    I need to change a few file permissios. I have tried using
    mobileterminal but I always get errors. Is there
    anyway in ifile? Or another way?

    I can use ifunbox (USB file access) but openssh doesn't work anymore for
    some reason (yes I have it installed)

    sry bad typing it's hard on an iPod.

    Why do you need to change permissions?

    Through MobileTerminal, type in:
    login
    root
    [Your Password; Most likely 'alpine']
    chmod [###] [File/Folder Path]

    The ones in brackets, you have to fill out.

    @metamaater, to get pwnplayer to work

    @above does that change them to 755?

    It should work now, have a look

    Edit: 755? No idea, I have changed permission via iFunbox once though, not sure how i did that. Never mind, I'm pretty sure it was openSSH. Sorry...
    You could still try it, it can't hurt afaik

    Stuff installed with Cydia usually have permissions fixed. Pwnplayer probably just doesn't support your device and/or your firmware.
