    I want to make a symlink from /var/mobile/Library/Downloads to
    /var/mobile/Media/Downloads for the new Mewseek application. Please make sure it's compatible with the Terminal application on my Mac please!

    If I wanted to make a sym link to my themes folder so it would be in the root directory would it be...

    sftp root@ IP
    alpine
    cd /Library/Themes
    In -s /

    No, first you go to the directory you want the symlink in, and then tell it where to go

    cd Directory of symlink

    ln -s Where you want the symlink to go//Symlink name

    So, it would be this:

    sftp root@ IP
    alpine
    cd /
    In -s /Library/Themes/ Themes

    Make sure to remember the end slash on /Library/Themes/

    Can't , it won't boot at all anymore.
    Or do anything.
    No SSH.
    Gotta restore.
    Which I can only do at my dad's since he has all my music and apps and all that and jailbreaking on windows never works for me.
    And I go back there in about a week and a half.
    So , no iPod for a week and a half...

    Creating a symlink would do nothing of the sort. Sometimes that just happens.
