    I recently jailbroke my iPhone 4 on 4.1 with limerain. After playing around with it and installing winterboard and bitesms, i decided to restore and accidientally did it from backup. now i have about 300 mb of "other" data and my battery is draining way faster than it did before. I heard that this can be caused by parts of jailbroken apps left behind. Can anybody tell me where this stuff would be located in ifile so that i can remove it?

    Why not just do another restore and this time make sure to set up as new?

    ive done that. but the "other" is still there. which leads me to believe that parts of the apps are left stuck in there somewhere. but idk where to find them

    If you set up as new, there is no way anything from before is sticking around. How much "other" are you seeing? A small amount of other is normal and will always be there no matter what.
