    I am in 1.1.3 and I am trying to change permission on some stuff like games and other programs. I can't use FTPcute all other servers but I have squid and finder. I heard that you can change the permission by checking the boxes for Owner Group and Other and they hit apply. I did that but the problem is that after when I go back to the file I changed permission in, it just go back to it's original persmission. I tried this with squid and finder on one of my gba rom as testing but it would never change to the permission i want it to... what should i do?

    Install OpenSSH, download Putty from http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/ log in with username root, password alpine and change permissions like so:

    Code:
    chmod perms file
    
    perms can be something like +ax (executable) or 777 (execute, read, write for all users) and file is the file or directory you want to change permissions on.

    You can also change permissions of all files/folders by doing
    Code:
    chmod -R 777 directory
    
    Hope this helps

    BTW if on mac, ssh is already installed so just open Terminal.app in Utilities and use the command
    Code:
    ssh root@.ip.address.of.your.iphone.or.ipod.here

    You need your iPod to be connected to your network via WiFi for my method to work.

    The only other way is to use the Terminal (Term-v100 or something like that) from Installer.app to access your iPod/iPhone from the device, then you can run the commands I gave from the Terminal, you'll just have to navigate the old fashioned way. Use cd to change directory, and ls to list the directory contents.

    install ProFTPd then and use an FTP client.

    When you first install SSH, reboot the iPod by holding the power button and sliding to power off, then power on. Keep trying to connect as the iPod will have to generate some keys, and when it does, your SSH client will ask if you want to save the authorisation key fingerprint, and you answer yes to it, then boom, log yourself in.
