    Default [1.1.3] known issue on Time Zone?

    I upgraded to 1.1.3 sucessfully using Dev Team method. Everything works fine except there is a issue with Time Zone. I changed the time zone in Settings > General > Date & Time > Time Zone to Hong Kong, but when I looked under the World Clock, the time seems to stay at PST (ie. Los Angeles shows up the same as the time I set for the phone while Hong Kong time is calculated based on Los Angeles' time. Anyone else experiencing the same?

    I found this from apple support which advice I restore in itune to fix the problem. I guess that's not an option for jailbreak phone, am I correct? Any suggestion on how to fix this?

    Pardon me if this question sounds stupid, but I'm still new to all this...

    How do you exactly change that to chmod 777 /var/db/timezone?

    Would anyone care to explain how to do it (step by step, if possible) in lay terms?

    Many thanks in advance

    SSH in, type that command exactly as shown. The problem is that the directory /var/db/timezone isn't writable by the mobile user, and this is where the chosen timezone info is stored. That command makes it writable by any user. It's been discussed here before; OP should learn to search before starting threads :p
