    this will be great once we get a true finder app or filebrowser for 2.0 with copy/paste/delete/create folder/unzip/unrar functions... until then I havent much use for it.

    I use it for downloading songs from Seekpod, probably one of the most common uses for this SafariDL plugin.

    When it comes to viewing the files locally, MobileFinder is only $1.99 in the appstore and is pretty feature rich given the heavy constraints its under.

    If you're jailbroken, however, you can create a Symlink to the Downloads folder to view/listen to your files there, or just create a Playlist in vlc4iphone if you're downloading music and such as I am.

    Creating a symlink is a chore through the terminal, and since Cyberduck doesn't offer it natively through a GUI, I chose to do it in WinSCP as shown below:



    Just find your MobileFinder.app application folder in /var/mobile/Applications, then browse to the Documents folder inside of that folder with all the numbers. You're not browsing inside of the .app folder, the Documents folder is just outside.

    Right Click > Create New > Link

    Then Name the Symlink whatever you want in the top text field, and your target in the second text field is /var/mobile/Library/Downloads/

    Here's what it looks like once you're all set:







    Hope this helps

    I've edited the SafariDL plugin's Info.plist to include PDF files for download.

    To install this, you'll need to SSH to your phone and make sure your SafariDL Plugin is enabled so you can browse to:

    /System/Library/Internet Plug-Ins/File Download Plugin.webplugin/



    Next extract the Info.plist file from the zip file attached below and copy it into the folder above, overwriting the original Info.plist file.

    Now You'll be able to download PDF files.



    *Remember to disable the SafariDL Plugin after so that you can view the PDF file, otherwise you'll be prompted to download it again :P

    I'm getting the same thing under 2.0.1 so its not that. We must be missing something. Cant figure it out though.

    x999x please help.

    EDIT: Actually I see the problem. The link for me is /private/var/mobile/Library/Downloads. I needed the "private" in there and now it works.

    Pretty sweet!

    Are you sure its 2 actual folders? One may be a folder and the other is a shortcut to it.

    Has anyone tried making a link to Mxtube for MobileFinder?. I cant seem to get it to work. The folder gets created but cannot access it through MF.

    x999x - Did you notice that symlinks made with WinSCP dont show up when FTPing from a Mac? Or is it just me?
