    This is a warning for anyone that has jailbroken 1.1.3. I just have done so then got the "You are running out of disk space message. So I thought I would use Boss Tools to relocate my Apps folder. Well now all the new 1.1.3 apps are gone DemoApp shows up on my springboard its like I'm in 1.1.3 but have all the old 1.1.2 apps. So until Boss Tools releases a revised version do not use it under 1.1.3!

    BTW - Now I have to restore.

    I noticed the same thing. But after some tinkering, I found out it does succeed in moving your apps. The tool just doesn't seem to make the symlink needed.

    So I just created it myself. The instructions are here.

    Don't think you'll need to restore...

    Hope that helps.

    It does work, but seems to put apps in the /Applications/Applications folder instead of just /Applications/ . After swapping the /Applications/Applications stuff into the /Applications folder, you get all the apps back...

    Indeed, Bosstool puts them in /private/var/Applications/Applications

    It also didn't create the symlink to that or the /private/var/Applications directory on my ipod.
