    I hope someone can help. I moved my Apps and they are now in "/ Private Var Root Applications"

    I'd like to move them back because since doing that, I get "main script execution Error". I'd rather use give Boss Tools a try.
    This is what my phone looks like now in terms of space. I've no clue what this means/translates to, but my phone can't uninstall/install, etc. anything. Running various fixes just nukes my Installer to where it crashes instantly - so I go manually delete that then reinstall via Fugo.

    Filesystem 512-blocks Used Avail Capacity Mounted on
    /dev/disk0s1 545856 505616 34784 94% /
    devfs 35 35 0 100% /dev
    /dev/disk0s2 15244736 4172576 11072160 27% /private/var

    Can anyone tell me where the apps "should" go normally and how to move them back?

    There seems to be no fix to this "Main Script Execution Error" and no one seems to know why it's happening. I'm going to try a lower version of installer than 3.0b10 cuz Installer ALWAYS causes me problems.

    Gosh the forums are slow today. No one knows what directory the application folder normally resides on the phone is when viewing via Fugo, etc?

    Is the folder directly under "/" maybe?

    I'm trying to reverse/undo this command I did cuz it broke my installer's ability to communicate with the apps (apparently):

    "cd /"
    "cp -rf Applications /private/var/root/"
    "mv Applications Applications.old"
    "ln -s /private/var/root/Applications /Applications"
    If you type "ls -la / | grep Applications" now to check whether these commands worked, the final part of the line that's printed should say "Applications -> /private/var/root/Applications". IF it does not say this, STOP and go post in the forum thread with what it does say. If everything looks good, run the following command and then reboot your phone.

    "cd /"
    "rm -rf /Applications.old"
