You can exit the NES app by holding down the Menu key till the Menu appears.

Also, if rm isn't on your iPhone you can't delete using WinSCP.

Install Mobile Finder. Then delete NES from there.

what is rm? I can hey files on to my iPhone perfectly fine but not off
It's the "remove" (delete) utility. WinSCP uses it to delete files. You can use it from a command line too.

You can get it as part of the iPhone binket:
http://iPhone.natetrue.com/iphone-binkit-0.06.tar.gz

Just place a copy of rm in your /bin folder and you will be fine. You probably should install a few other utilities as well, such as mkdir (or all of them, if you want).

Might as well throw a copy of screenshot in there too. Then you can use WinSCP to take easy screen shots (right click screenshot in WinSCP, choose Custom Commands, and then Execute--screenshot PNG will be in /var/tmp).

If you have any problems check permissions (0755).

Can you delete any file with WinSCP? Did you set the permissions of the files copied to \bin to 0755?

An easy test is to copy a simple text file to the iPhone with WinSCP and then immediately try to delete it. Without rm it shouldn't let you. With it, you can delete it.

Command 'rm -f -r "New Text Document.txt"'
failed with return code 126 and error message
-sh: line 78: /bin/rm: Permission denied.

I had this same problem for a while and finally figured it out!


I had 'rm' and 'rmdir' in the '/bin/' folder, but neither file was set to be an "executable". In WinSCP, I had to navigate to these two files, right-click, choose "Properties", and then change their permissions to:
Octal: 0755​
Earlier, I thought that I was supposed to change the permissions on the files and folders I was trying to delete. Doh!

thanks for that but I just went to the root and selected everything and changed permission on everything to 0755 it still didn't work so I don't know what else to do

i use the program fugu.. you cant delete the folder until its contents are deleted. so enter the folder delete all the contents within the folder then navigate back to the folder. from there you can delete the actual folder which isn't really necessary. next time you restart your iPhone it should be deleted from your iPhone...

I can't delete with WinSCP either and the reason is because I can't unzip natetrue's binkit... I'm using the evaluation version of winzip so maybe that's the problem? Could someone send me just the rm file that I need out of the binkit zip file?
