Convert .plist into xml?
The online converter I used to use isn't working anymore... I used this: Convert Apple Property list from binary to text XML
Does anyone know any other way to make my .plists readable and editable? (im on windows.)

install erica's utilities from cydia. after that you can just execute
plutil -c xml1 filename.plist
directly on your iphone (either via SSH or using mobile terminal) and there you go.

if you mean my method using plutil, it just converts the existing file so you can open, read and alter it afterwards. easiest method available as far as I know.

Thank you NetMage! The online converter has been sketchy with downtime, with this I could make my own online converter!iPhone 3G
Please read again I only give one warning - thanks!

I coded this web based app to convert the .plist and .strings to xml.

All I am finding is online or mac based solutions, and I could use the online ones but I am looking for a batch converter. Anyone got any ideas for a windows app?
