    Hi ,
    I am currently running Windows XP Home SP2 and i want to decrypt some .plist files...This can be done by converting them to .xml but i have windows and i can't convert them. Can you suggest me a way of doing this on Windows ?

    Thanks,
    omokas

    To convert from a binary plist to an xml plist on the iPod, type this in terminal:

    plutil -c xml1 random.plist

    Note though, that although readable the xml version will take up a lot more space so if you want to convert back just:

    plutil -c binary1 random.plist

    Hope it works for you.
