    My first post on here, so sorry if this is in the incorrect place.

    I have been looking for hours for a way to have 5 or more Icons on the homescreen that when clicked will open up a PDF in safari.

    I have added the file to /var/mobile/Media and then created a webclip through safari.

    I then had to install "file:// for MobileSafari" which allowed local files to be viewed in Safari. (before this I would get an error saying unable to open local files)

    I am now getting the error "Safari Cannot open the page. The error was: The operation couldn't be completed. Operation not permitted."

    When I try browsing to the local file in iLunascape it works fine. However, this app does not allow you to add webclips to the homescreen.

    Does anyone have any possible solutions?
