    ok, I have used bosstools. I am running on 1.1.4. After installing roughly 80 applications, I have only 36mb left on my OS partition (according to bosstools). I think it is having an effect on the performance of my ipod. Isn't bosstools supposed to prevent this problem? There is a crapload of space on my other partition...

    EDIT: also, in bosstools, it does not say "Application already moved". It still says "Relocate Applications"

    Well, run the commands here to move the apps, you need to create a symlink.

    If you have already installed 80 apps then it must have already been made, for the original partition isn't that large and usually gives out the main script error after a few apps. Maybe you were an exception, just run the commands and see if it works for you.

    To be honest, after the apps have been moved, it doesn't matter. I only have 6 MB left on my OS partition XD

    Problem: I tried what they suggested on the 1st page. Is said that access was denied. Probably because I am running 1.1.4. Then I tried what someone latter in the thread said. I typed into putty

    Code:
    cp -r /Applications /private/var/Applications
    rm -fr /Applications
    ln -s /private/var/Applications Applications
    ls -la
    After rebooting, my ipod had no applications on the springboard.

    I then tried a trick that I use every time I use ibackup to get my applications running again.

    Code:
    chmod -R 755 /Applications
    and then
    Code:
    chmod a+x+s /Applications/Installer.app/Installer
    I still had no applications on the springboard.

    Then I realized that it probably didn't work because I had symlinked my apps, so I typed in

    Code:
    chmod -R 755 /private/var/Applications
    and then
    Code:
    chmod a+x+s /private/var/Applications/Installer.app/Installer
    After rebooting I still had no icons on the springboard. What do I do to fix this, short of a restore?

    ok, after coming within an inch of bricking my iPod and then selling it to some poor bastard on ebay for more than I paid for it, I finally fixed my iPod. When ever I go into bosstools and relocate my apps, and then symlinky apps though putty (I followed the 1.1.4 noob jailbreak guide) it still keeps placing apps in the os harddrive. After relocating, I have 80mb on my os harddrive. After installing 1 or 2 applications it is down to 77mb. The logical end to this is that eventally I will have no more spaceon my os partition. Why won't it work?

    It sounds like the symlink did not take. If you SSH into your iPod and look at the /Applications folder, does it have a symlink on it? If you click on it does it take you to /private/var/Applications?

    I finally fixed it. I figured out how to manually symlink it.
