    hi
    i ssh'd into my ipod so i could edit a plist
    i converted it from binary to xml (plutil -convert xml1 N72AP.plist) but when i open it with notepad, it shows everything converted, but its only a few lines and most of it goes off to the right
    if i look at it on ifile on my device, it looks nothing like this
    this has happened to every file i open with notepad

    thats because of work wrap.

    You can take a plist straight from the device, then open worpad, choose file -> open file and choose the plist. It will be formated just like on your device. No conversion needed.
