    Hey I have a cool game but I want to be able to save it and I can't because of the permissions, how do I change the permissions of a app so I can save, I know how to SSH and use WinSCP,and I also have the Squid app on my iPod if you can do it with it, so can anyone tell me how?

    Thanks!

    Which file do I change the permissions for it? I'm trying to let EvolutionRBG save files.

    Via the command line:

    /bin/chmod xxx PathToFile

    [xxx = the permissions; 755, 4755, etc.]

    Throw in a "-R" (no quotes) after the chmod to set the permissions recursively, for folders.

    /bin/chmod -R 755 PathToFolder

    Ok, so say you wished to set permissions to a folder in the / directory, named pizza.

    Generally, you would use the unix tool "chmod" to change permissions like so:

    since its a folder, you would use -R for recursively.


    Code:
    /bin/chmod -R 755 /pizza
    or just in a terminal:

    Code:
    chmod -R 755 /pizza

    NOTE: if your using the terminal in WinSCP use:

    Code:
    chmod -R 0755 /pizza

    Google Putty, or you can use a terminal application on your iPod.
