    Default Create Shortcuts on iPhone File System
    Hi! I want to create a Shortcut into the iPhone file system... how can I do it?

    What I want is to mod the iPhone Video Recorder to save the videos into the camera roll by replacing the folder where it saves the videos to a shortcut for the camera roll, does anyone knows how to do it?

    You would want to use the ln command after ssh-ing. Ssh into your phone and type

    ln -s [Directory to the camera roll] [Directory to the iPhone Video Recorder Save Folder with its name]

    so for example,

    ln -s /User/Media/DCIM/100APPLE /User/Library/Videos

    iFile has built-in support for creating "shortcuts," or as they are formally referred to in the Unix file system, "symbolic links."
