    So I've noticed in the last two days that I cant keep signed in on my phone while surfing a website. For example, yesterday i was trying to get onto my ebay and signed in. then it would load then reloaded right away as if i never signed in. I thought it was just ebay for some reason. Then just now i was surfing facebook, signed in, my news feed came up, i click to check my notifications and it asked me to sign on again, i did. then i went to click one and it asked me to sign in again. its seems like its something to do with the cookies or something. its set to accept cookie from visited, like its always been. I have a jailbroken 1.1.4 phone, I jailbroke it two weeks ago and its been fine up until the last couple days. Anyone know how i can fix it?

    No Idea

    I'm afraid I'm having the same trouble, and have no idea how to sort it out. it basically makes facebook unusable.

    Anyone any ideas?

    yep, i feel the pain too.

    facebook have a nice iphone-formatted page, but its useless if i have to log-in again every time i navigate to a new page.

    oh and i cant post here either :D

    i don't seem to recall having the problem on 112, only since ive gone 114 (btw i'm unlocked + jailbroken)

    just fixed this today :)

    1.1.4 cookie fix.

    (assuming you guys have unlocked your phones... otherwise you cant do anything about it)

    add to installer and download the '1.1.4 cookie fix'

    works great. well, for Facebook at least, and im pretty sure it fixes all the others too

    So after some research on the net I saw I can dl Term VT100 and type in:
    chown mobile /var/mobile/Library/Cookies/
    chown mobile /var/mobile/Library/Cookies/Cookies.plist

    I tried that and get "command not found".
    Whats funny is that I never got a user name or pw prompt.

    Why is this so f'n hard. I just want Safari to remember my cookies. Pls help!!!
