    eep!

    I made that stupid mistake while in ssh which is known as rushing!

    I accidently deleted the wrong file (I clicked wrong one as I was in a hurry) The file was a plist located in '/private/var/preferences/'

    Can anyone let me know the name of this file, and whether its safe to reboot iPad?

    Many thanks!

    The file is called AeneasCustomFlags.plist, and here is its content in case you want to recreate it.


    That's how it is on my iPad... Owner is Root and Group is Wheel.

    Incidentally, posting .plist files is against forum policy without permission of the copyright holder. Code removed.

    In the future, OP, I'd suggest just restoring the iPad if you didn't back up files.

    Thanks for the warning. I'll be more mindful next time.

    Yes I know, but I wasn't messing with that file so I didn't mow to back it up.

    Will be more careful in future
