    Post [1.1.4 (1.1.2 OTB)][Filesystem] Trouble deleting file

    My device is running 1.1.4 (was 1.1.2 OTB, got it a couple of days ago, strangely enough) with 4.6BL (was 3.9 OTB I think) and it's jailbroken & unlocked with PwnageTool.

    I have been using OpenSSH and Fugu for OS X (10.5.2) to transfer files. I renamed an application (in /Applications) to Applicationname.app.old and my problem is that I can't delete it.

    I have tried setting the permissions to 777 to see if that would let me delete it, I've tried deleting it using Fugu (gives the error "Failed to delete file"). I've also tried deleting it using MobileFinder but nothing happens when I try.

    Does anyone know why I can't delete this file? Or how I can delete it?

    Edit: tried changing the topic title to include firmware version but it seems it wouldn't let me?

    are you logged in as root? Perhaps the immutable bit is set

    Default

    you can also check this for Mac OSX - on iPhone there is a light version of OSX running...

    but I do still have no solution for you. This is interesting... I will have an eye on it
    edit: found the equivalent to linux chattr command - in OSX it is chflags [-R [-H | -L | -P]] flags file...
    but don't try this at home - you do not need it

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- :hack:

    oh, I have one idea: did you try to delete recursively? you have to because this is not a file but a folder...

    in fugu do
    rm -fr Application.app.old

    is your friend
