I've installed hachu's plugin that enables Mobile Safari to download files, but I wish to continue to open (with a single click) pdf files on Mobile Safari. Is it possible to modify Info.plist so that Safari will open pdf files once again? I tried to uninstall this plugin, but after uninstalling it, everytime I try to open a pdf file, Mobile Safari closes.

I had already discovered the way to see where the files were. Anyway, thanks Leandro Now, how do I open them? What program should I use to actually see the docs?

Fellows, to be able to browse the var directory, you must to enable Mobile FInder to access the System Files. Go to Settings: System File Access and turn it to ON. Hope it helps. Cheers from Brasil
