11-13-2007, 01:04 AM #1WinSCP "No Space Left On Device"...
All of a sudden, in WinSCP, I'm getting a "No Space Left On Device" error whenever I try to copy any file to my iPhone, in any directory. It's worked great up to this point.
Also, my Installer.app seems to be screwed as well. If I try to install something (anything), it gets almost to the end then goes black, then quits to the springboard. I reinstalled and downgraded to an earier version, and now with every install it fails and says, "Error during install script execution!"
Is there something specific that I might have installed that would have hosed these things...?

well it seems to me like all of these could be linked back to the lack of space. What you didnt mention, although I could assume is that you DO have space, but its just saying you dont? Sync it back to itunes and check if you are truely out of space. If you are not, then try deleting something and putting it back. If that fails, then its probably something more. If a restore doesnt work, not sure what else can help you besides looking through the file structure and seeing if there is anything abnormal.

I think i read somewhere that the max space available for apps is 300mb. Im not sure if this is true.

same here, installer.app quits when installing anything and winSCP - no space on device. I have 1gb free on the phone.
what apps do you have installed?? or have tried to install? this started happening to me when i tried to install cameraPro. it quit during install and since then its been doing this.
I only have 28 megs worth of apps installed

I have a iPod Touch and hit this same issue. After installing a bunch of stuff I had a 100% full /dev/disk0s1 partition.
I found the simplest way to solve this for me was to simple move the /Applications folder to a spot on the second partition that has tons of free space.
This is what I did.
mkdir /private/var/Applications (this is where I want stuff to end up)
cp -Rf /Applications/* /private/var/Applications/ (make a copy of everything in the Applications folder)
mv /Applications /Applications.old (get the /Applications dir out of the way)
ln -s /private/var/Applications /Applications (Make a static link to the new Applications directory location from / )
after verifying this worked I removed the /Applications.old folder.
ls -la /Applications
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root admin 24 Jan 11 20:08 /Applications -> private/var/Applications
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/disk0s1 300M 259M 39M 88% /
devfs 15K 15K 0 100% /dev
/dev/disk0s2 15G 110M 15G 1% /private/var
Hope this helps... I now can install as many apps as I want and not have to worry much about running out of space.

This sure has become a wide spread problem. Anyone moving your apps folder remember you must also check your fstab for noexec. If you can free up about 6mb of space, you can install bosstool and it will help you move apps, ringtones, and wallpaper.-BigBoss

Tibsfox, thanks a lot for that information mate!! Now I managed to upload the Space Monkey game over without these stupid limitations. I think PWNAGE TOOL 2.0 allows to set more then 500 mb to the partition, I just didn't know what this was at the time =)

Yep, this is going to be great for me especially, I am a Application mad person Lol.
