    I dunno, there's a few files in MobileFinder that can't delete. When I hit the delete button nothing happens. It's weird, cause some files it will delete. Fx I tried downloading something with the new ******* app. I didn't wanna finish the download so I went to the folder that had the album I downloaded in it and hit delete on it, but nothing happens.

    Is it something I can change in mobilefinder's settings or what?

    yeah it's weird. I mean it aint the biggest problem since we can just delete via winSCP and such, but it's still annoying if you need to delete something quickly.

    Another thing I notcied that only works with some files is the "email" feature in mobilefinder. Some files it will email just fine, but there are other files it wont email.

    Porque?

    I can't get it to do anything. Must be some sort of permission problem.

    Trying to rename an icon but when I go back into the theme folder afterwards, it retains the old name. The changes don't stick. I'm guessing that the Finder application doesn't have the necessary permission to change things.

    But if so how to fix this?

    I notice that the finder app has delay.
    You have to quit it and go back in to actually see that actual change.
    And things you deleted in the finder, Goes to the trash folder or something.
    They still occupy space on your iPod

    I see.. As for the trash can, didn't know there was one.. Where is it? And when I find it it's safe to delete EVERYTHING in it, right?

    chances are that the ******* app is still running ....locking the files.
    a simple reboot should fix this

    Go into Finder,
    Press the little Apple logo on the top bar.
    Then you should see Trash

    Try changing the Settings by selecting the Settings tab next to Finder.

    Also, rename Summerboard.app to just Summerboard. It will then get removed.
