    Install BossTool?
    I've just j/b'd 1.1.4 and following the "Almost Automatic" method, its telling me to install "BossTool", now I have heard there are some problems with BossTool, is it REALLY necessary?

    You should, as it will free up space for downloading applications. I guess you don't have to, but you'll probably get "Main Script Execution" errors in Installer though. I haven't had any problems with Bosstools though, and I recommend you download it and relocate your fonts.

    you doint have to unless you want more then about 15 apps, and if you get roms for emulators you will definately need bosstool

    Not really. Roms go in the ~/Media folder so Bosstool wont move it.

    So, I think I'll use it as a last resort

    That might not be the best idea.

    Sometimes, at least for me, if you use Bosstool after downloading lots of stuff, your apps disappear.

    Again, at least that is what happened to me the last time I tried that.

    If you feel as though you'll be using alot of applications, install BossTool.

    If you feel as though you won't be using alot of applications, don't install BossTool.

    Simple as that
