    Default how to increase system memory for installing appli in iphone
    hi all,

    i had unlocked my iphone 8GB using the "Ziphone" tool.
    there was only 300Mb space provided, in which i can install new applications.

    Now i have ran out of that space and unable to install new application using the "Installer.app"(i still have 5 Gb space left, where i can storesongs and videos)

    Can any one tell me how to increase the system space??

    Learn how to use SSH and do a search for "application sym link" to move your apps to the other partition.

    go to installer and download "BossTools"

    when your done

    open it and you should know what to do from there

    Use SSH and 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.

    In your installer app download BossTool, the only thing is you have to move everything in this order Ringtones, Application and then Fronts, even though it tells you to move fronts, ringtone and then application last please do not do it in that order are it can hang up your phone. Trust me I know from experience.

    In the future, if you ever need to Restore and want to re-jailbreak, use iLiberty+. There is an option to have it move ringtones and fonts during the process.
    Apples taste good.

    same question but for 2.2.1, can we update this plz?

    I believe since the new firmware update of 2.0, all applications, Jailbroken and AppStore apps, are saved into the directory, /var... Which is your larger partitioned hard drive... from your capacity picture below your post, it looks like your pretty full up on space, You might look into getting rid of some music you don't ever listen to.

    you might also look into getting rid of some jailbroken ringtones, I believe they might be saved on the / partition...

    Hope this helps

    Well, if it's memory you want you can get a new program (it's free before you ask) called .plist that'll give you quite a bit of extra 'memory' by creating a virtual memory via swap files, you can download it here with instructions: How to Increase iPhone Memory via Virtual Memory Swap Files

    This method is tested for 3.x not sure what would happen if you tried it. Haha
    Also he is looking for more space to store applications. He is not looking for virtual memory. This might boost performance but as for space might not do to much for him. Haha
