    Anyone who reads this, and their iPad locks up... Dont despair! This actually happened to me when I tried to do it in iFile. My second attempt at doing this hack, I used iPhone Explorer on my computer, I copied the wifi entry above from edge to end, and just hit return and pasted it below wifi. then just turn that wifi into wildcat and walla. confirmed working and installing packages that required the gsc.wildcat.

    I was really hesitant to try again, but after some people saying it worked I figured what do I have to lose :P
    I am positive when I did it in iFile it LOOKED like everything was right on the money, but it locked me down.
    I figured the copy paste method would remove any errors, and it did!

    So basically I can use WinScp with OPENSSH copy n paste this and it fixes this?

    Actually there's a MUCH simpler way of doing this w/o having too by iFile.Same Risk but easier. All you need is WINSCP and OPENSSH and that's it.I'm probably going to Post a Video of this on You tube just in case people are not sure how too do it.

    Yes, just copy and paste and make sure it looks exactly like above and save and reboot. I did this and it works perfect!
