    does finder work properly in 1.1.4 because I can never delete or move anything. But this is cool.

    It does for me, but I honestly can't remember if I had to modify it in any way.

    @silentkilla - great find, thanks!

    @pingwhen - do this to get finder to work:

    chmod 4755 /Applications/Finder.app/Finder
    chmod 4755 /bin/cat /bin/chmod /usr/bin/chown /bin/cp /bin/ls
    chmod 4755 /bin/mkdir /bin/mv /bin/rm /bin/rmdir
    chmod 4755 /var/mobile/Library/Preferences/com.googlecode.MobileFinder.plist

    why is this better than the built in video player? It doesn't play any formats that aren't supported by it. No? So what is the point. If it played .avi files then we'd have something.

    This app is a standalone player. You can copy your media directly to your device (drag and drop) instead of being force to sync via iTunes.

    AVPlayer .01 crashes everytime I try to play a downloaded vid or mp3, anyone else having the same problem?
    On .02, it just keeps going to their dev web page.
    Help please. =( Thanks in advance.

    The point is that you don't have to sync your media in iTunes to playback. You just simply need to have them on the iPhone. So you can download media to your iPhone, SCP media to your iPhone, etc. and you'll be able to playback right away without syncing in iTunes first.

    You're supposed to use MobileFinder to open the media files. When you hit AVPlayer on the SpringBoard, it'll either playback the last file opened or it'll bring you to the developer's web page (which you should've READ since it tells you all of this) if you have never opened a media file before.

    works well with finder for me on 1.1.2 firmware, but, when you finish playing the media clip, it will not return to finder, rather it just waits there even when "done" button is pressed. the only way out is by pushing the home button.

    I love your emphasis on "READ". And yes, I use MobileFinder to try and open an mp3 and avi file. I tried both associating the files and opening it manually, same result. It brings me to the dev page. I've tried with several iPhones (4) and I get the same result.

    chmod 4755 /var/mobile/Library/Preferences/com.googlecode.MobileFinder.plist
    Will this fix the issue where I cannot edit files outside of the mobile directory that haven't had their permissions changed to 777?

    Example, I can't delete a file created in var/root unless I hop in to terminal first and set its permissions to 777. Then I can modify it through mobile finder. I'd like to get around this issue, will the steps above resolve this?

    hi yall

    I have been having issues with a few users

    all I can advise at this point, first you must be using the mobileFinder package from `Ste Packaging`, the one from iClarified source seems to be incompatible. if you have the bad one, uninstall it and get the good'n.

    I'm glad the rest of you enjoy it. I will be adding some requested features coming soon.

    the info at the start of this thread is obsolete...should I start a new one?

  16. #15
    YES when you update the program

    Great JOB thanks, Hope to see options like Choose the file and delete and others in teh update and maybe even not use Mobile finder anymore

    itzwiL i have the same issue as yours and this program is driving me crazy! i tried changing its permission to 577 & 777 and any other possible number yet it keeps opening safari on the dev's annoying web page! any ideas on how to make it work (have 1.1.4 freed with ziphone)

  19. #18
    It's not working on my phone. I installed from the installer, set the permission, did the file associations, reset, restart, everything; but when click on a video file on the Finder, the player launches, but the screen is black, nothing showing. Any help will be greatly appreciated. I have 1.1.4

    Thanks

    Can this be used to view 3gp videos sent from a regular cell phone to my iphone email?

    If not, is there any other way to view Camphone videos emailed to me?
