Thread: MobileFinder Permissions 1.1.3 DevTeam

  1. #1
    Default MobileFinder Permissions 1.1.3 DevTeam
    MobileFinder has access to the root directory, but does not have permission to delete, move files, etc... Does anyone know what I can do far Finder to have read/write access to the root directory?

    Has no one else encountered this problem? Anyhelp is greatly appreciated.

    This fixed it for me on 114:

    From the googlecode site:

    It has come to my attention that file operations in the system portion of the filesystem don't work on 1.1.3 and later due to access restrictions (I use 1.1.2, so I'm a bit behind). I will attempt to address this in MobileFinder 1.9. Until then, issuing the following commands in terminal or via an ssh client fixes the problem:

    chmod 4755 /Applications/
    chmod 4755 /bin/cat /bin/chmod /usr/bin/chown /bin/cp /bin/ls
    chmod 4755 /bin/mkdir /bin/mv /bin/rm /bin/rmdir /bin/unlink

    The only error I got was with the last command -
    chmod: cannot access `/bin/unlink': No such file or directory

    so I just ran the command again wihout the "/bin/unlink" part.

    I also added the following to get the app to save its prefs properly:

    chmod 4755 /mobile/Library/Preferences/com.googlecode.MobileFinder.plist

    Thank you jrentzke

    "chmod 4755 /mobile/Library/Preferences/com.googlecode.MobileFinder.plist"

    add "/var" in the front of this directory.

    chmod 4755 /var/mobile/Library/Preferences/com.googlecode.MobileFinder.plist
