    Hi, if you don't know what it is, iFile is an app from cydia that allows you to read/edit files in the ipod.
    It works fine and i don't have alot of problems with it, exept some files that i need to work with come up with strange letters/symbols.
    Like this..

    I just want to know if its possible to fix this so that i can read the files normally, are they supposed to come up like this, if so, why?
    Someone please help. Thanks..

    I believe that may be binary. Don't mess with those files.

    That's because binary converts to special characters.

    The binary converts into the special characters. I don't think you can read them.

    Documents that are binary, are documents that have been encoded into some proprietary format, therefore not human readable without a proper decoder, developed for that specific format.

    This has happened to me and to fix it I just opened the files with Property list editor instead of text viewer
