    Ultimately afp = cyberduck = ssh in terminal
    i'd say it goes by the ease of use.

    off topic: still waiting for voice dialling and safari alternative
    safari alternative? now you're just getting greedy

    I take it that the Services.app has to be updated to have the ability to turn off AFP?

    Quoting Erica Sadun : [Hopefully soon, we'll see not only an Installer.app version but one with a controllable launch daemon that will let you enable and disable the service as desired.]

    I guess I'll wait for it ...

    ok first of all people, this is AFP (Apple Filling Protocol) meaning it utilizes a protocol that is Mac specific. now if you could incorporate this protocol on a M$ system more power to you. but that would be the only way this method of mounting the iphone would allow you to use this with a Windows piece of **** computer.

    oh and btw i just did this on my iPhone and it worked beautifully. so now i can mount it to my Finder window and it just works. GO APPLE! Think Different!

    btw file transfer seems to be a bit quicker not sure, but it seems to be a bit quicker using AFP instead of ssh

    Default AFP install went wrong
    This is bugging me. Can anybody help please?

    I created a folder on the Mac called opt. In that iphone. In that afp with the unstuffed files.

    In terminal on the iPhone I ran the line of text in terminal to start the startserver.sh with the ampersand.

    It returned a code [1] 82 and although the iPhone is still doing all that it normally does, there is no afp service.

    When I now try and access the iPhone via Fugu it returns this error.

    @ Warning: Remote host identification has changed! @

    Can anybody help me on this one please?

    Regards, Richard

    i cant even fine opt/iphone/

    You have to create a folder called opt then within that a folder called iphone and then put the unstuffed afp folder inside that as far as I can work out.

    If remote host identification has changed, you should just be able to hit ok or yes and move forward...

    Alas not. The only way I can now access the iPhone from the MBP is via Cyberduck. It reports that the Remote Host has changed.

    Do you know if the permissions need changing on the files that are copied to the iPhone? I presume that I now need to stop this before chucking the folder off the iPhone?

    Any help appreciated please.

    Regards, Richard

    /Users//.ssh/known_hosts.

    Please edit that file by hand and remove the line containing your phone's IP address.

    wow, I finally get to help some poor soul on how to do some of this stuff. I finally get to give back.
    some of this stuff you will have to know or find elsewhere, but it is the iphone modding basics...

    get the afp tar on your computer. unarchive the tar file. make a folder structure opt/iphone/afp/the_files_unarchived
    upload this folder structure to the root of your phone via fugu or cyberduck. this is where you see _MACOSX, Applications, bin, and other folders. once the folders and files are there launch terminal on your iphone (Term-vt100) found in installer.app /system (i believe). in terminal enter " bash /opt/iphone/afp/startserver.sh & " without the quotes. the terminal will not respond, but an error response means it didn't work

    That's better. A decent explanation on how to do it for those of us who can't speak complete geek.)

    Just as a small addition. You also need to make sure that permissions on the file you load on the iPhone are 0755.

    Somebody was looking to access the iPhone via a PC. I wonder if one of these products would work?

    http://www.acutesystems.com/scrtm.htm
    http://www.mediafour.com/products/macdrive/

    /Users//.ssh/known_hosts.

    Please edit that file by hand and remove the line containing your phone's IP address.


    Thanks for that. I can access the iPhone now but the MacBookPro still can't access the iPhone as a drive. I guess I'll have to wait until a real installer arrives.

    This is absolutely great!!! I downloaded the file directly into my iPhone from the Frenchiphone repository via installer, and 20 seconds later I had my iPhone icon on my desktop!!!! This is way cool! Kudos and proficiats to CORE for this!!!



    polly, do you think that we will see this packaged and on installer very soon ? for those of us who are having a tough time with it manually?
    AND..., as I stated above, the file IS available on the frenchiphone .com repository!

    It makes the AFP set up completely transparent, all you have to do is manually launch the daemon with UIctl .

    What's the difference between iPhone Root Filesystem and Root's Home ?

    That's the choice I get when connect. Thanks.

    Also, why does it not see sub directories in Applications folder but seeing as a single APP file ? I want to backup my Application files but if it doesn't see subdirectories in Applications folder, it sucks.

    Last question; If you kill the AFP process with sysinfo, it stops it but does it run again after reboot ?

    thanks.
