    it can download files such as .zip .tar .gz .mp3 and more. You can add more file formats by editing a .plist file stored at /System/Library/Internet Plug-Ins/File Download Plugin.webplugin/info.plist There you can see the kind of files you can download. The downloaded files are stored at /var/root/Downloads
    I hope this helps you!

    Just be careful though, I saw a "1.1.3 safari file://" "patch" under the 1.1.3 section and tried it... sent my ipod immediately into recovery mode.

    Might have just been my ipod, but annoying nonetheless.

    Speaking of the download plugin, has anyone gotten HistoryDL, the old method of downloading things, to work in 1.1.3? For those who don't know, HistoryDL is an app that pulls the history from Safari and allows you to choose any URL you visisted to download. So it can download all sorts of file formats, including images and entire webpages for later viewing. And there's no need to switch it on and off to switch between streaming mp3s and downloading mp3s.

    I got HistoryDL to install in 1.1.3, and it runs, but it doesn't display any of my Safari history - it's just blank. I can access config and choose where the downloads go, but that's it.

    just to let people know, the download plugin works fine on 1.1.3.

    You don't need netservices installed to use it.
