    After jailbreaking via the Dev teams GUI soft upgrade, whenever go into my ipod with SSH and try to accesss private/var/root/media it redirects to private/var/mobile/media. I don't think it is supposed to be doing this. Also my iphysics levels and summerboard themes are not installing.

    Help?

    Prior to 1.1.3, we were the root user.

    Apple change that to mobile.

    This is a significant different.

    Forget "private/var/root/". It's "private/var/mobile/" for YOUR iPod touch since you jailbroke to 1.1.3 using the Dev Team method. Had you jailbroke from 1.1.1 with the Nate True method, you'll still be the root user instead of the "mobile" user.

    Both methods has its own disadvantages and advantages.

    I, for now, like True's.
