Thread: edit auto correction

  1. #1
    Default edit auto correction
    is there anyway to ssh into the iphone and get to the auto correction files they use for text. sometimes i use curse words and they are replaced. like sh*t is replaced with shot. is there a way to get into that file and add your own words?

    I'm guess a HEX editor might work nice to copy the special characters in front of each word I want to place in there.

    That file is binary and cannot be edited with an ASCII text editor.

    I wrote a program that lets you add words to the file, but it requires installation of Perl.
