    Hi

    I was trying to put some apps on my iPod Touch last night, but was having some problems!

    I was transferring psx4all over a USB connection (Using Total Commander and T-Pot plugin), and although the app appears in my springboard, when I launch it, it just freezes and goes back to the springboard.

    I thought it was maybe something to do with the file permissions, however I installed squid in the same manner and the same thing is happening.

    Is there a way I can change the file permissions on a PC or is this not what the problem is?

    Thanks

    Stu

    Turns out it was a problem with file permissions.

    Thanks for your help.

    yeah, every time I manually install an app now, I ssh chmod -R a+x /Applications/*

    Seems to keep me from getting any problems so far
