others be deleted?

    I dont plan on deleting anything. Its just all of the old stuff i had installed from cydia on my previouos Jailbreak. I think they may be just empty "ghost" files.

    here is a screen shot of the duplicate "themes" folders i have. The second one, (themes.Spxrd2) is my up to date current downloads from cydia.

    I deleted my older themes folder with no problems so i think you'll be alright in doing that, not sure about the rest though.

    last time around (4.1), i saw this, and cleverly deleted the folders with the extra text (ie Themes.vd3qwww). HUGE mistake, had to re-JB, fix everything...

    be careful (maybe copy the ORIGINAL folder to your computer, delete from phone, see how it goes. you can always SSH it back where it was).

    again, BE CAREFUL LOL... i had a horrible day with this.

    The "correct" folder is the one with .XDLJZXC crap on the end

    I know for a fact that the first set (themes.l3TCvV) isnt corrent. I tried editing a file to update a zipcode fo a theme. It did nothing. I went into the second (themes.Spxrd2) and made the correction and it worked.
