    I'm reading that lot of people had lost the "media_sym" by installing oktoprep, and get a root.zip instead.
    I still have my media_sym, and no root.zip, even if i've installed oktoprep and update to 1.1.2 jailbroken.

    Why this ? It's not a problem, just curiosity... and BTW, where do you find the applications folder whithout media_sym ? I've read its only a sym link, but all I have is a Library and a Desktop (empty) file with this media_sym.

    You don't need Media_sym. It was left behind by older JailBreaks. It is literally nothing more than a symbolic link.

    But the Application folder way is : /private/var/root/Media_Sym/Applications
    If one day I restore and jailbreak from 1.1.1 I'll see what I'll get.

    Thanks for the confirmation anyway

    Applications folder is /Applications, if anything it should be /private/var/Applications. But it doesn't matter, as of right now you lose your apps when you upgrade anyway.
