    I decided to restore to 3.1.2 and re-jailbreak to clear up a few issues, mostly to try to shrink my "other" section, which has been well over 500 MB for a while now. the last time I JB'd, I restored from a backup, so I thought that may be why. This time, I set up as new phone, and after syncing my apps back, "other" is already around 450 MB. I haven't even applied the jailbreak yet. Does that seem normal?

    Because that "other" section measures the sizes of all of your jailbreak downloads/apps.

    Yes, but that was before I even applied the jailbreak. After I ran blackra1n and added a (minimal) selection of JB stuff, "other" jumped to almost 800 meg.

    Yes, I remember reading a thread abou this a short while ago. I believe that the jailbreak confuses certain files (like mp3 and mov files) and it no longer classifies them as audio or video, it places them in the other folder. This also applies to apps as well... Don't quote me on it, but that may be your issue.
