    Hi fellows. I was trying to follow swedishviking's guide to move my default applications installation directory but I keep getting the following error msg:

    Please Register or Log in to view images


    "inter-device move failed...unable to remove target. Operation not permitted".

    I did try a few more times. Note: I also ensured I'm in the real root, & not the /private/var/root. But even then, the mv command fails to execute. ls -la works, & cd .. works, so the session is active & my Touch is really connected via Putty(my SSH client).

    But the relocations commands just won't work. May I have u fellows' assistance to resolve this? Thanks in advance.

    P.S. I tried using BigBoss tools but it didn't work for me: I didn't get the "Apps Moved" button after trying clicking on the "Relocate Apps" buttons a few times; & the free space readings remains unchanged too.

    The easiest way to relocate your tools is download "Boss Tool" from Installer.app, but to get "Boss Tools" you'll need to add "sleepers.net/iphonerepo" to you sources. Once you download, open it up "Boss Tools", go to "Free Disk Space" then to "Move apps." That's how I moved mine, real easy.

    Hope that helps you! Good luck!

    Or install Term-vt100 and do it right on your iPod touch.
