    Safari "Open in..." command stopped working

    Hi all,

    I used to be able to click on a torrent file on btjunkie or similar and Safari would take me to a screen with an icon and two buttons: "Open in..." and "Open in FileBrowser". After a while, clicking on the latter would freeze the iPad, and clicking on the generic button would do nothing (the button would darken and register that I had touched it, but no amount of pressing would get it to do anything).

    I'm running jail broken 4.2.1 (and the problem doesn't go away if I go back to non-jailbroken), and I've tried clearing the cache, etc.

    Any thoughts? Or alternatives? I really miss being able to download files onto my computer from my iPad...

    Thanks in advance!

    Cheers,
    Jer

    The big thing I see is this "after a while" part of your post. So - it works for a time, then it stops?

    You didn't mention if you ever tried this, but, the first thing I'd recommend when it does that is to do a respring. Sometimes, things just get hung up and you need to do that (or even a reboot). I've found that most of my [few and far between] problems are often solved by a respring/reboot.

    That's all I've got ... good luck.
