    I'm not bad at hacking, but I'm a poor excuse for a dev........ so the question on my end is "what determines the permissions of a folder?"

    If it is the application I figure you'd have whipped that one by now, so I am guessing it is the firmware (OS).

    I ponder the query of whether or not a program can be written as a zipped folder that extracts with preset permissions.

    ..............and in the likelihood that answer is no, that's why I do better on this side of the table

    When I went through EE all I had to learn was a little C+ and BASIC to program PLC's

    The OS is a Unix OS and has it's own file permissions. I was having problems loading the Themes via Installer into the /var/media partition (for users on 1.1.3 +). i can manually via SSH but Installer was being problematic.

    I need to brush up on some UNIX........

    Inevitably I believe I'll end up developing, but probably not for apple. If I can whip out an Electronics Engineering degree (which I did in 03), I can figure out how to write a program for a phone. I was just always more interested in the hardware side. Now the hardware advances so fast and depends on so many other factors (read: other hardware advancing at a different rate) that unless you do tech work with PLC's or something the likeness it's best you learn the software side and ignore the hardware until you can't ignore it anymore.

    It took me 12 days to program a 30 unit Allen Bradley PLC network for my final exam in college years ago (I'm 31 now) so I figure I should have the iPhone OS learned within 3 months of whenever I decide to start that journey. Being a troubleshooter/tech by trade I think I'll hammer out issues faster than most once I know what the heck I am doing.

    I guess for now you'll just have to depend on apple's SDK to have a solution for integrating the programs into the OS.
