    Angry Cannot remove Lights Off.app

    Installed via SSH not Installer.

    I have tried the below

    To remove files with iPhoneInterface, use the rmdir command. It works for both directories and files. You might have to cd into a folder and delete its contents before deleting the folder itself...I'm not sure about that though.

    To remove files with ssh, you need to install the rm binary from the iphone-binkit, and make it executable with chmod. Then you could simply type rm -r [folder]
    I have tried iPhuc and FUGU.

    FUGU says "denied" I can't change permissions either. Files still transfer fine though.

    IPhoneinterface and iPhuc all says "No such file or directory"

    Any Help??

    ps I did try "Lights_Off.app" "Lights Off.app" "Lights_Off" "Lights Off"

    Ok figured a slight work around...kinda

    My goal was to install the new ver of Lights Off. So I installed 1.0.1 via installer.app which just happened to overwrite the old files. It also obviously added it to the uninstall list as well. So hopefully when I want it gone, installer.app will do it.

    Anyways, does anyone know what is going wrong?? No very comforting. Its kinda like the files / folders can be seen but there not accessible or invisible or protected or something.

    if you installed the binkit you need to change the properties of the rm file to 0755
    its found in the bin folder then you should be able to delete files.

    Yeah the easiest way to rm a app is either with bintools and terminal of to ssh in from a terminal. rm -r appname.app if you just want to replace apps then installer or scp -r "appname.app" to the location on the iphone should work. SSH is much easier to use then IPHUC once you set it up

    Thumbs up Removing an app using ssh works

    exactly: I could not remove VRecord.app using Fugu but the following in Terminal (on the Mac side) did the trick:

    ssh -l root 10.0.1.3 (your IP may be different of course)

    cd /Applications

    rm -r VRecord.app

    BTW The reason I removed VRecord is that VNotes is so much better!!!

    Thanks guys, I did however use rm -r from the ssh via bin after I did chmod +x, I even ls -al to check the permissions.

    I did exactly this

    Thats why I am so baffled. All the commands could not see the Lights Off.app for some reason.

    I wonder if rmdir through ssh and bin would have worked?? Permissions on Lights Off.app were 0755, I also tried deleting the folder contents but it wouldn't let me do that either.

    I wonder if there were issues because "Lights Off" is two words?

    The two words issue is almost certainly the problem. If you type it in with the space, it will think you are talking about two files called "Lights" and "Off.app".

    rm -r "Lights Off.app"

    or

    rm -r Lights\ Off.app

    ought to work via ssh.

    I'm with ya, its the only explanation in why it appears to be not there when I issue commands. I will try your commands above. Thxs
