Set Permissions Init Script For Vibrant
Forgetting about setting proper permissions when pushing a custom framework can lead to some nasty problems on your Android phone as discovered by XDA forum member birgertime.
To avoid this in future, the XDA member has written a script to fix this in a flashable zip. Upon every boot, the script will scan /system/app, /system/framework and /data/app and set the proper permissions for all the files in those locations.
