    Default How to repair/fixed/recover mail.app crashes for unlocked iphone 2.0.2
    if you open up the mail.app on the iphone and get a blank screen which reverts to the desktop about 20 seconds later

    assuming you have installer.app - update it
    install:
    openbsd
    community sources (if not already)
    openssh

    power down the iphone completely

    download putty (windows) and start the iphone
    connect the usb lead to your pc & iphone
    connect to your wifi and note your ip address
    open up putty and put the ip address in, click on open


    you’ll have to wait around 30 seconds for the key to be generated, when it is and the certifcate prompt comes up say yes
    login as: root


    type in the password: its either dottie or alpine depending on which version of iphone you have


    once you’re logged in (you’ll see the # prompt) type passwd and change it to “whatever you want your new
    password to be”


    retype your new password


    type:

    chown -R mobile:mobile /private/var/mobile


    press return

    turn off & power down and back up and you should be sorted

    Actually you can download boss prefs and pick "fix permission dir".
