    Exclamation 1.1.3 Installer - Crashes on app install

    This is the second phone this is happening to. I did a virginize, restore to 1.1.2, restore to 1.1.1, anysim1.21u unlock on 1.1.1, update to 1.1.2, then dev's 1.1.3 upgrade/jailbreak and all seemed well in the world. installer worked fine for the first 9 application installs, but when i attempted a 10th, it crashed. now, even if i remove an app, i still cannot reinstall a new app, but i CAN reinstall that same app that was previously uninstalled. WHY???? :S

    You're out of space on that partition. You'll need to move your Applications over to the larger partition and symlink it to /Applications in order to install anything more.

    Lemme find the thread...

    Edit: The relevant stuff is here: http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=16353

    Just a few commands to do via SSH.

    You're RIGHT!! I deleted all my apps, and now I can install new ones!!! Would this work?

    Here’s what’s actually happening: the iPhone (or iPod Touch) places a low, artificial size limit on its /Applications directory, which is reached after installing a number of third-party apps. In order to get around this problem, you need to store your Applications in the Media directory, where much more space is allocated. To do so, follow this process: Warning: If you don’t type these commands exactly, you may put your iPhone in a state where it repeatedly reboots, potentially forcing a restore or interaction via SSH (discussed at the end of these instructions):

    Make sure you have at least 500 MB of free space on your iPhone/iPod Touch (via the indicator on iTunes).
    Through Installer.app, download and install “Term-vt100,” and “BSD Subsystem” located in the “System” category (if you don’t have enough space to install Term-vt100, delete some applications temporarily).
    Launch Term-vt100 from your SpringBoard (home screen).
    Type the following commands exactly on your iPhone’s keyboard, paying particular attention to spacing and capitalization, and press return after each:
    cd /
    cp -pr Applications /var/root
    mv Applications Applications.old
    ln -s private/var/root/Applications /Applications

    Your Applications should now be stored in the Media (/var/root) directory. You can check this by typing the commands:

    cd /
    ls -la
    Among the listed entries, you should see something like the following:
    rwxr-xr-x 1 root admin […] Applications -> private/var/root/Applications
    This shows that your /Applications directory is symlinked to /private/var/root/Applications
    Now restart your iPhone or iPod Touch. If everything works normally, launch Term-vt100 again and enter the following commands to delete your old Applications folder:

    cd /
    rm -rf Applications.old

    at least for Dev Team method jailbreakers, you might want to replace /private/var/root with /private/var/mobile and /var/root with /var/mobile. Not sure if it matters, but this is what I did and it works perfectly.
