    Default Adding search engine to iPhone/iPad
    I was able to change the plist for the default search engine too add another option (dogpile).

    It worked great, for about a day.

    Then the extra option I addded in the plist isnt there anymore and my only options are the stock search engines.

    I why the plist would change, it makes no sense......

    Did you reboot or respring at some point? Maybe the the plist is part of a default settings cache that gets refreshed.

    Where is it located?
