    When I did that Instruction for getting no applications limit it worked fine.
    But with 1.1.3 i just cannot move my Applications Folder to Private/var/applications
    It always give me
    Code:
    [B]# mv /Applications /private/var/Applications
    mv: /bin/: Permission denied
    mv: /bin/: terminated with 1 (non-zero) status: Cross-device link[/B]
    How can I fix this?

    boss tool :add this to your sources in installer: http://sleepers.net/iphonerepo

    and for the other part, go to /bin/ in ssh and see if you see a file called mv... if its not in there then something went wrong with your bsd subsystem install... go to installer and you will see in uninstall that theres only an option to reinstall bsd subsystem

    that or try cp instead of mv. just copy them instead of move em.

    I had this source already in my installer but it was not there.
    By installing some other sources i have found it finally in modmyifone.
    but thanks for your help.

    Well I have installed Boss Tool to move it, but it did not really move it there.
    I have 2 two copies of Applications now.
    One in / and the other one in /private/var/applications
    but when i want to install something it still installs it in the / directory.

    and by the way, yes i see a file called mv

    mv isn't working for me either, with the same error, so instead, do this:

    cp -r /Applications /private/var/Applications
    rm -rf /Applications
    ln -s /private/var/Applications /Applications

    That'll work fine, you can do the same thing with wallpapers, ringtones, and fonts, which'll clear up a lot of space and allow you to install stuff like the python runtime (having a portable python environment is awesome).
