    MobileFinder doesn't allow me to set the permissions of anything, nor does it allow to to rename or delete most files/folders.

    Is there any way to fix these problems?

    It allows me to set permissions. One thing I can't figure out is how to show files inside a .app file (and then edit those prefs). When you tap it it executes the app. Is there a way to get it to show contents?

    Add the trejan repo (I believe) to fix gthe aility to set and rename.
    In settings turn off application launch to see the contents of an app.
    My settings dont save though when I close the app so you might need to reset all your settings to how you like them everytime you open it.

    Nevermind, I found a manual fix using Terminal with some google searching. Works great now.

    Edit: Augh, but after the fix, MobileFinder no longer saves the settings when I close it, like you cantcatchme939.

    Mind giving a link or some instructions? Thanks.

    Never mind, found it. For those who have the problem:

    Issue these commands in terminal or via SSH, it will fix Mobile Finder so it can properly change filenames, delete files, rename, etc.:

    chmod 4755 /Applications/Finder.app/Finder
    chmod 4755 /bin/cat /bin/chmod /usr/bin/chown /bin/cp /bin/ls
    chmod 4755 /bin/mkdir /bin/mv /bin/rm /bin/rmdir /bin/unlink


    IN order for MobileFinder to remember the settings:

    Enter Terminal and type:

    chmod +s /Applications/Finder.app/Finder
    chmod 775 /private/var/mobile/Library/Preferences/com.googlecode.MobileFinder.plist

    How about a fix for mobfindr for 2.0 fw

    As u guys know mobile finder for 2.0 fw was cracked n this app has all the features that a jaibroken fon needs; Some user @ hackint0sh found a way to "free" it allowin u to acces system files n folders, but the thing is that u cant use most of its features when navigatin system files. U cant copy/paste for example or delete stuff. On the user directory it works fine, but when messin around with the ROOT files there's nothin much u can do but just look @ the files

    . Anyone knows a command like code that could fix this permisions issue. There has to be a code that gives it root priviledges
