    Im untethered with GP....question, hope this doesnt sound stupid. I D/L a theme on cydia, but when I open it, it works expect for the wallpaper. It says the following: (Note Im on 4.2.1)


    IOS4.1-Navigate on your phone or via SSH to /var/mobile/libary/caches and delete the file ".com.apple.Springboard.folderSwitcherLinen"


    IOS4.2-Navicage to the same directory as above and there are 4 files with the ".com.apple.springboard.folderSwitcherLinen" name that will all need to be deleted. After you have deleted these files, just respring your device.

    QUESTION: How do I get to this directory?


    THANKS!!!

    f4 little help please...i saw a video and explained that you need Open SSH and BossPrefs, which I d/l, just want to make sure this sounds about right, before I proceeded.

    OpenSSH is fine. Don't know why you would need boss prefs???
    With OpenSSH installed you can access your iPad file system from any one of a number of programs from your desktop.

    Personally, I would just use iFile. By far the best solution for file management "on device". Yes it costs money, but well worth the investment.

    Just be careful. You are about to start messing with your filesystem... Make sure you understand what you are doing and follow instructions to the letter.
