    I cant understand why my iPhone 5's memory keeps running out!

    I have added all my apps, music, videos and pictures up and it comes to 7.5GB.

    Jailbreak Tweaks cant be more than 250MB, I only have a few and the biggest one is the Glasklart Theme @ 51MB.

    The other 90% are less than 1MB and the other 10% less than 5MB with about 20 Tweaks in total.

    Even adding them up to 10GB, I should have around 3GB free on my 16GB iP5.

    However, the phone constantly alerts me saying I am running out of memory with about 30MB free.

    I have DELETED apps in the last few days without adding any other apps/music/videos/pictures/JB Tweaks etc however the memory continues to dwindle!

    Anyone got any answers?


    EDIT: In iTunes, it is showing 4.78GB worth of data in "Other".

    What is this?

    Restore and set up as "new". You'll lose the jailbreak, of course, if you're jailbroken.

    Tried to reset via my phone.

    It hanged and so I forced it out of it.

    Somehow though it did something as i got back 2.6GB of space.

    Didn't delete my JB or settings or anything!
