This has nothing to do with Safari or your Music...it means to put it simply you have too many apps/data installed in the 300MB root partition that contains Apps, System files, etc.

Two solutions...a) delete some apps and b) search for a method to move your apps to the second Media partition which is the same one as your Music/Videos, etc.

It's problems like these that have made me decide to just wait until February for the "official" third party apps via the SDK.

I have to admit, though, that the iPhone -- in combination with the official web apps -- currently does just about everything that I want.

App for the Fix from NewAttiPhone.com

Quick easy way to solve this problem
Instead of going through all the coding go to NewAttiPhone.com
and add the repository to intaller
NewAttiPhone.com/repo.xml
and download the Fix for it
Quick, Simple, Easy, and fast

Can anyone confirm this "fix"? I have a 1.1.1 phone that is jailbroken and unlocked. Thank you in advance.
I took the dive and tried it. It does work, it just moves everything to the bigger partition. Wait an additional day before doing it, I'll post again to confirm if it's all good.

It sucks because I never had this problem before, but after a recent restore back to a jailbroken 1.1.2, it popped up as I was installing stuff.

Oh, I also checked out that repo.XML in FireFox to find the actual zip file that the fix was in. Downloaded it, scanned with Norton, opened it and the file inside it was "fix.sh". Extracted that, scanned with Norton, and then converted it to a .txt file, and here's what it said:


#!/bin/sh
mkdir /private/var/root/ROOT_Applications
cp -r /Applications/* /private/var/root/ROOT_Applications
rm -rf /Applications && ln -s /private/var/root/ROOT_Applications /Applications

So yeah, just looking at that, it's definitely not malicious, just commands.

Hope that helps, glad I took the risk, I guess. I understand your reluctance to give it a shot, I was skeptical myself (haha, obviously).

Also, you can just use BossTool, it's in Installer.

I tried the boss tool in the past and it locked in the middle, freezing the phone, and since only half the files were moved it corrupted my whole phone forcing a complete restore and re-jailbreak. Might have been a fluke but I have seen other posts with problems using the same program. I would not recommend using it unless you enjoy an adventure working on your phone.

Thank you all for replying. I ended up taking the plunge and installing it. But I did it from another source on installer. Seems like there are a few out there. Anyhow, it worked great. No more messages and I have since installed some new apps without any problems. Be sure to try out the new MobileScrobbler. It rocks!
