    I have bean having a problem with boss tools, ever since i couldnt install anymore apps, i tried to relocate my apps with boss tools, I installed boss tools, and when im at the relocating screen, the part that is supposed to say how much space i have is random symbols and numbers, and when i click relocate apps, and click Dot it!, the little circle thing spins for like 2 seconds, then nothing happens.....and it stays at the screen.. Any of you guys know what the problem is? SHould i just delete bosstools through mobile finder and install it again?because when i tried reinstalling it on uninstall, it didnt work.

    P.s. : Dont yell at me for not searching, i have searched, and i havnt found the answer.

    If you couldn't delete it with Installer.app, it sounds to me like something has gone wrong with the program. I guess that I would delete with MobileFinder, then reinstall, BossTools worked great for me.

    BossTools doesn't work, do this instead:

    HOW-TO: Get around the application space limit your Touch!

    Executing the commands below will remove your application space limitation so that you're only limited by the device's drive.. Your apps will share the same space available to your media files.

    NOTE: This guide assumes you have jailbreaked your iPod touch and installed the necessary Unix binaries, either manually or by using some sort of semi-automated/automated jailbreak method.

    WARNING: Although this seems to work just as intended, it's not been tested for more than a number of hours, meaning that it's entirely possible it could somehow break in the future. Therefore, only do this at your own risk!

    1.
    SSH into your iPod touch using the SSH client of your choice; I recommend putty, which you can download at http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/

    2.
    Move your applications folder to the /private/var folder by typing the following:

    Code:
    mv /Applications /private/var/Applications
    3.
    Change directory to / by typing

    Code:
    cd /
    4.
    Create a symbolic link to the Applications folders new location:

    Code:
    ln -s /private/var/Applications Applications
    5.
    Type the following to get a directory list of /, so we can make sure the symbolic link was created correctly:

    Code:
    ls -la
    In the list that comes up, you should have an entry similar to this one:

    Code:
    lrwxr-xr-x  1 root admin   25 Oct 12 22:31 Applications -> /private/var/Applications
    6. Alright, seems like it worked.. Now all you have to do is reboot your iPod touch! Do that now.

    7. To further make sure it's working correctly for you, enter the Installer app and check the available space at the bottom. It should be higher than it was previously, as you've moved away all space-intensive apps. Try installing an app larger than 1MB (MobileChat for example) to see that the amount of available space stays the same.

    8. Done! Install away!
