    I am down to 10MB memory my phone is so slow and crashes wen looking at safari with any pictures on it...I NEED HELP!

    I tried the instruction below, but I am on firmare 3.01 so bosstools wont install...

    The system folder is located on the root partition, which is only 500MB. Since the firmware for your iPhone 3G (2.x) is stored in the /root partition, it doesn't leave a lot of room for other things. For example Cydia jailbroken apps are installed in the root partition.

    BigBoss has a utility called "BossTools" found in the Cydia installer that moves all your applications, system fonts and a few other things to the larger partition (/private/var).

    I have a iPhone 3G running firmware 2.1 and have installed BossTools and have moved all my apps, fonts from /root to /private/var and everything works fine. After running "BossTools", I now have 165MB free on my /root partition.

    For those interested in how it works, it moves the apps, fonts to the new location on /private/var and then creates symlinks (like shortcuts) in the original folder that point to the new location. If you know anything about Unix or Linux, you will understand.

    Note: Another method for those who jailbreak, is to use PwnageTool and increase the size of the root partition so it is bigger than 500MB. I think BigBoss' BossTool is safe and works fine, but the choice is yours.

    You could create the symlinks yourself

    These kind of problems are common due to residue left behind (or installed) by 3:rd party apps from e.g. Cydia.
    Just do a clean restore and I am 100% that the problem is gone - the chance is that you would still be OK after reinstalling yr current 3:rd party apps
    Do hope that helps
