    Exclamation [1.1.3] Free space error messed everything up : \

    I tried to fix the free space error like this.

    /private/var/root$ cd /
    /$ cd Applications/
    /Applications$ wget http://repository.apptapp.com/packag.../Installer.zip
    --14:31:36-- http://repository.apptapp.com/packag.../Installer.zip
    => `Installer.zip'

    /Applications$ cd /

    /$ cd /
    /$ cd /
    /$ cd /
    /$ cp -pr Applications /var/mobile
    /$ mv Applications Applications.old
    /$ ln -s private/var/mobile/Applications /Applications
    ln: /Applications: No space left on device
    /$ rm -rf Applications.old
    /$ /cd
    -sh: line 58: /cd: No such file or directory
    /$ cd /
    /$ cp -pr Applications /var/root
    cp: cannot stat `Applications': No such file or directory
    /$ cd /
    /$ cd Applications/
    -sh: line 66: cd: Applications/: No such file or directory
    /$ cd /private/var/root/Applications /Applications
    /$ cd /
    /$ /cp -pr Applications /var/root
    -sh: line 72: /cp: No such file or directory
    /$ /cd
    -sh: line 74: /cd: No such file or directory
    /$ cd /
    /$ cp -pr Applications /private/var/mobile
    cp: cannot stat `Applications': No such file or directory


    But now I can't to anything, i don't know where my Applications folder is.

    Could anyone give me the commands so I can put it back to it's default location?

    Let me see if I understand your command history correctly:

    1. you downloaded Installer manually (via shell)
    2. you were told that you are out of free space
    3. you changed your path to the root directory (repeatedly)
    4. you copied the Applications folder (and its sub-directories) into "/var/mobile"
    5. you renamed the Applications folder in the root directory to "Applications.old"
    6. you *tried* to create a symlink for "private/var/mobile/Applications" to point to "/Applications"
    7. you were told that you did not have enough free space to create a symlink file
    8. you deleted "/Applications.old"
    9. you *tried* to copy "/Applications" to "/var/root"
    10. you were told that it was not possible
    11. you *tried* to change your path to "/Applications"
    12. you were told that "/Applications" no longer exists
    13. (I have no clue what commands you were trying to do here)
    14. you *tried* to copy the Applications folder to "/private/var/mobile"
    15. you were told that the Applications folder no longer exists

    Let me know if I got the recap wrong.

    Your SpringBoard is gone for two reasons:

    1. You deleted your entire Applications folder in the root directory (see steps 5 and 8).
    2. You did not create a symlink (or shortcut) to the original (root) directory because you did not have free space for the symlink (see step 7). However, even if you had the free space for the symlink, the symlink creation would have failed because you copied the Applications folder to "/var/mobile" rather than to "/private/var/mobile."

    I'm not sure how your directories are set up on your iPhone, but your SpringBoard should be in "/var/mobile" (see step 4).

    I don't think I should give you the commands to get things back to normal because you have shown that you have no idea how to navigate your way around the shell. I am afraid that you may do something else wrong that will completely ruin your phone. I suggest you just start over from scratch. I recall seeing a HOWTO that tell you how to fix the free space problem step-by-step. I suggest you follow the HOWTOs *after* starting over from scratch.

    Thanks for your help.

    Instead of me starting from scratch.. There must be a way of just reversing what i did? Could anyone supply me those commands?
