    I would guess since you're on 1.1.3 and apps now run under mobile, you'll need to put the dump into /var/mobile/wp instead.

    I'm currently downloading it to try this myself.

    im on 1.1.2 now. I used winzip to unzip the file. Is that what ur supposed to do?
    And it is detecting the file (i think) because when the file isn't there it just crashes right away on start.

    Okay well I've got it running on my ipod.
    It's worlking fine under root/library actually. So yeah.
    I'd certainly use WinRAR (google it) to extract rather than winzip.
