Protocol set to SFTP, not FTP? Port selected as 22, not 21?

i follow the steps, and up to drag the files lockdownd & unlock to iphone, reboot, then the phone was freezed, and i cannot do anythings.
Then i restore the iphone via itune, and after restore, the phone was still freezed, you cannot even move the slidebar at the bottom, nor turn off the iphone.
Anyone know what should i do ? i am stressed ..... as I don't know how to fix it and replace the phone.

"If you are using iTunes 7.4.1 and have a more recent iPhone you may get a message "Bootstrap failed, see Console log!" when trying to install AppTapp. You can get around this by removing iTunes 7.4.1 and its plist (use AppDelete to do this) and installing 7.4 from a DMG"
Firstly, thanks for the great posts.,,,, I have itunes version 7.42 installed, do I need to fall back to 7.4 to carry out this whole process....just checking.

I have same problem.

I need delete INSTALLER and later install again .... ?

Ok well i've gotten to the end of part 3 almost
i've installed community services
then installed BSD Subsystem
but when I go to install OpenSSH I don't see it in the list anywhere, I've checked 4 times tried to refresh, but it never finishes refreshing.
any ideas --- thanks

Hi, same for me. I am doing my second phone and with first one AppTapp showed all files needed plus many more.
Now I have list of packages, installed, Communityservices and BSD subsystems. However there is no OPEN SSH.
I can see the other two packages if I go to un-install section. I have WiFi signal and IP is 192.168.11.8.
I deleted AppTapp from my desktop. Downloaded it again, unzipped and re-used it again with phone. Everything went normal, gave me success - quite message, but still no OPEN SSH in the list. What am I doing wrong?
09-30-2007, 09:06 AM #54
Zack, i just kept doing 'refresh' about every 15 mins and eventually it showed up as an option to install -- hope that helps
09-30-2007, 09:21 AM #55
drewf, thanks for post!
I am on-line sitting in front of my MAC book and looking at this forum like to lifeline.
I don't quite understand the process. I thought that AppTapp downloads needed files from Internet (takes few minutes to do download, could see blue bar advancing) and then it transfers it into the phone (blue/white bar flashes).
Now you have files inside a phone and how is it possible that something is missing anyway? I have whole list of files (packages) but no SSH.
What is a purpose of WiFi in this anyway? Is phone downloading something fron the Internet?
09-30-2007, 09:31 AM #56
Zack, I'm truly a noob, this is my first phone -- I almost continued onto step 4 but I didn't have 1.0.2 which i thought i did
so i had to start all over -- i'm now at this exact step again and can't get OpenSSH to show up --- my best guess is that the apps are hosted and its going out to the net to see whats available for install
hope you get it installed, I'm trying again also

drewf, I installed my first iPhone yesterday and it took me whole evening but mostly because my own mistakes. I thought that second time it will be easy since I know what to expect where but no luck.
I really wish if someone could explain that mystery about missing SSH and WiFi. I counted applications on this phone and there are 24 packages. On unlocked phone I counted 43 packages (!) + obviously some already installed.
I guess I have to keep trying like you said, refreshing the list.
09-30-2007, 09:47 AM #58
Hmm .. this is my second iPhone to unlock but somehow the OpenSSH is missing and been refreshing for the 11th time.
09-30-2007, 12:53 PM #59
Everybody, Open SSH is on-line (or available) now. Try it, 1:53 EST!

I'm stuck at running AppTap. After I click on Continue it says DOWNLOADING FIRMWARE and it runs for more than 20 mins. Then when it completes I get an error message.
I restored my iPhone (1.0.2) then removed AppTap, downloaded it and unzipped it again. Still encountering the same thing (more than 20 mins in the Downlaoding Firmware)
