    Hey guys,

    Ive been using Airblue Sharing for a while and it's working great.

    One thing I noticed is that when I received some songs from someone via bluetooth, they would get added to "Purchases" album on my Music app.

    No problem, just that when i decided to go to "All songs" area on the music app and delete it from there, the song name would still be visible and greyed out.

    Meaning that I can still see the name of those songs but they are all greyed out.

    I decided to delete plist file just to let my iphone start afresh for syncing with itunes .. but it didn't work :(

    What is the file that is storing these song names which I can delete?
    My phone is jailbroken hence it shouldn't be a problem trying to delete the media database file or whatever.. where these song names are placed.

    Moreover, I tried re-adding these exact songs to my phone via itunes. Itunes didn't have any trouble adding back, but my iphone gave an error asking me to check the error on itunes o_O

    Also, the songs I added did not show up on my phone.

    How do I start afresh? :(

    I can't restore my phone due to obv reasons. [using 7.1.1 jailbreak]

    EDIT: I had a totally "new" restore kept as a backup in itunes which I cross checked through ibackupbot.
    I did restore through this 7mb worth data but I still see the songs :(

    Settings -> music -> turn off "show all music"

    Not sure of that'll help

    Btw, the latest iOS version 7.1.2 is still jailbreakable

    Yeah I;ve been using that option of disabling show all music. (now it doesn't show anymore)

    I don't know how the song names are still there though. I don't think there are actual mp3 files so storage isn't a problem.

    I'm sticking with 7.1.1 only as 7.1.2 had some severe battery issues for me :(

    From 100% it went to 95% in just 5 mins.

    Thanks for the help!

    lol, those %'s are not diagnostic of battery draining issues.

    Haha but like.. the problem was it gave me wrong battery % indication.

    FOr instance, after using the phone for 10 mins, the battery would "die" fast.

    Let's say that it got to 92% after 10 min usage. When I decided to reboot the phone.. viola! It was back at 99%?

    It was driving me crazy :(

    When first removing from the charger overnight, the battery percentage indicator isn't accurate anywhere from 90%-100%

    That's from my experience

    could be that it just needs calibration among many other things ;)
