    When I installed apps yesterday, on 3.0, through cydia. I noticed a box coming up that said "You are running out of space, delete photos to get more" or something like that. I checked SBsettings and it said I had 51 mb left on / (root?). I think I had that much space on 2.2.1. Is it a new feature in 3.0, or am I really running out of space?

    There are two partitions:

    /private/var/mobile/, and
    /

    The 'mobile' partition has about 6.7GB of space on an 8GB iPod, and about 14GB of space on a 16GB. This is usually not full.

    The / partition, only having ~500MB, is usually filled up within minutes of downloading applications from Cydia. Remember, this also has the OS Stored in it too. To fix this problem, you have to delete files from the / partition, or create symlinks and move them to the mobile partition.

    Well I got the message once, carried on with my day, continued downloading apps, and never ran into a problem.

    Most of you never had the problem with this because in 1.1.3 (i think, maybe 2) the symlinks were created and have been used since then.

    Jamil, you forgot to mention the 29GB on a 32GB iPod.
    Huh are the symlinks there? I haven't bothered checking into it but I don't know why they wouldn't be anymore.
