    Default [Req] Increasing Storage Space for Root

    Hi All,

    I have a 8 Gig iPhone. I dont have much music/videos and am using only 2 Gig for Multimedia. Remaining 6 Gig is free space. But I need a lot of space for root directory (for Apps and stuff). Default is 200 Mb, I guess.. which is full on my iPhone.

    How do I increase that space to 1 Gig or something...
    Please Help

    With 354 posts it's suprising you don't know how to move the apps to the media partition. Bosstool will do it for you, start with the fonts.

    Default Root partition size is 300MB. Also after moving the Fonts, RingTones and Applications folders, i don't see why you need 1GB as all the data are stored in /var/mobile/ or /var/root.

    /var/ is a symlink to the Media partition.

    this is a forum to share knowledge not to just socialize
    anyways to the thread starter: i have a 4 gig fon n i dont get memory outages, everytime i fu k stuff up n restore i just install cydia; it gives me enough space to install ANYTHIN! i want. U want 1 gig for apps, i guarantee u wont fill even 1% of it in ur fones life (till u either restore or a new fw update comes up that is). If u want to c ur fone's memory full just load up movies or w.e, but if it aint botherin u, then why bother

    Quick question on BossTools.

    Can I download it, install it... move the fonts, and then uninstall it?

    Cause I really only have a need to use it just that one time and don't really want it...

    You don't need Bosstools, if you are a developer. It is just some unix scripts that you can manage

    Run these in iPhone in order to move the fonts folder to second disk.

    /bin/cp -R -p /System/Library/Fonts /private/var/Fonts
    /bin/rm -rf /System/Library/Fonts
    /bin/ln -s /private/var/Fonts /System/Library/Fonts


    Run these in iPhone in order to move the built-in Ringtones folder to second disk.

    /bin/cp -R -p /Library/Ringtones /private/var/Ringtones
    /bin/rm -rf /Library/Ringtones
    /bin/ln -s /private/var/Ringtones /Library/Ringtones


    Run these in iPhone in order to move the built-in Wallpaper folder to second disk.

    /bin/cp -R -p /Library/Wallpaper /private/var/Wallpaper
    /bin/rm -rf /Library/Wallpaper
    /bin/ln -s /private/var/Wallpaper /Library/Wallpaper

    I don't like to move Applications folder
