  • 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.

      For installation and instructions in English you can also install AFP from Shai's Apps (http://ride4.org/shai.xml)

      Is there any way to change the name from localhost to iPhone? So that it shows up in the leopard sidebar as:
      \/ Shared
      [] iPhone

      Is there a Window version of AFP app available?

      I have made an AppleScript that will mount your iPhone when run.

      My iPhone has 10.0.1.2 as its IP, if yours is different, open the app in Script Editor.

      Hope this is useful to you!

      Hi I just installed it and it works like a Charm!!! Great Work!! Does anyone know if theres a way to turn it off, like SSH in the service app? I don't want anyone to be able to get in to my phone!!! If theres a way to turn it on only the times I used it, and then back off again(like the service app) It would be perfect!!!

      I can confirm when I installed, it was not active. I had to use UIctl to activate the daemon.

      yeah, I have to agree thats the easiest way to install
      just install AFP through my installer source, restart your phone. Use the finder or applescript method above to connect to the phone and BAM. I only had to do this once, now everytime I walk within range of my home wifi the phone comes up automatically.

      I have NOT noticed any power drain. From my understanding if AFP isnt transfering a file there is no power use or minimal.

      WhenI installed the AFP, I got the idea to put the alias I made for the iPhone Root Drive in the dock. Therefore I changed the icon through Info and put an iPhone icon in. I copied the alias that I renamed to  iPhone to my root disk and from there I dragged it into my dock. Did the same with my TV...

      When I look at the folders of my iPhone in Finder I see the standard var and media folders but I DON'T see all the files/folders that I do in Cyberduck (sym folders and assorted other files). Is there some hidden files switch I don't have on or something I missed?

      Anyone else experiencing really slow folder opening? I was opening a apricular folder and it took about a minute. I can deal with it as long as thats normal. I was using SFTP but after the update to 1.1.2 I cant get it to work anymore.

      That is not normal, no. Make sure your iPhone isn't changing IPs during..

      I've successfully installed it and it works fine.

      Now what we need is an option in Service to shut it down, otherwise it can be used to hack your iPhone anytime and anywhere you have a wi-fi on.

      Unless you changed the ssh password or you did shutdown it with Ulcl

      I did notice one thing wrong... it's daemon. The French don't know how to spell; especially a British word.
