    You change permissions to get certain apps to work properly. You can do it through a terminal app on your iPod or with a Terminal in your SSH client.

    Permissions let people do stuff.
    You, Others, Everyone (I believe)
    There are 3 numbers, 4, 2, and 1.
    4 is read
    2 is write
    1 is execute
    so 777 = read + write + execute for You, Others, and Everyone.

    open up WinSCP and connect to your iPod, then find the file (or folder) you want to change the permissions for and right click it, then hit "properties" and then u should be able to change the Permissions...
