    This happened to me as well; it was very frustrating.
    I found this at the modmyi website:


    Known Issues
    Release 1.5.0-1
    ◦Issue that if a folder iFile starts with did not exist, iFile shows the spinning wheel forever.
    ◦Crash when transferring a file from iFile to iFile (sender crashes).
    ◦When a user chooses select all, iFile does not enable the toolbar buttons.
    ◦Crash when tapping on folder in search results of hierarchical search.
    ◦Opening files in iFile via URL ifile:///<path> does not work anymore. This is a problem in context with Attachment Saver and Safari Download Manager.
    ◦Crash when choosing a viewer for a file without known type for 4th time.

    For some reason my "/var/mobile/documents folder was gone.
    I recreated it through ssh, and voila...everything worked again.

    Hope this works for you.

    Exactly.

    Through ssh I went to /var/mobile; and once there I created an empty "Documents" folder.
    Everything worked perfectly after that.
