Thread: Lost Folders--Help

    Unhappy Lost Folders--Help
    I have not had my iphone very long. I had it less than a week and my son jailbroke it for me. My problem is I cannot find out how to access my folders. For example /private/var/mobile. I have NO idea?? I have read and searched all over the internet and it seems most people have a visible folder for this. Is this correct? Maybe someone can point me in the right direction or tell me how to reinstall it if it has been deleted? Thank You.

    I did all that you instructed and got as far as the putty button - about changing your passwords - it sait it could not find a putty file. Is that even important? What does that mean? Thank You

    Turning off OpenSSh is done with SBSettings or ToggleSSH. If you can't change your passwords (both!) it is advisable to do this.

    But why not download iPhoneBrowser or DiskAid? These tools are much easier to install on your computer and they work immediately (through the USB cable) to show you the folders. You don't even need to install anything to your iPhone.
    Windows tool to edit .plist, .strings and .nib files: pledit.
    Or use a website that will convert the binary form to a readable format.
    On iPhone you can convert those files in a terminal with plutil (installed with Erica Utilities from Cydia), or edit them with iFile (from Cydia).
