Thread: SSH Clarification

  1. #1
    Default SSH Clarification
    Hi, new here. I'm a new iPhone owner and have been reading up on jailbreaking and was just looking for a little clarification on a point. Please stop me if I'm misunderstanding something. In order to transfer files between the iPhone and my computer, I will have to use SSH, right? And if I'm reading the guide here properly, that's done through your wireless network via WinSCP (running Vista here). I don't have a wireless network. Is there another way of transferring files, or am I reading this wrong? Thanks for any advice!

    To transfer files "manually" you have to SSH which takes WIFI.

    However, when you jailbreak you can install "Cydia" and/or "Installer" which are both app repositories that will allow you to install apps straight from your iphone.

    the easiest method is with the iphonebrowser = iphonebrowser - Google Code or DiskAid = DiskAid - Transfer Files betwen your Computer and your iPhone or iPod Touch. Disk Mode for your iPhone and iPod Touch.

    ive used both, i tend to use diskaid more and im glad i dont have to deal with winscp, wifi and all that for regular use anymore.

    1.connect iphone with usb cable to computer
    2.start one of the above programs---
    3. browse/transfer/edit files till youre bored silly
