    does anyone know how to create a symlink, i want to link the apps folder to /private/var/idroid/apps for testing. i now have it linked to /private/var/firmware because i copied the firmware link and renamed it, but its better to have it in another folder to avoid a mess

    ln -s filename linkname

    The filename refers to the file you wish to access, while linkname refers to the name of the symlink file.
