Thread: /bin/ permission denied...cross-device link?!?

  1. #1
    Default /bin/ permission denied...cross-device link?!?
    so, i was following this tutorial:
    http://code.google.com/p/iphone-elite/wiki/MoveApps

    which deals with moving the Applications directory into the media partition and creating a symlink to it to allow you to have more space for installing themes and apps and whatnot.

    everything on my phone has been working great so far. i upgraded to 1.1.1 and got ssh setup, i have installer and have a bunch of themes and apps installed. i noticed that i'm running rather low on space, and i came across this in another thread. it worked for that user(can't remember who it was now), but when i tried it i got the error shown in the attached screenshot. also tried through winscp and got the same thing.

    did i miss something somewhere along the way?

    I also am having a problem with this:

    # PATH=$PATH:/var/root/bin:/opt/iphone/bin
    # xwidg
    zsh: permission denied: xwidg

    I just ended up doing this:

    # mkdir ~/Applications
    # ln -s ~/Applications /Widgets

    I was playing around with moving applications to ~/Applications but I haven't gotten any to work there yet. I'll have to fiddle some more...

    of course, I backed up my Applications directory with the rest of my iPhone filesystem using WinSCP before doing any of this

    I got all my apps moved over to ~/Applications/ except for Lights Off.app and a couple of others.
    I was surprised to find that even maps, stocks, and many other preloaded apps worked fine there as well.

    I did have to edit /etc/fstab

    removing ',noexec' from line 2

    Anyway, now I have a ton of free space on my root directory and can install more apps
