    just use bossprefs to edit them.

    or do it via winscp, click on the link on the sig about customize, you should be able to figure out the terminal commands to set the permissions correctly.

    The problem is you are running the finder programs as user mobile, without enough privileges to change permissions.

    You can SUID the programs to run as root and then change permissions with them.

    I use MobileTerminal to change permissions on MobileFinder to start with.
