Thread: Cannot putfile. Why??
07-27-2007, 09:30 PM #1Cannot putfile. Why??
Now that iActivate runs on PPC mac's, I'm working on my G4 to unlock and add ringtones to my iPhone. I sucessfully ran iActivate and jailbreak was fantastic. My phone is now writeable. I have iPhoneinterface running in my terminal and I was able to create the ringtones folder.
Now I have that test CTU.mp3 file and when i type in putfile CTU.mp3 I get the following error: Problem with AFCFileRefOpen: 7.
Now I am running all files from phonedmg folder in my home directory and I have the CTU.mp3 file in that folder as well. I searched all around for this error but I have no clue what is happening. Can anyone here shed some light on this?

hmm, try downloading iphone interface and the dlls. Something might have gotten corrupt. I was getting that error at one time and just re-downloaded the files. Good luck. Sorry if I wasn't any help.

wow. um have you restored, and then jailbreaked it again?

I've restored my iPhone but now.... I can't jailbreak it!! Ugh. iActivate runs and says my jailbreak ran sucessfully but the status of the phone doesn't show as jailbroken. I only get an option to jailbreak it again. I have no clue what is going on here. For simple ringtones, this process is getting frustrating.

ok redownload jailbreak and iphoneinterface and anything else ur using. Run Jailbreak and try again. If that works then use iphoneinterface but try typing out "putfile /var/root/Library/Ringtones/CTU.mp3". That might do it.

Thanks for the info.
***UPDATE: Nope. Doesn't work. Same error
***UPDATE 2: I got Jailbreak to work by removing it's .plist file from my Library. While I can break the phone again, I still get the same write error when trying to copy the file. FYI, I get the same error when trying to copy ANY file to the phone, not just the mp3.
