    I would like somebody to make me some symlinks that link "/private/var/root/Downloads" and "/private/var/mobile/Media/Downloads" to "/private/var/mobile/Downloads". I can't figure out how to do it and don't want to try and accidently mees it up. And if possible could you also make an "un"symlink to undo it if i want? I don't know if that's possible though(It's not important though). Thank you.

    C'mon guys, for somebody that knows how to make a symlink it should take you 30 seconds.

    Enter in this command:

    To link /var/root/Downloads to /var/mobile/Downloads
    To link /var/mobile/Media/Downloads to /var/mobile/Downloads
    *I have never used these commands, I just found them in other threads.

    Appreciate it. I'd rep you but I have to "spread some rep around" before I can give you more.

    EDIT: Wow that was too simple, I should have been able to figure that for myself.

    Ok glad to hear you got it working. Once you know some commands, things like this seem more and more logical.
