    Default problems (and solutions) after pwning
    so i noticed 2 things.

    1st off my phone didn't sleep, even if the screen was locked. it also would not auto-lock unless it was plugged in to my computer.

    you can check to see if this is happening by a simple look at your usage.. (mine was at 8 hours and 51 minutes when i woke up after it was fully charged the night before)

    i thought it may be the alarm, so i ran a test and nope.

    the other problem was that mail crashed every time i opened it. it would update and download the messages, but by the time it was complete it crashed.

    simple solve.

    ssh into your phone through terminal.

    ssh root@your ip address, put in your password, then

    chmod 777 /var/mobile/Library/Mail
    chown mobile /var/mobile/Library/Cookies/
    chown mobile/var/mobile/Library/Cookies/Cookies.plist

    on the cookies plist i got an error, but low and behold it fixed both problems.

    i was expecting the mail problem to be resolved but it also fixed the sleep problem!

    hopefully this helps someone else out there.

    another solution that worked for me (for the mail issue) was to install BossPreffs and use it to repair permissions..
