    Default [HOW-TO] Set Permission to 755, Fix Apps that crash after installation
    ***This method DOES NOT work with firmwares 1.1.3+***
    For 1.1.3/4 follow the guide right HERE!


    Go to Installer.app then hit the Productivity folder
    [

    Install the file manager "Squid"




    Go to your SpringBoard and open Squid


    Go to the Applications folder


    Choose the applications that is needed to be fixed, in my case it was CallD


    Open the file that is named after the application (it is the name of the aplications most of the time)


    Then, Lastly, make sure that your green boxes are checked the same way mine are checked and then click Apply

    great post! just the pics alone are more than enough for anybody that's a newbie.

    and for those who still don't know, these instructions & pics also apply for using Mobilefinder app in setting permissions.

    Yes. It usually happens when you install Apps manually.

    so the best way to change the permission is to install the squid....

    I have mobile finder on my Iphone...
    If I made this settings on my Iphone means it will run the application succesfull right?

    so no need for me to install the squid...

    pls correct me if im wrong...

    I found one application on my Iphone which on the attrivutes, on the Other; the write option is crossed, will i un crossed it? to make it work properly...

    does anyone knows if com.apple.itunes.lock_sync permission is 755 or 644???
    please help

    How can I get the permissions to stay when I transfer from winscp to my computer(xp)? I am trying to create a program for an installer source but once I zip the file, the 0755 permission is gone.
