    Here is my problem:
    I used ipodtouchmaster's method of upgrading to 1.1.3 and getting the new features. Everything was going fine until I tried installing my old apps like summerboard, mobiletetronimos, domino, etc. It will get as far as downloading, but when it reaches install, it crashes and returns to the home page. I've read a lot of forums about installing Bosstool, but how am I supposed to install it if Installer doesn't work, which was my problem in the first place? Also, some sites say to SSH in, but I have absolutely no idea how. When I go into Installer, it says I have openSSH, services, and BSD Subsystem installed, but they don't show up on the home page. Help, please?

    you mean the main directory? yeah, when i click on that Applications, it takes me to /private/var/mobile/Applications, or something, but not just /Applications...so it doesnt work...

    This is what mine brings up /Applications. And this is the directory where i found it /. Which jailbreak method did you use. I dont know if it matters but i used the ipod elite team version.

    i've fixed the problem. it turns out I updated on the un-updated version of installer and therefore, it started crashing.
