    Is it possible to resize "/"? Mine is currently set at 750MB, with almost 300MB of free space on it. I would like to the partition size to 550MB so that I can recover some space.

    As far as I know you cannot resize the system partition.

    Not even with a restore?

    I'm mistaken - you used to be able to set it in BossTool or BossPrefs or Cydia or something ages ago. Anyway the default is 500MB and restoring should reset it to 500MB I would think. Sorry for the previous misinformation.

    Can't find it in BossTool or BossPrefs. Strange as the first time I jailbroke it was also 750MB, this is the second time, and still 750MB

    You can do it with PwnageTool or WinPwn, but it requires a restore, and the lowest you can go is 500, IIRC.
