Good iFile tip
You may already know this, but enable "Use Trash" in iFile settings to save yourself the trouble of accidentally deleting something and having to restore to get it back.
I deleted WeeAppPlugins, thinking it was a remnant of a deleted WeeKillBackground app, BUT IT WAS NOT.. My weather, stocks, etc. disappeared from my notification center and notification settings.
I was about ready to do yet another restore. But then I checked in var/mobile/Library/iFile/Trash and presto! Just copy the trashed files and paste them back where they belong.
Hope this helps (and wasn't too obvious)

It's great if you are deleting potentially important files, performing a Respring and noticing problems.
But obviously of you are not experiencing problems and want to save space, delete the trash contents every once in a while.

On the subject of iFile: I want to be able to move pics from albums that I've synced from iTunes to the
camera roll. Reason being is because I'd rather create those albums on the phone itself so that whenever
I restore those pics and albums will be there and I won't have to rely on syncing certain albums anymore.
What folder am I looking for? I'm trying to find the folders of the albums that I've synced through iTunes so
I can move them into the camera roll.

Re: Good iFile tip
This was helpful, thanks, I rarely sync albums from iTunes, so when I was asked the location, this thread helped. So I'll add a bit to it as a thanks.
The reason copy/pasting does not work to show in your camera roll is data base writing only done by iTunes. There is a simple way around this though. In ifile, when clicking the arrow (file attributes) to the right of the file you want to add to camera roll, in this menu, there is an ifile option at the very bottom of the attributes page which will save "save to camera roll". This is the only way to manually add to camera roll outside of iTunes.
So for example, I want to record a vid using DisplayRecorder, then tweet it,but I can't access this saved file with my twitter client. So I can use this method to add to camera roll then it's accessible to any of your apps
Hope this helped.

Re: Good iFile tip
I can not find I trash and I went to var/mobile/library/ifile and yet no "trash" I deleted a file so that when I dock my phone to any docking station I can not get sound out of the docking station speaker. Just through the phone. Please help. Thank you.
