iPhone OS4 Jailbreak - Free up some space for your / partition.

After the Jailbreak of my iPhone 3GS using JailbreakMe.com, I tried to restore all my previous Jailbreak Apps. Unfortunately the / partition of my iPhone was quickly out of space and I wasn’t able to install all my apps.

Fortunately someone created a little script to free this partition by moving some system folders. Now I have 101MB of free space on it.

Thanks to the author of this script.

Here is a little how to:

  1. Add this repository in Cydia: http://biteyourapple.com/fmi
  2. Install FreeMyiPhone, it will install a script file named “fmi.sh” in your /var/mobile directory
  3. Open a Terminal application or connect to your device using SSH. Type su and then your password. Execute the script “./fmi.sh
  4. Follow the instructions, but DO NOT REMOVE Text input NOR Carriers
