    Alternatively you can Putty

    cp -Rp /Library/Ringtones /private/var/mobile/Library/
    mv /Library/Ringtones /Library/Ringtones.old
    ln -s /private/var/mobile/Library/Ringtones /Library/Ringtones
    rm -rf /Library/Ringtones.old

    That'll relocate the Ringtones.

    cp -Rp /System/Library/Fonts /private/var/mobile/Library/
    mv /System/Library/Fonts /System/Library/Fonts.old
    ln -s /private/var/mobile/Library/Fonts /System/Library/Fonts
    rm -rf /System/Library/Fonts.old

    That'll relocate the Fonts and free up much space on the small partition.

    cp -Rp /Applications /private/var/mobile/
    mv /Applications /Applications.old
    ln -s /private/var/mobile/Applications /Applications
    ln -s /private/var/mobile/Applications /private/var/root/
    rm -rf /Applications.old

    That'll relocate the Applications and symlink both possible places it could be looked for at."

    Why not just install Cybdia?? it's easier and opens you up to new Applications.

    Yes it does and eliminates the need for BSD Subsystem.Plus bosstool only frees up about 300MB of disk space which is not much. I have over 390MB Games and Applications on my iPhone and still have room for more stuff.
