    Installous is more than likely the answer. Unlike Cydia, it is filled with hacked/cracked and basically illegal software.

    If you have to restore, read up on it first, cause just hitting the restore button will put you to 3.1.3.

    I don't know why, but there is file called "rockapp_2010-3-15.log" in private/var/mobile/library/ryp/logs and it is probably the same size as your "Other" settings.
    I found this out using WinSCP

    Mine is doing the same thing "Other" is 12GB. Log file is 12GB. Not sure how to fix it. I deleted the file and then I open rock it said. It looks like you recently restored your phone would you like to restore from backup. I said No. But now Itunes says it can't sync with my iphone because it is full and wants to restore to previous backup.

    UPDATE: OK, I shut down and restarted my phone. Boots up fine now. says 11.73GB free scape on the phone if I go to General and then about. But when I connect open i tunes now it says an iphone has previously synced with this computer. and my options are setup as a new iPhone or Restore from backup, but the last back was about 1 hour ago when I was having the "Other" space problems.

    I deleted the that rockapp log file I mentioned above and went ahead and restored to my last itunes backup as it was prompting me. My jailbreak is still intact. All apps were still running running fine. Didn't loose anything nor did I have to reinstall anything else.

    Cydia had given me an error when I launched saying something about, cydia does not know what version it is, this can be caused by... can't remember exactly what it said, but it was something about var and sysbkup or something. Sorry can't remember the details. But I remembered I had also did a backup a couple days ago using aptbackup, so I went to that hit restore and about 5 minutes later, everything to normal as if nothing ever happened.

    Cydia and Rock are fine, all jailbreak apps work great, regular apps work great, and I have my 12GB of free space back.

    BTW, I have a 16GB 3GS with 3.1.2 jailbroken.

    If you have a 3GS and did NOT select "Make My Life Easier" in Cydia, you cannot restore to a version of the firmware that is no longer signed by Apple. If you did select that option you can read about what to do here: Caching Apple's Signature Server - Jay Freeman (saurik)

    I am having the same problem today. When i woke up this morning, my phone was unreponsive. I soft reset and things were working fine. When i hooked it up to my PC, i was getting the other thing going.

    i just found this on the macrumors.com forum.....

    Yesterday, my phone was suddenly filled to capacity out of nowhere. I was unable to take pictures and it would give me a warning every few minutes or so. In iTunes, it showed that I had about 5GB of "Other." If you are having this problem, CLICK HERE.

    It turns out that it has something to do with a log file in Rock. It looks like you just need to delete that file, and disable Rock extensions. Hope this helps!
