I need to modify the uEnv.txt file for screen resolution, but have no idea where the file is.

I am currently running the  Cubieez, a Debian 7.1 image.

I am a completely noob so a little bit help pls :)

I'm not familiar with the image you are using (I'm using a Debian image I built myself), but usually uEnv.txt resides in the first partition (which is the boot partition) of the SD card. Normally, this partition is not mounted. This is probably reason why you can't find your file.
You should be able to mount it using this command (an the cubieboard):
mount /dev/mmcblk0p1 /mnt/

Now the file should be accessible as "/mnt/uEnv.txt".
(Can't test this right now, since I'm at work.)

Alternatively, you can connect the microSD card using a card reader to a PC running Linux (windows should also work). The partitions on the card should be automatically mounted and you should have access to the file.

Cheers,
Christian
