  • GUIDE: Accessing iPhone Straight from Finder (AFP)
    For those of you who weren't sure how to use AFP, or what it was, we've got a new guide up. For OS X users this pretty much negates the need for any 3rd party apps while accessing your iPhone.

      Note that if you mount the iphone via AFP the finder leaves a .DS_Store file in every folder you've browsed. At 24Kb a pop, having browsed several directories you end up clogging your flash drive, especially the application partition which is so dire on space.

      Use mobile terminal on your iPhone, and type: passwd

      If you don't have the command already on your iPhone, I think you can get it from Erica's Utilities or More BSD.

      Sorry but I laughed when I read this. AFP stands for APPLE file protocol, of course there is no Windows version of an APPLE protocol.

      i followed your guide to accessing my iphone through finder, and successfully connected once. i tried to reconnect again and now it wont work. instead of the basic pop-up asking for username and pass, it says registered user or guest. i've tried a million times to put my name and pass in and it tells me its invalid. i've tried goin to ultcl and shutting down the server, then starting it back up to connect, but still..nothing. can someone please help? by the way im running 1.1.4 - thanks to anyone who can help!
