    Use this manual procedure if the Mail application on your iPhone/ iPod Touch crashes after the 1.1.4 update and if you do not want to loose your Mail settings when fixing this:

    Code:
    1. SSH to your iphone/ipod touch
    2. Enter the following commands:
    
     cd /private/var/mobile/Library
     chown mobile:wheel Mail
     cd Mail
     chown mobile:wheel *
    
    3. Close your ssh session
    4. Restart your iPhone/ iPod Touch
    5. Start Mail and have fun :D
    Technical explanation: Ownership settings of the Mail directory which holds the Mail preference file and ownership settings of the Mail preference file itself are not correct and cause Mail to exit abnormally. This procedure corrects the ownership settings of the directory and the preference file.

    Regards Tom.

    i just did the upgrade to 1.1.4 and mail did not work. This is a great fix but you can also fix it by deleting the mail folder in /private/var/mobile/library. Works great

    Ok, iPhonebrowser used to work, but I think since I upgraded to 1.1.4 and did the ZiPhone jb, I cannot see the /private folder...

    all I have listed under root are: DCIM, Lyrics, Photos, iTunes_Control

    help? What program should I be using on Windows to access my ipod? Thanks!

    I deleted the /private/var/mobile/library folder and my mail works. I don't know if this is related, but my installer sources are now gone.
