    With 2.1 installed, go to Settings/About/Legal and take a look.

    Good god!!!! If they left that off, you would gain a whole 1GB of storage.*

    * DISCLAIMER: For those who take every comment on this thread at face value. This is just a statement and does not warrant actually testing to see if it would save 1GB. :D

    So if you have a jailbroken iPhone could you SSH into it and delete that without any malicious repercussions?

    :edit:........ edit the misleading thread title

    I've noticed this massive section before and was shocked.

    I'm not sure what it means but there are quite a few companies listed in the iPhone's Legal section...such as Netsacpe, Intel, Hewlett-Packard, and Sun Microsystems. I find that odd. :confused:

    Honestly this can't be more than 20MB of space.

    Text is really nothing.

    Why is Carnegie Mellon in there?

    I love how they mention stuff that was copyrighted in 1981

    I remember looking at this on 1.1.4, but it is even larger now. Loading this file caused the most lag I have seen so far on 2.1. haha
