    How about an app that allows you to change permissions on your iPod just as you would do in SSH? I know you can in mobilefinder, but some people have a hard time figuring it out, and it's annoying if you have a lot of files to change. I was thinking you would open up the app and be looking at your file system. Then you can go to the folder you want and select all the files you want. Then, you choose "set permissions" and choose 755 or 777. Just thinking aloud...

    Um, term-vt100 much?

    To change a single file:

    chmod -R xxx /blah/blah2/file.file

    To change all files and folders within a folder (in which case is folder hihihi)

    chmod -R xxx /blhable/hihihi/*

    I know that term-vt100 works, but I can't remember all that code just off the top of my head. I'm just suggesting a GUI to change permissions easily for dumb people like me
