    easiest way to solve the space problem is to make sure you have community sources installed, then go to install in installer and scroll down to Utilities then look for Bosstool. install that and go back to home screen, click on boss tool, click on free disk space, click on relocate fonts.

    When thats done you will have an extra 80 something MB to play with for apps :)

    I have the space problem at the moment so as you said, I installed Bosstool then read the little thing about The partions the under the title Disk Space it says

    16 MB free out of 300 MB on /
    2532 MB free out of 15184 MB on /var

    I get the disk space warning in the installer but to me this look's like i have plenty more space. Any help

    P.S do rom's take up the app's space

    Open BossTools and move your fonts. You should gain about 90 mg up from the 16. This is the partition that apps load into.

    I did that and it went from 16 to 101 MB but as soon as it finished i got that message again i clicked dismiss and then it showed me 101 MB free. If you are on 1.1.3 would moving apps Work

    Boss Tool is the answer to your question.

    Definitely one of the first apps that should be downloaded when jailbreaking, along with BSD SubSystem, Open SSH, and SummerBoard.
