    Works great but as mentioned in the comments on the wiki you must make sure the NOEXEC flag is removed from fstab.

    /etc/fstab

    Other than that works like a charm.

    How much room for apps do you get by default? - also I presume that when an app puts files in the var/media section (ie; where the phone usually stores things like photos...) this doesn't eat into the apps space?


    Thanks in advance.

    Easy, you need to install OpenSSH first Also, Services wouldn't be too bad either, as it controls whether SSH is on or not.

    Default Did it
    But when i brought up the list it did not look exactly like "lrwxr-xr-x 1 root admin 25 Oct 12 22:31 Applications -> /private/var/Applications" i did not have the "Applications" at the end of any line. so i assume that i have to do the other steps that were listed. But i don't understand this "You'll have to remove the NOEXEC flag from /etc/fstab to be able to launch applications after this manipulation." how is this accomplished?

    ps. thank you Imahottguy

    got the line correct but still dont understand the noexec. and how do you see available space in the installer app?
