    Hi im obviously on 2.0 JB and im doing good with a lot of this stuff including setting permissions...but not in this case. There are just way too many permissions that i need to change in this app manually for it to be humanly possible lol, so is there any quick shortcut I can do to set the permissions of everything in that folder, and also everything that is in folders inside the first folder

    In Mobile terminal or over SSH, enter a command similar to this:

    /bin/chmod -R Permissons Path

    For example:

    /bin/chmod -R 755 /Applications/MobileMail.app

    Simply choose the right permissions and the right directory and apply it to the base command.
