    I been searching for hours, I tried the suggested guides, i deleted a few but i still cant track it all down and i dont want to delete something i dont know.

    Itunes shows 2.6 GBs used as OTHER, everything else has been removed (All apps, videos, music, photos)

    How do you guys delete files listed as Other in itunes, ive read its files that get corrupted on jb devices and just get tossed aside. I tried looking into a "erase all content" that doesnt work cuz it locks up and hitting restoring in itunes doesnt work cuz it asks me to update and then restore.

    I am giving away my ipad and i wanted to wipe everything and leave the jb or have the ability to re-jb. i cant do that with 2.3 gbs randomly missing.

    Does restore behave differently when in DFU? If its thru itunes im sure it asks u to update.

    I am using white ipad 2 16gb wifi only, 4.3.3 using comex's

    Help is greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.

    just do a dfu restore. it restores the ipad back to the default settings.

    open cydia and see at the top if you have 4.3.3 shsh blobs saved. if you do then restore pointing iTunes to 4.3.3 ipsw
