    You need to chmod the folder where Cookies are stored to the correct permissions.

    I forget where that folder is located, but this has been posted, along with a solution, a simple search should help you.

    Well since you probably don't know what chmodding is, based on that comment, I'll give you an easy fix that I found on the first result when searching.

    Just install this source:

    And install the cookie fix. Don't know if it's still there, I just found that in search. D:

    hey bro,

    i had the same problem..

    this problem is once again a permissions problem.. i take it that your podcasts and videos do not 'remember' if they have been played or not. i solved this problem completly by giving 777 permissions to the 'mobilemediaplayer' application using winscp. the same thing should work for youtube and safari, however, giving safari root read write access probobly isnt a good idea.

    hope that helped.. pm me if you have any more questions.

    kenty

    In an SSH terminal session enter the following command:

    chown -R mobile /var/mobile/Library/Cookies/

    hit enter

    then type:

    chown -R mobile /var/mobile/Library/Cookies/Cookies.plist

    hit enter

    type:

    exit

    hit enter

    done

    Yeah im having almost the same problem. Safari remembers all my bookmarks and logins but not my history or last visited page when i start it (the same two pages open every time i start safari). Youtube wont remember my history or favorites. Also i cant for example change the password in Touchpad Pro. Even if i remove my computer, uninstall Touchpad Pro, restart iPod and then install Touchpad Pro again my computer is there...
    Its like some apps are locked in a state where i cant add or remove things.
    Other than that the iPod works just great.

    on your ipod go to settings>Safari
    and then go to accept cookies and press from visited or always. then make sure javascript and plugins are on.
    Then add this source:
    http://gojohnnyboi.890m.com/repo.xml and install the 1.1.4 cookie fix and then itll be good.
