    i came here looking for advice on how to further use the chmod function, but i have had experience with exactly what you are trying to do. when you were told to write chmod 755 /var/root/Media/ROMs/GBA/* that is exactly what you write. the * tells terminal that you want to apply the chmod 755 to all the contents of the specified folder. so no need to write the names of the roms individually.
    if you have typed it write and in correct case(takes me at least five goes cos backspace acts as spacebar on my terminal) then terminal will just drop to next line, anything else is not good.

    you will need to run the command every time you install roms or until someone fixes the issue. it
    workes for me
    i recomend the sega packs for gba, always prefered sega games myself, and they run well
    good luck

    Why make life harder, just use MobileFinder to change permissions.

    in 1.1.3 some files will not run unless you change the permissions.
    i installed mobilefinder, its a sweet app, but i see no way of changing the permissions, please advise as an app like this would make life a lot easier
