    I have an jailbroken iPhone 3GS 16GB and had some issues when trying to sync large sized apps (Gameloft games mostly) Like the new Driver game that came out for example, I just can't seem to put it on my phone. The game is 405MB, and the first time it told me I didn't have enough memory on my phone it was displayed in iTunes that I had 600MB free. I started deleting some stuff off my phone and managed to get it up to 900MB. But I still can't put this game on my phone. It also says when I go to settings on my phone that I have 900MB available. Is it just a display error, cause this is really confusing the hell out of me. I had the same problem with Modern Combat, I had to free up 600MB to put a 200MB game on my phone, should I just keep deleting stuff or is there something I can do so it can actually tell me how much memory I have? I know Cydia has one of those things that tells me how much memory I have, but it's not working atm... not that that would probably help.

    Where bunnies are welcome.
    You need double the space of the file you are trying to install. So, for the 405 MB file you need 910. The reason for this is that a temporary file is created while installing that matches the size of the file you are installing.
