Thread: Please help with file transfer problem

    Default Please help with file transfer problem
    I tried searching on how to add wallpapers to my iphone and found some great ways however, I am unable to open the following files (which should be directory folders)

    var
    User
    tmp
    etc
    Applications

    I have been able to access them in the past when I had 1.1.4 unlocked.
    has anyone else had this problem? Thanks for any help.

    currently running IPhone 1st gen 8gb 2.0

    how do you mean you have been "unable to open" them? you get an error? they are missing?
    are you sure you didn't just start in "/var/mobile/" or something ... try to get to the root directory (/) ....

    Well when I was modding files through 1.1.4 those mentioned files were appearing as a folder and where it says size "{DIR}" was. Now the files have a page icon and error when opened saying"error downloading file!" I have restored from scratch twice....strange no?


    also I tried making a "var" folder and putting all the paths in the folder then transferring it over through Total Commander. The files transferred over however when finished they did not appear in the iphone. its wierd,

    If it helps I have a contract so I followed the instructions per AT&T contract winpwn 2.0 however, however before that I did create and restore with a custom .ispw that had everything checked.

    I am a noobie to this I havebeen able to figure out alot of things about modding thanks to you all and big thanks to the dev team ....however I cannot figure this out.

    that's pretty strange? What program do you use to access the iPhone? Try with WinSCP when you are on windows or cyberduck when you are on a mac, those two are known to work pretty well.

    Here I attached a screen shot, showing the folders (VAR most importantly)
    appearing as files and not folders.

    alright ... that IS pretty strange. but if your iphone works they ARE definetly folders, so I would still guess it's a problem with the SSH/SFTP program you use. because if there actually were problems with the file system you probably wouldn't be able to boot your iphone.

    PS: date of change on those files rocks

    Oh the date hehe yeah just planning ahead, I fixed it by using winscp and ssh instead of total commander, its wierd cause with 1.1.4 I never had that trouble. I had to buy a wifi router but thats about it. Thanks for all the help guys!
