    In this Thread I am showing you how to not only change the intervals of the when the email/rss feeds are fetched, but I am also showing you how to make them a choice FOR GOOD in your settings menu, instead of having to worry about it changing back to "Manually"

    here it goes.


    SSH into this folder

    /System/Library/PreferenceBundles/ScheduleSettings.bundle/ScheduleSettings.plist

    ....


    I opened the file with Plist Editor for Windows (found here)
    http://www.topshareware.com/download...2fplistset.exe

    now scroll to the part where you see

    " <dict>
    <key>cell</key>
    <string>PSGroupCell</string>
    <key>height</key>
    <real>12</real>
    <key>id</key>
    <string>radioGroup</string>
    </dict>"

    and after that you can put in this or any variation of it...

    <dict>
    <key>cell</key>
    <string>PSListItemCell</string>
    <key>interval</key>
    <integer>300</integer>
    <key>label</key>
    <string>Every 5 Minutes</string>
    <key>set</key>
    <string>setPollInterval:specifier:</string>
    </dict>



    in the part where it is
    <integer>300</integer>

    you can change this to your time setting (every 60 is a minute)

    and at this
    <string>Every 5 Minutes</string>

    you can change the way it is displayed in the settings menu.

    you can add as many of these as you would like.

    I hope this is a good Thread as it is my first.

    let me know what you all think.

    To make it easier: I think most of the "Extended Preferences"-like packages add this setting.
    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).
