    Answer: Firmware 2.1 made sure that applications couldn't get out of their own sandbox, so they can't access directories they don't 'own'. A solution is available, by searching "full access with MobileFinder" on this forum. You need to get MobileFinder out of the sandbox before it can traverse your entire file system.

    1. SSH into your iPod or start Terminal
    2. type cd /var/mobile/Applications
    3. type ls *
    4. find the folder (XYZ) with MobileFinder.app
    5. type cd XYZ
    6. type chmod 777 MobileFinder.app
    7. if you use Terminal, type su, then enter your root password (alpine)
    8. type cp MobileFinder.app /Applications
    9. if you made links in the Documents folder before, delete them!
    10. type mkdir /var/mobile/Documents
    11. type chmod 777 /var/mobile/Documents
    12. cd /var/mobile/Documents
    13. type ln -s / root
    14. type ln -s /var/mobile
    15. on your Springboard, go to "wiggle" mode and delete MobileFinder
    16. restart your iPod, there you go!



    Have fun.

    Yup this works for me, except it still might not show up, so install an app via cydia and you should see mobilefinder appear.

    It's an appstore application. You won't find it on Cydia
