    Hi, So i recently jail broke my iphone 4s and i noticed something odd. In ifile it says i have 996.3mb left of free space but in my settings it says i have 796mb left.

    which one is correct?

    For me, iFile says I have under 1GB sometimes, when I know I have clear over 5GB left, so I would trust settings more.

    iFile is likely looking at space that has been written over at least once and adding it to the total of used space.

    Settings and Cydia (under the manage tab) give a more accurate estimate of what is not currently being used.
