    Question [1.1.3 JB] All installed Apps GONE. + Installer crashes when installing

    Hi there,

    i have a problem with my just updated Iphone 1.1.3. It is working and running 1.1.3. But unfortunately all my apps i had installed via installer are now GONE. Any solutions?
    Additionally, when i open installer and try to install new apps, it crashes after downloading the app.
    syncing and everything else seems to work, but the localization.
    I remember at the end of the JB it remained with the circulating refresh/rebooting screen. so i hard resetted/rebooted it. 1.1.3 appeared, but all other installed apps were gone as described.
    I am really hoping that somebody could help and or explain what happened.
    Thank you so much,

    All your apps are erased when you flash to 1.1.3 sorry =/

    As far as Installer crashing, after Installer.app, BSD, and SSH are installed, the root partition is like 99% full... there isn't any room for more than like 1 or 2 small Apps. To fix this you need to move you Applications directory to you Media partition.

    Try this guide:
    http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/show...23&postcount=2
    (I replaced [/private]/var/root with /private/var/mobile, I don't know if this is necessary, or if it's even better.

    This is probably good to do as well (should be done first, actually):

    (Make sure you don't see "noexec" anywhere in /etc/fstab)

    Unhappy Nope

    Hey there,
    thanks for that fast reply. But it doesnt seem to help.

    The fstab already looks like it is supposed to look.

    It seems like the apps are linked somehow wrong. My guess is, that all the APPS I can currently see on my iphonescreen 1.1.3 are stored under /APPLICATIONS.
    Also, here is a folder with the name of an applilcation that i tried to install after the installer crashed.
    All my old Applications, that i had on my 1.1.2 iPhone, are found under

    /private/var/mobile/Library - where the apps-folders are, but just with *.db files and some others

    /private/var/root/Library - there is just the Lockdown-Folder...

    Now, under

    /var/mobile/Library/ - i can also see all/most of my apps i had installed. partly complete and some folders are just with *.db and other files. BUT, for example, in the MobileFinder-Folder, there is a link (with a black arrow) linking to /Applications. Is this one of those "symblinks" i read about all the time?

    I hope this helps, i am kind of stuck. Would this

    http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/show...23&postcount=2

    solution help, by moving all the APPS to the mobile section? And why can't i see the previous apps like MobileFinder and others? They are not even listed in the installer anymore, telling they are already installed...
    What went wrong during the update?

    Well i am thankful to any help or solution.
    yours,

    mono

    The files in any of the /Library directories are not the App's themselves.. Trust me, your old apps got erased when you updated to 1.1.3, those are just remaining files, mostly like preference files and stuff (probably the .db's you were referring to).

    It's good that there's nothing else in /private/var/root/ ..that space isn't really used in 1.1.3, it has been changed to /private/var/mobile/.

    The reason you see the Application directory that you were installing when Installer crashed is because it was probably part-way through the installation when it crashed (it had at least made the directory).

    So wait, did you follow that guide yet or not? That should fix the problem.. Just follow the guide but replace "/root" in /private/var/root and /var/root with "/mobile" (so you get /private/var/mobile and /var/mobile).

    Wow, now i am confused
    (thanks for your time though... you got my problem)
    I haven't run

    cd /
    cp -pr Applications /var/root
    mv Applications Applications.old
    ln -s private/var/root/Applications /Applications

    yet.

    should i rather run:

    cd /
    cp -pr Applications/var/mobile
    mv Applications Applications.old
    ln -s private/var/mobile/Applications/Applications ?????

    (just want to make sure, not that i mess up anything more)

    thanks,

    Yes, but look very closely! I think you missed some spaces in there.. here try this:

    Code:
    cd /
    cp -pr Applications /private/var/mobile
    mv Applications Applications.old
    ln -s /private/var/mobile/Applications /Applications
    When you're done, make sure everything works first, even after a reboot, then you can delete /Applications.old.
    Code:
    cd /
    rm -rf Applications.old

    hmm.
    after the third line i get the following message:

    Code:
    ln: /Applications: No space left on device
    thanks for guidance,

    Oh man! You really got it bad.. You have like ABSOLUTLY NO SPACE. Just go into /Applications.old and delete something... you might want to check and make sure whatever you are going to delete is in /private/var/mobile/Applications first though. After you delete something (pretty much anything) there should be room for the symlink (that "ln -s" command). By the way, don't start over from the top, make sure you do a "cd /" first, but just do that "ln -s" command next, not another "cp".

    Yes, you can have Gigs of storage free in your Media partition, that's why we're moving your Apps there. On a stock iPhone, they are in the root partition (this is invisible in iTunes, and why it says you only have 7.3gbs even though you paid for an 8gb iPhone). This stock partition is only about 300mbs big, barely large enough to hold the firmware and a few small apps. With each new firmware, the amount of space for custom apps has also decreased as the firmware has gotten larger. In 1.1.3 pretty much the entire root partition is filled (once Installer.app, BSD, and OpenSSH are installed), so this patch is pretty much neccessary.

    In simpler terms:
    Imagine your iPhone has two hard drives in it (It's actually just one, but it is split in to what are called partitions, which pretty much act as seperate drives). One is for the operating system, and one is for your media (music, videos, email, etc..). The drive for the OS is only about 300mb. The drive for your media is 7.3GB or so and is located at /private/var (anything within /private/var is on your Media partition). On a stock phone, the Applications are all in (and are installed in) /Applications on the OS partition. We are moving them to the media partition (/private/var) so they are in (and installed into) /private/var/mobile/Applications instead, taking up space in that 7.3GBs rather than the 300mb.

    Anyway, any luck?
