    Why cant Safari open local files??

    seriously how come
    file://(file location) doesnt work

    i have a hacked touch so i made a file hello.html in /var/root/
    then open up safari and went to
    file://var/root/hello.html
    and i get the error "safari cant open the page because it is a local file"
    ok so tell me if you can get past this?

    and also i have 1.1.2 firmware, so if you have 1.1.3 firmware and know what you are doing please try this just in case safari got updated. thanks

    I'm looking for the answer to this question, also. I'll continue researching and if I find the answer, I'll post it here.
