    Trying to delete the European volume cap off my iPod touch, I want to open a .plist file from the iPod. But since I'm a Windows user, I can't open the file in a correct way (it reads some strange characters, not quite an XML document).

    Do you know any way in which I can open a .plist file in Windows ?

    It is an XML document, it's just been encoded. You might be better off looking for that specific file on Google. Once you get an unencoded file, you can make the changes that you want to change and put it back onto your iPod. Your iPod doesn't care whether or not the file is encoded.

    Great, thanks! But it's possible the file is different per device (i.e. because the iPod's got another language or it's from another country) ? It's about the ReginalVolume.plist file.

    Woah, that works super trankillity, thanks! I assume I can upload the edited file without having to convert it back ?
