    /bin/chmod Permissions Path

    That would translate to this (for a folder, let's say MobileMail.app)

    /bin/chmod -R 755 /Applications/MobileMail.app

    *The -R makes the command apply to the entire folder.

    Enter your specific commands via SSH or in MobileTerminal.

    Capitalization and spelling matter.

    P.S. Welcome to the Forums.

    if you need the commands:

    /bin/chmod 755 -R /[DIRECTORY]

    /bin/chmod 777 -R /[DIRECTORY]

    Thanks for the replies, but it still won't work. The first chmod worked (775) but this keeps happening when I try chmod the folder.
    iPod:/private/var/mobile root# chmod 777 -R /documents/
    chmod: cannot access `/documents/': No such file or directory
    And the documents folder is there. I also tried /bin/chmod and it didn't work and I also tried CDing to /bin/ but it still won't work.

    Does the capitalization of the /documents folder match what you entered into the command line? Try changing the directory to / beforehand.

    Doesn't matter anymore, I used CuteFTP instead so you can just right click it and CHMOD it manually, Super Monkey Ball works great now!

    There's no need to execute /bin/chmod, since /bin/ is in your path that is exported by profile every time you start a new session.
    Executing "chmod" is just fine and saves a lot of time, since you're recommending that it should be executed from MobileTerminal.
    Learn a little something about UNIX.

    This also doesn't matter; only capitalization.
