I downloaded a psp rom which failed to work & is lost in my iFiles... taking up a lot of space. Is there any way to get rid of it or is my only choice resetting my phone?

A file is never "lost" in iFiles, you just can't find it. Simply download MobileTerminal or SSH into your phone. Then type the following commands, this will allow terminal to search through your Root FS and look for files that end with ISO (which is PSP ROM extension) Then open up iFile and go to the Folder and delete it (or delete via Terminal, but it might be a little scary if you make a little mistake ;)

cd /

find / -iname "*.iso"

I know this is late but another way is to use ifile if your jailbroken you've probably downloaded it. Scroll to the top of ifile click on search filenames, a iso usually comes in a .rar file before its been unarchived or extracted if its lost its probably found by that not .iso make sure you select Hierarchy not Directory and it will take a while maybe 5 minutes depends on your device. Once it has found your files ending in .rar select the one you want to delete and it will give you information like its location But will not let you modify or delete it so screen shot it and then use the screen shoted information to locate the file and delete it, i had the same problem with phantasy star portable psp iso.

Im sure they have figured it out or moved on since this question is approaching two years old.

Please do not bump or answer very very old questions.
