    Are you sure? Check under /var/

    If they are there, then it worked.

    ^^nu, every time i've ever tried to use bosstool it moves the ringtones and fonts just fine

    but when it gets to apps the little circley guy spins for a little bit and then blips a little and nothing happens

    and it does that every time after, too

    edit: wtf is with my typing today

    gotta backspace every 3 seconds :<

    These are the commands involved:

    Try this from Term-vt100 or (preferrably) SSHing in:

    mv /Applications /Applications-old
    mv /private/var/root/Applications /private/var/root/Applications-root
    mv /private/var/root/Applications-root/Applications /private/var/mobile/
    ln -s /private/var/mobile/Applications /Applications
    ln -s /private/var/mobile/Applications /private/var/root/Applications
    rm -rf /Applications-old
    rm -rf /private/var/root/Applications-root
    chown -R mobile:mobile /private/var/mobile/Applications
    chmod -R 755 /private/var/mobile/Applications

    Power off the phone/iPod, power on. All your applications should be there and loading BossTool should now show 'Applications already moved' and you having a decent amount of space free.

    I use CuteFTP and i am not sure exactly how to input those commands.

    Also when I connect to my ipod from CuteFTP I get an error saying something about a "host key," and I accept to connect to it even though it explains that I could be subjected to a "man-in-the-middle" attack. But then I get another error that asks "Do you want to change the host key on disk (yes/no)?" Is it safe to click yes or will my ipod mess up?

    Using SSH, I tried the commands as specified. Current Direction is /

    At the 2nd command, mv /private/var/root/Applications /private/var/root/Applications-root,
    there is an command fail message which says no such directory found. Did I do anything wrong? Is my current directory correct?
