    The online converter I used to use isn't working anymore... I used this: Convert Apple Property list from binary to text XML

    Does anyone know any other way to make my .plists readable and editable? (im on windows.)

    install erica's utilities from cydia. after that you can just execute
    plutil -c xml1 filename.plist
    directly on your iphone (either via SSH or using mobile terminal) and there you go.

    If you have Perl and understand the command line (a little) you can also use my plutil app:

    if you mean my method using plutil, it just converts the existing file so you can open, read and alter it afterwards. easiest method available as far as I know.

    Thank you NetMage! The online converter has been sketchy with downtime, with this I could make my own online converter!

    Hi all,

    I coded this web based app to convert the .plist and .strings to xml.

    Try it:

    well, not really as far as I know ... like I said: just install erica's utilities and execute
    plutil -c xml1 file.plist
    on your iphone, that'll do the job, is very quick and anyone can do it.

    regards

    All I am finding is online or mac based solutions, and I could use the online ones but I am looking for a batch converter. Anyone got any ideas for a windows app?

    See my signature.
    Windows tool to edit .plist, .strings and .nib files: pledit.
    Or use a website that will convert the binary form to a readable format.
    On iPhone you can convert those files in a terminal with plutil (installed with Erica Utilities from Cydia), or edit them with iFile (from Cydia).
