So I noticed the folder /Developer/usr. It had all of the commands like in the original. But this "usr" folder is not locked. So I was wondering if I could somehow boot the Terminal from /Developer instead of /.

I don't quite understand what you're asking. By "boot the Terminal," do you mean run commands from there? As in, use the executables in /Developer/usr/bin instead of in /usr/bin?

If so you just set your the $PATH variable in your ~/.bash_profile (or ~/.bashrc, if it's sourced from bash_profile) to include that directory. Here's an article explaining how to do it. Take note of the final note there and put the Developer folder first; that way, if the same executable is found in /Developer/usr/bin as in /usr/bin or elsewhere, the Developer one will take precedence.

I tried what it said in the article. This is my path:



I've tried executing the commands I've added to /Developer/usr/bin but it doesn't work at all.

That's because your path needs to be /Developer/usr not just /Developer If you fix that it should work.

It doesn't 'read into' directories. So you need to specify the actual directory with the executable files in it, not it's parent.
