    just somehow tell it to start a shell command... i cant really figure out how to do this with applescript, but with just a plain script, this can be done in no time.

    i think its something like this

    tell application "Terminal"
    do shell script "Insert Command here"
    end tell

    im not exactly sure this will work, but its worth a try.

    Was just thinking if you change the integer amount to say 5000000 then it will think it is 5mb or you could set it as 500000 so that it will think it is 500kb

    The pwnage tool resizes the root partition to 300mb so you have extra space for stuff. You can easily change it. But you can't go above a certian amount. I tried 500 mb and that doesn't work.

    This is because you do not have your iPod Symlinked. This way, you can install your applcations in /Applcations, but really, the folder "Applications" is only a link to /var/Applications. And by the way, i dont think that 300mb is the way that pwnage resizes it. I dont think it resizes it at all. I think the default partition space is 300. Hope i could help
