    ifile + cck sd card adapter question

    Thanks for your replies. I simply was not expecting that the file would be copied to an app's sandbox when opened from an external source. I assume that the same behavior would occur using ifile with a USB thumb drive or external hard drive. I wonder if it might be possible someday for ifile to...

    Cydia AppList 1.4.1 update

    I see this update from Cydia today. The description says: Allows developers to query the list of installed apps and provide a preferences pane based on that information. I am unsure exactly what this is and if I should update it. Please clue me in if you know.

    Ipad 2 JB.. Working/non working cydia apps

    I want to install winterboard on my ipad 2 but only see Winterboard 0.9.3211-1 on Cydia which indicates that it is for iPhone and iPod touch. It does not indicate it is iPad compatible. Is there another version for iPad or is this the right one?

    Can't play or copy network videos with Buzz Player HD

    No matter what share settings I use, Buzz is not able to play or copy files via smb on my domain member computer or a non domain computer for that matter while Oplayer has no problem accessing the files.

    Can't play or copy network videos with Buzz Player HD

    Hi Donka, I am using the same credentials in buzz player smb that work fine in Oplayer smb for the same windows share.

    Can't play or copy network videos with Buzz Player HD

    BTW, I just tested Oplayer and it had no problem copying videos via smb from the same shared folder using the same credentials I configured for Buzz Player. However, it does not have the ability to play the files without copying them first like Buzz Player is "supposed" to be able to do.

    How to tell if Ipad 2 is fully charged?

    Thanks for all of your responses. I do indeed have the % of charge option enabled. I was pretty certain there was no other way to tell if the Ipad is fully charged without turning on the screen but thought I would ask in case I was missing something.

    How to tell if Ipad 2 is fully charged?

    There is no charge status LED that I can find that changes from red to green for example. Is there a way to tell if the Ipad 2 wifi is fully charged without having to wake it up (I have the smart cover) to see the battery icon percentage?
