    I have some themes that have multiple backgrounds. I am trying to use mobile finder to rename the Wallpaper.png for the theme, but when I change the name and hit the done button it kicks me back the the theme folder without making the change. I know this works because I have done it before but somewhere along the line it stopped working for me.

    Any suggestions?

    I'm having this very same problem. Can't seem to do anything in mobile finder anymore. Including copying, moving, pasting, setting permissions, renaming, etc. to all files. Anyone know how to fix this problem???

    no actually it works fine - theres just 2 glitches.

    1) if you rename a picture to the same name as a picture you have already seen in that finder session (lsince you opened the app) it will show the little preview icon from that pic. but it still is the correct picture and named correctly.

    2) you must respring to change your wallpaper otherwise the change doesnt take effect.

    It has to do with permissions in 1.1.3 and 1.1.4. Just do a google search for Mobile Finder fix or something like that and you'll find what changes you need to make to allow Finder to modify your files.
