    I want to know if there is a cydia app for editing plist files DIRECTLY ON iPhone and iPod Touch. I am very well aware this is possible on a computer, but it is more convenient directly on my iPhone. iEdit doesn't work for editing any files (even plain text), and I cannot find anything else.

    I have tried that; It always says "Error. The file /path/to/file.plist could not be written." whenever I push "save". I get the same thing with .strings and .txt, too. Not sure what the problem is.

    Pirated versions of iFile do that...

    That or the plist is in use.

    Honestly, I think it's both...

    At least you're honest.

    I edit plists almost every day with iFile. Get a legal copy and you should be fine.

    I just got the free trial, and I don't get what is "trial" about it. Everything works fine, and I don't see a "Your 10-second trial period has just ended" window like on most apps. It asks me to upgrade, and there is a "donate" button, but that's it.

    It doesn't let you search. That would've been very helpful to me at times.

    iFile works to edit .plis file, if you are getting a error is due to some other reason.
