idroid not loading
so i went through the whole installation process on my mac. it worked, so i turned off iphone and it told me to choose which one i want, when i try and choose idroid it loads the console. ive read that i can happen because of 5 images that are not placed in the correct folder like private/var instead of private/var/idroid. i need a way to fix thanks.
Boot to iOS, plug in to your computer and use DiskAid / iFunbox / iPhoneBrowser to navigate to your /private/var/ folder and move the 5 images to the /private/var/idroid folder, then reboot.
Alternately, you can boot iOS and use SSH to do this, etc. Last but not least, you can do this from the device by purchasing and installing iFile and using it to complete the move. It's well worth the $1.99 or $2.99 it is in the Cydia store right now in any case.
Once you've moved them, make sure ensure they have the proper group and owner information -- I seem to recall that they have to be owned by root and in the mobile group, but that can be quickly confirmed in the install instructions on the iDroid page and I'm arguably just being lazy by not going and checking right now.
That said, this is assuming you did a manual install. If you ran Bootlace, it should have put them into the correct location automatically and completed the permissions changes if necessary. Can you let us know how you installed?
