    Default Cydia Crashing

    iPhpne 1G, 2.1 FW, jailbreaked and unlocked.

    I have moved the Applications folder onto the larger /private/var partition to give more room for applications. So far everything is working flawlessly - apart from Cydia

    Once I try to start it, it launches, shows a "blank" windows for 1 secnd, then fails back to the springboard

    Now if this a common issue with Cydia? Or am I just plain unlucky?

    I can "solve" it by leaving a symlink to /var/stash/Applications/Cydia.app under /Applications/ - but this is IMHO not a very good way to try to solve the issue.
    What happens when I try to install new applications? Will Cydia install them to the defaul Applications dir (hence /private/var/Applications) or will it use the Cydia install dir? (hence /var/stash/Applications/) ?

    Why you have moved it? Cydia does it by itself in the first start. Maybe your problem are permissions. Did you checked it?

    I'm soo daft.. Didn't notice that /var is a symlink to /private/var.. On my old iPhone I ould move the Applications folder to free up space on the tiny 300/500MB partition.

    I wanted to move it becuase I'm low on disk space on the small 500MB partition, I have only 80Mb free
