[1.1.4, BL3.9,Zi2.5] Some troubles with Install.app
Yesterday I used Ziphone 2.5
Afterwards I installed many applications. At a certain point there was a messagge
"Not enough memory, remove some files". I had 1.5 GB free!
After other installations Iphone was not rebooting. I tried to reboot it, but nothing...
I restored 1.1.4 and Ziphone 2.5
Now it is okay, but sometimes he does not connect properly or it does not download.
Does anybody notice such misfuctioning in install.app?
Another point I did not understand why BSD is not installed in Ziphone 2.5. Could anyone explain this?

I can fix this
The iPhone is devided into 2 partitions; a system partition and a media partition. When it says you have 1.5? Gb left, that's on your media partition. To install applications, you have to save the application into /Applications. This is located on the "system" partition, a partition that only iTunes can access. We can access the media partition, but not the system one. To access the system one, you need to do a process called jailbreaking. Sound familiar?
Apps are stored on the system partition, in /Applications. This will have to change with the sdk, as the system partition only takes up to 300mb. The reason installer won't let you install apps is because you have used up those 300mb. Now that doesn't mean you have 300mb of apps, but 300mb of operating system (os x) of which about maybe 15-20mb would be apps.
To fix your issue, go into installer and install bosstool. What this does is move your applications folder to the media partition (the one with 1.5 or so fb left on your iPhone) which means that you can use up to all the memory that iTunes lets songs use. It will then create a symlink in / called Applications which will point to the applications on the media partition. Which means when iPhone asks for the applications, it as usual goes to the folder Applications, which in this case is a symlink to the real Applications folder somewhere else. So iPhone will just read from there. Think of it as a shortcut on your computer, when you double click on it, it takes you to an application/folder somewhere else.
If there are any typos, that's because I'm typing this from my iPhone :p
Need any more help? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
or ask on my blog at http://www.appledailytime$.com (replace $ with s)
or if you can't find bosstool, add this source to installer:
And I will update it to have bosstool within the next day.
thanks very much....
