    Hi.

    So, I found a .png file on the internet for a slider, and i'm trying to get it on my ipod through sendshare (uploading the png to sendshare and then downloading from iShare), but I can't. I know where to DL it, private/var/stash/themes, I think it was. Not sure offhand, but I'm trying to change the permissions on the var and private folders so I can DL from sendshare to the correct folder. Problem is, changing the permissions with mobilefinder, when i change the permissions and hit done, the permissions are automatically changed back to default. Is there a way around this?

    By the way, I'm downloading the slider for use w/ winterboard if that makes any difference

    You have to make sure MobileFinder, if you're using the Cydia version, has 7777 permissions, including Sticky Bit.

    Use WinSCP to do it. Set the permissions on Finder to 7777.

    Why the hell would you go through all the trouble of uploading to SendShare, downloading it through iShare, and the moving it, when you can just SSH it to /var/stash/Themes.xxxxx/THEMENAME/Bundles/com.apple.TelephonyUI?

    Install OpenSSH

    Download WinSCP

    Open WinSCP on comp, open Settings on iPod

    Open WiFi on iPod, and click the blue arrow to find the IP

    Type IP into WinSCP, make sure it on port 22 and SFTP protocol

    username: root

    password: alpine

    Login, navigate to where I said, and do all that stuff. Right clicking allows you to tpye in permissions (need to be higher than 444)
