    For 280MB Problem, How to Resize Application Partition by Command Line? Without doing the whole process again, can I resize the application partition through Telnet's command line and how? Thanks.

    Is it possible to actually resize the partitions?

    Can you add another partition?!?!

    Im thinking OSX/Linux dual boot

    Resizing partitions isn't generally a good idea. Adding partitions isn't going to make the root partition bigger - even if there was a free 20MB on the "drive" that isn't allocated it would just end up being some small 20gb partition.

    20MB isn't exactly a huge amount of space. Just move the Apps over, or move Fonts and leave apps, and don't worry about it. When you redo the whole thing in a month for the 1.1.3 (or greater, who knows by then) jailbreak, it will get fixed anyway.

    I wasn't suggesting making another partition to generate more space, if you read the next line on the post you will see what I meant.

    And I like the sound of that 20gb partition

    Yep, type-o

    I'm looking forward to the 1TB ipod MegaTouch, due out in 2010.

    Seriously though, if you looked at what the jb script did that ended up with the incorrectly sized root partition, you'll see what you'd have to do to "resize" it. Better off either redoing the 1.1.3 jb with the current method that does it right, or not worrying about it for now.

    Use SSH to access your iPod, and this is what I did all the time:
    1. cd /
    2. cp -p -R Applications /private/var/Applications
    3. mv Applications App.old; ln -s /private/var/Applications . ; rm App.old

    Well, the 3rd line is basically making the soft link and removing the old folder, but since the command rm takes longer time than just renaming, I would say it's say to rename first, make the soft link and remove afterwards.

    cheers.
