I cannot make any changes to my contact list, through the normal app, or through icloud, or through any 3rd party apps. Anything i delete/change/add doesnt stay. I remember I changed the permissions on some files during a previous jailbreak for some reason, so i think i must have set something to read only.
What files make up the contact list and what should the permissions be set to?
i have an iphone 4, ios5.1 with the untethered jailbreak and am using winscp to ssh

i fixed it so here's an update.
i ssh'd into the addressbook folder and set the folder to 777 (recursively)
i rebooted with redsn0w because it was tethered
all the contacts were gone but i had a backup with the app "excelcontacts" so i restored them
my contact list is now editable

All the files are in var/mobile/library/addressbook
Set owner to mobile, group to mobile (make sure not root)
Set user to read, write
Group to read
World to read
This Should work.
