    As far as I know, only SSH'ing can change permissions OR install on your iPhone. You can set the permissions with it.

    thanks - but mobilefinder don't change permissions for folders , only for files
    i thought that will but it also going only for files

    still looking for a win app that can do the trick directly from PC (like winscp)

    You should probably install BSD Subsystem, Terminal or Term-vt100, and use the command line.

    cd to the parent directory, and then use chmod to set the permissions.

    Having said that, MobileFinder is able to change folder permissions on my iPhone. Do you have the latest version? Under Misc|About, mine says v1.8.0

    The answer is simple - there isn't one.

    The afc2 service used by USB programs to access the filesystem does not have any API support for permission changing, as far as has been figured out already.

    Set the wireless adapter on your pc to ad hoc mode and log your phone onto it winscp and ssh should do ya then?
    Rules one and two ALWAYS in effect.
