    My wife has just upgraded her jailbroken 32Gb 3g ipad-2 from 4.3.3 to 5.0.1 .. as she wanted to do the 5.0.1 jailbreak

    After restoring everything from itunes , she noticed that the "others" content using up her memory about 5.8 Gb, while her apps only 1.58Gb ..

    Not much on her photos nor on audio or books .. The highest is her "others" at 5.8 Gb ..

    Leavin her free capacity storage now at only 17.8 Gb

    Is this some kind a problem needs to be addressed to ? Or is it normal because the 5.0.1 system taken up that much of capacity ??

    She wants to jailbreak her 5.0.1, but decide to wait til ahe gets the answer to this

    thank you for the response .. i figure so too .. re install is the best solution .. and also aside from the "other" irregularity, the contact app missing the "edit" and. "+". tab after upgrading .. (which i addressed the issue on a different thread) ..

    Going to try to reinstall and let you know the result ..

    Have a look in ICloud in your Settings to see if your Contacts is turned on here and that should do the trick.

    All the tweaks and stuff you download from Cydia fall in the "other" category.

    fonts and themes from cydia are particularly beefy in terms of megabytes of storage. i'm quite sure your 5.8 gigs is probably cydia stuff.

    @ leelai : thank you for giving me the solution to the contact app issue .. It worked

    @graywolf & piano man : when you upgrading from 4.3.3 to 5.0.1 you lose all your jailbreak contents and tweaks .. so by losing them, is it not the storage usage of "other" would not be as high as 5.8 Gb ,. ?

    Or are all those jailbreak still sitting in the storage not entirely gone with the upgrade ? ..

    if they are, then i suppose doing a restore should be the option ? .. but plz not the DFU ..

    When you first jailbreak, that "other" shouldn't be so high.

    I was wondering where this "other" is. I checked my storage under settings and couldn't find that.
