    But that did not work. Do I need to do anything else after the chmod is done? I was not able to find the repo for openssh to perform the chmoed operation on the phone. thats the reason I used the pc suıte method

    any help will be much appriciated
    You cannot apply permissions in one system and then transfer the file to another system and have those permissions stick. You need to apply the permissions on the iPhone itself. You need to SSH into the iPhone, and type: chmod 4755 /Applications/MobileSafari.app/MobileSafari

    What this does is tells Safari to run under root, giving it all the permissions necessary to write cookies, cache and history.

    If I need to do it on the phone can u tell the repo for openSSH? i did a search for it and cannot find it. I assume after I install openSSH, ı will be able to use Winscp to do this.

    Is there step by step guıde to ssh to your phone. The results to my searches were not that helpful

    thanks much

    OpenSSH is carried by Ste Packaging, and should be found in the System category. If you can't find it in your Install list, try your un-install list, maybe you already have it!

    also you can use vterm on the phone to do the command if you somehow can't do ssh

    Thanks for every1's replies. I think a combination of all or your advice solved the problem.

    SinceI could not ssh remotely, I installed Vterm and I changed the owner of the var/mobile/Library/cookies folder from root to mobile. This seemed to have finally worked.

    Fingers crossed
    I hope it stays that way

    thanks again

    I'm lost. I installed SSH and WinSCP. I see the directories discussed. But how do I change the permissions? They are greyed out and I have no idea what to do. I am SUCH a newbie when it comes to things like this. If there is a place on these forums where this is covered please point me there. Don't want to waste anyone's time!!

    In SBSettings, run Fix User Dir Permissions

    All done with a click of a button without SSH
