    How about if this symlink hack is used in conjunction with iCommander? You can use iCommander to change permissions so MobileFinder can modify them...

    why the heck do you type like that ? do you think its cool or something ? :/

    back on topic, this trick can be used with the app Files too.

    the suid or root:wheel or whatever to make this run as root would be nice, but i dont know how to do that

    i was in a hurry
    w.e anyways if u wanna edit the contents of a folder all u gotta do is set it to 777. (either with terminal or icommander) . So far its the only work around. So no body in the whole forum knows the correct command to use... i dont think so.. come on ppl :hack:

    Location of the app is not the point of the permission for root write access.
    I have deplaced my MobileFinder app to /Applications and the result is the same.
    Not possible to modify root files. Pretty much useless at this stage except to see the files....
    If the app is deplaced in /Applications, it should be a way to give it all right!
    Someone have an idea how ??

    You should run something like this

    Code:
    chown -R root /Applications/Installer
    if you feel you want to change the group too, then do this


    Code:
    chown -R root:wheel /Applications/Installer
    It's kind of silly to put it into the wheel group, but if you want go ahead.
    I would suggest

    Code:
    chown -R root:admin /Applications/Installer
    be the command you run.
    i played with those commands (obviusly not applied to installer ) and i couldnt get any result
