    Use putty.exe for windows and login using your ipod touch ip address. Next Login as root for the username and alpine for the password.

    When you are at the # prompt type in /bin/chmod -Rf +x /Applications/

    Then reboot the iPod

    the * means include subfolders and files within those folders etc

    just makes the command go deeper

    This will change the permissions of the Applications folder:
    Code:
    /bin/chmod -Rf +x /Applications/
    This will change the permissions of the actual applications and make them executable:
    Code:
    /bin/chmod -R a+x /Applications/*
    Not to mention each have slightly different parameters.

    Sorry i wasnt trying to be rude but im not a unix guy. Just asking to gain some knowledge. If i ran /bin/chmod -Rf +x /Applications/ already is it necessary to run the /bin/chmod -R a+x /Applications/* command?

    Thanks guys!

    I'm experiencing the same problem, I've installed the apps in the correct folders, and run the command /bin/chmod -R a+x /Applications/* in Putty. However once I hit enter after putting in the command it says "glob6: not found" and when I restart my ipod the app icons are on the springboard but when I try and open one the app opens for about 10 seconds then crashes, while it is open I can't do anything if the app.

    I'm open to any suggestions.

    mail has been a pretty difficult port. It's quite a beefy app.

    What about my unjailbroken iphone?

    My iphone used to be jailbroken but not anymore, and none of my apps work. They try to run for about 5 seconds and then crash, leaving me back at the home screen.

    Is it possible to SSH into a non-jailbroken iphone? Or, what else can be done?

    Thanks,
    Mark

    I have just tried at least on off all of these and they did not work. And so I tried to reinstall my official apps through itunes to try and make them work. But after uninstalling them, it says that itunes isn't authorised to install them. I assume this is because the permissions are wrong, so what would I type in putty to change them back so I can install my apps again.

    Edit: Stupidly I never checked the date of this thread and it turns out it is not a fix for my problem at all but I still need to change the permissions back to what they normally are.
