I have a jailbroken iPhone 4s with iOS 5.1.1. One of the things that always bothers me is that apps can't share files with each other. So I thought I can circumvent that behavior by creating a symlink to a folder in /var/mobile/.
For my first try I used the Dolphin Browser from the AppStore (since you can download nearly everything with it). I renamed the original Documents folder in the apps folder and created a symbolic link to /var/mobile/SharedDocs. Apparently that doesn't work. Trying to download something simply fails in Dolphin.
Long story short: Did anyone else try something similar with success? Any other ideas I can try? Do I need to program some kind of mobilesubstrate extention?
This is my first post here and I'm sorry if I did something wrong ;)
P.S. Actually I didn't replace the Documents folder but the Downloads folder. Here are the full pathes to the directories: - Original Download Folder: /var/mobile/Applications/734.../Documents/Downloads -> renamed that folder for backup purpose. - created a link with "ln -s /var/mobile/SharedDocs Downloads" in /var/mobile/Applications/734.../Documents
