    I don't think you can. I think the iPhone only uses 2 partitions, the System and the Private. System ranges depending on the storage of your device (500MB for an 8GB, or 750MB for a 16GB). Private is the reminder of space, for everything else your device stores (music, apps, videos,etc...)

    I don't think 1.1.4 will even work anymore because the baseband is updated.

    My iPod Touch 2G 32GB is partitioned as:
    Code:
    Eriks-iPod-Touch:~ root# df -h
    Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/disk0s1          500M  425M   71M  86% /
    devfs                  19K   19K     0 100% /dev
    /dev/disk0s2           30G   29G  1.4G  96% /private/var
    
    ..I have a lot of CLI tools installed that get put in /usr/* which is on the 500MB system partition. I had to copy that folder to the 2ndary partition (/private/var/usr/*) then symling the system one to the private one to free up a bunch of space. (WARNING! it took lots of experimenting to get this right w/o breaking requiring a re-flash)

    But why would you want to run 1.1.4 in the firstplace.
