    hey guys I'm having trouble with 1.1.4 and its cookies. On sites like facebook and others it will not remember the info. Ive tried installing iremember cookie fix thru installer but it gives me a script error. Could some tell me how I can solve this or where I can get that app from another resource. Thnx :)

    Your cookies dir may be hosed. Change the /var/mobile/Library/Cookies dir to /var/mobile/Library/Cookies.orig to keep it safe. Quit Safari, or better yet restart the Touch. Log into a site and then quit again. It should remember it . If you SSH into your Touch again, there should be a new /var/mobile/Library/Cookies dir that Safari has created.

    If safari is running under the mobile user account (check with ps aux) just do a
    chown -R mobile:wheel /var/mobile/Library/Cookies
    and optionally chmod -R 770 /var/mobile/Library/Cookies
