How to fix some mysterious problems.

I have an iPod Touch 4. I had jailbroken it.

When I decided to remove the jailbreak, I followed online instructions from one site, it said to uninstall cydia installer, I did that. Later I learned from another site that I should have installed the tweaks.

Now The other memory size on my iPod still shows a lot of space taken. How do I get my memory back. I can't restore my iPOD, because I no longer have the laptop I used to sync the music from, So I have no backup of the music.

Is there a way I can clear the other part of my memory.

Only way to remove jailbreak is a full restore using iTunes on a pc .....there is no other way.

Install PhoneClean for PC and Mac, which is a cache cleaner for iOS devices. You plug in the device then open the software and you can take it from there. Can't access any computer for it? Then you can't fix it. If this doesn't work, you'll need to restore.

Also, what website told you to remove Cydia Installer? No one should ever uninstall cydia by going into cydia and tapping 'uninstall.'
