Reload pocket hosts - it should look something like the attached thumbnail. If it does, try a soft reset. However, if it's still refusing point blank, it's highly possible you're going via a proxy, and that is handling the DNS lookups. To bypass that will require a hack to the HTC plugin itself. I can set it up server side for it (which was going to be my initial approach!), but it'll need an appropriate hostname hacking into the binary. I'll see what I can do on that score tomorrow, both on the home plugin front and the server-side setup.

I suggest using Total Commander - you can remove the read-only flag from there, and even edit it inside it. Works beautifully.

I use the Total Com, too. But when I open the file the Internet Explorer opens and displays the xml file. I tried to remove the flag but he didnt adopt it. So I looked at the attributes again and nothing has changed.

I'm assuming that's after you've gone to the file properties. You should be able to unclick "Read-only" and "System" on it.

There's quite a bit of information on doing this scattered around the forums. Is it cooked into your ROM? (It'll have a tickbox by the "In ROM" box if that's the case.) But you want to clear the Read Only and System attributes from the file properties if you can, THEN edit it.

More information on this thread.

I did this but when I open the properties again the attributes for "Read-only" and "System" are still on.

There's your problem. I suggest copying it somewhere else on the device, editing it, and copying it back, but it may have issues doing it.

If you can't copy it back, apparently Resco Explorer is able to do it.
