    There have been dozens of threads created about the 1.1.3 jailbreak now -- understandably, but I don't seem to recall seeing these questions confirmed with absolute certainty yet, so I wanted to ask here:

    1) Is access to /var/root/ blocked? There's confusion about this because it is beyond this point that ROMs and game data files (i.e. iPhysics) are stored and there seem to be no problems with them.

    2) If this is the case, can applications not be moved and symlinked to /var/root/ as always? Is /var/mobile/ involved here at all?

    Thanks.

    All of my roms are inside the var/root/media folder ad are working fine. I'll try experimenting with the var/root folder.
    EDIT: just like zerod07 said, everything seems to be working fine without the library/mobile.

    I don't think access to var/root/ is blocked... I think that, for apps that are directed there, you need to create a new folder especially for the specifed app in question.

    Nice, thanks. I'm guessing the confusion arose from the fact that users no longer operate at root access level on 1.1.3, which I guess made people assume no /var/root access. (I'm at work and haven't JB'ed yet so I'm trying to assemble all this information ahead of time, both so I'm prepared for the JB later tonight and so I can write accurately about it on the blog.)


    Thanks, folks!

    Well, have a look at update.sh in softupgrade.zip..

    rm -rf /var/mobile
    ln -s /var/root /var/mobile
