    [Solution] Getting older Apps working under Dev Official 1.1.3 JB. Need advice

    READ DOWN THE POSTS A BIT FOR THE SOLUTION

    A guy over on modmyifone.com posted the following:

    Now I created the symlink as he suggested and it works - all of the apps like gPSphone and snes4iphone etc can find their ROMS at the new location through the symlink.

    But it's still not resolving:

    Locations - had a weird place it was storing it's PLIST of webcams and images. Anyone happen to remember where?

    VNSea - still not saving server preferences, therefore unusable.

    Iphysics - though it has a directory under /var/mobile/Media and its levels are there and work, I cannot install new level packs via Installer... I have not tried a manual copy of levels via SSH but I imagine it'd work. (Found solution on this one. Gee, Search is enabled in the forums again.. you can actually find answers. Neato.)

    MobileRSS - says it cant access its Database when you try to add a feed. Anyone know where this is storing its goods?

    Is this just a matter of symlinking additional directories? Or do I have a permissions probelm somewhere?

    None of these work right out of the Installer.app. Not on the official Dev JB 1.1.3 running on an Ipod Touch.

    PS: Some other issues - iShare doesnt save your prefs, Backgammon doesnt save your activation, etc.

    I jailbreaked with one of the old ones, ibrickr and stuff (no automatic).
    And I got a error at the end of the jailbreak but everything is working like a charm, VNsea saving and such. Version is right and iPhone apps to. Kinda wierd, I wish i know what happened

    Okay, here's a thread with the solution. In addition to symlinking root's Media directory, you also need to do root's Library directory (duh, that's where most programs store their preferences plists.)

    I still don't have Locations working.

    And I still can't get Level Packs to install for iPhysics (despite what this linked thread says.) I've tried uninstalling. I've tried CHMODing. Nothing works.

    But VNSea, iShare, MobileRSS etc are all a go now.
