"Other" is anything on internal storage that doesn't fit the description of the other categories. The ROM alone is probably a GB or more. Also did you make a Titanium backup, or nandroid? Those take up storage, also.
I like to keep a known good ROM or nandroid (but not both, as that is excessive) on internal storage or removable SD, in case anything goes wrong I can restore with one of those (although you can pretty easily get it on the phone or SD if needed, so its just for convenience). But aside from that, its not necessary to keep the ROM zip.
Did you outright delete the nandroid, or at least move/copy to your computer or SD first? You have 17 GB free, so unless you make a copy, discarding backup data for the sake of unneeded space seems like a poor trade-off.
Do you understand that flashing a ROM does not wipe the internal storage? So anything you saved there before the flash is still there. Unless you choose the option in recovery to wipe storage, which will then of course cause you to lose any personal data stored there (backups, photos, etc.).
There are various apps to look at storage, but I find that one to have a cool and useful interface:
It visually shows you how much space a folder is taking up, and you can then tap on it to drill down.
Wow this a really nice app. Thanks for being so patient with me I really appreciate it. I'm not a brand new android user but when I had one before my ex took care of all the stuff like this. That's why I'm still needing help in some areas because I switched back to iPhone after my my touch 4g.
