    That happened to me today... I just did a restore and re-jailbroke it... I have no idea what it was that went wrong when I used the new touchfree yesterday. Make sure you're using the newest version of touchfree, maybe?

    That usually happens because the apps don't have Executable privaleges applied to them. Set the /Applications folder and all its contents appropriately and you should be all set.

    755, although overkill for the majority of things makes a great fallback.

    Right click on the .app file, go to properties and put 0755 in the box that says octal and then tick the box that says set group,owner and permissions recursively. You need to do this for each application.
