Storage Problems

So, I have been pulling my teeth out with this for a couple of days now. I have a 16GB iPhone 5. When I go to Settings > General > Usage > Manage Storages - it says I'm using 12GB and have 662MB free, with all of the apps I have installed below and how much space they take up. Well, after adding it all up, all of the apps combined are only taking up 2.448GB

I am jailbroken with 8.1.2 firmware and have some tweaks installed, nothing too major. But my main question is, how can I get a break down of ALL of my storage, not just apps? Like a full overview of everything installed and how much space it's taking up on my device?

I know the firmware takes up a huge chunk of storage but not 10GB worth, I mean come on!

Can somebody please help me with this before I am toothless?

Thanks in advance!

See if you plug it into iTunes and what that says about space. Usually there's this "other" space where attachments, temporary files, and other things gets stored, and that can take up a lot of space sometimes.
