How to fix some mysterious problems.

I just upgraded from 3.1.2 and greenpois0n worked beautifully. However, I noticed that now I have duplicate of everything in my /var/stash folder. eg: Ringtones.C6P4JW Ringtones.FiDlSr include.Bayzl3 include.Ru64bo libexec.BcALN8 libexec.zkUr43

Can I safely remove the older folder or should I keep them there?

And this is the reason 8among others) why you should do full restores when updating from jailbroken firmware, but yes, you should be able to remove the old folder, just make sure it's actually the old one you are removing.

Thanks! Yeah, should have restored but I dreaded reimporting all my music, so I figured I could try without restore first. Removed Ringtone and Wallpaper, and renamed the rest with .bak for now and will delete them if no error occurs. So far so good.
