    When I try to create a symlink named "root" in /private/var that links to /private/var/mobile, WinSCP gives me an error code 4 and won't create the link. Any suggestions as to why this happens? My friend says he can create the link fine on his 1.1.4 iPhone.

    EDIT: I got it to work by making a link in /private/var named "root2", then deleted the root folder and renamed the link to "root". Now it works fine. Maybe that'll help for anyone else having this issue.
