    Hello people

    I opened the BossTools to see what does it provide and I tapped Show free disk space.
    It showed me this:

    Free space:
    70M of 500M on /
    3.2G of 7.1G on /private/var

    From the free space left I assume that in a short time I won't be able to install more apps.
    So how can I make the apps install into that bigger partition or how can this be solved- if possible and if possible without restoring n stuff.

    And another question - is it ok to have 7.1G total when I have 8 GB iPouch? - it looks strange to me.

    What do you suggest?

    Ow, and BTW I am on 2.0.1 8GB iPod Touch

    Thanks people.

    Use the BossTool and relocate Fonts/applications.

    what is facepalm?

    i don't have such an option in my bossprefs, how do I do that?
    ow sh*t i realized that i have bossprefs not the bosstools - is there a difference?
    if so then I guess I need to download bosstools from cydia - is that correct?
    Is there a chance that relocating will damage my ipod?
    will I have to restore or is it safe to do that relocating?
    does the bosstools replace the settings app?
    what does the relocation process require?
    I have lots of apps installed and stuff - will bosstools move these application and I will be able to use them after that or will i have to first uninstall all of the apps and then install them again? or how do you do that without damaging anything...
    could you please answer all of these questions since I really don't want to do anything bad to my ipod?
    thank you.

    thanks guys.

    hmmm...so i installed bosstools and it says apps already moved...wtf? even the ringtones - but i dont have ringtones...only fonts can be swtiched...hmmm
    so does it mean that it is already placing the apps into that bigger partition?
