  • 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.

      well cool
      got it to work
      took a couple of connection attempts, but got in!
      now, how do i add/change wallpapers and stuff from there?
      i have all my custom icons etc. in a folder, i want to install the on phone
      i could not manage to do so with customize? it just crashes when i click on the alternate logos.
      should be easier from here with the direct connect
      but what is it listed under?
      prefs, framework,library,private/library? cant find it
      school me please

      thank you

      What? Look at the guide, you don't go to the site to download the source, you add it from Installer. That URL IS the source, you add it in the Installer app, NOT plug it into Safari.

      This thread is simply about this mod. For instructions or tips/hints about the iPhone file system, please start a new thread in the appropriate forum.

      This would be a nice addition to Services.app as well.

      Updated the guide a little bit to clarify that point.

      Either the afpd service is not started (install UIctl from Installer to check), or you are putting in the wrong IP address.

      Why do people keep asking this? Clearly this states this is for Macs. There are other options for Windows, and I'm sure something similar will be out soon enough. Must have patience, Danielson....

      What options other than SSH? I dont have access to wifi. Is there something I can use that I can just hook up to the computer via USB?
