    Default Can't connect to my phone?
    Ok so for the last few months I've been using a pc to mod my iPhone. I'm running 1.1.1 right now and I just got a MacBook and I'm trying to do everything on that now because I despise Windows. Anyway, I looked at the guides for ftp-ing stuff in OS X and it says to use Fugu, so I downloaded that and I'm doing everything it's saying but it won't connect to my phone. It asks for the password and I type in "dottie" and it says it's not right. I remember using WinSCP to do it in Windows and after typing dottie it would ask for like another verification, and the password for that was "alpine." I've tried both and neither one gets into the phone. I'm connecting to port 22, I have the IP address right, the user name is "root", what the hell am I doing wrong? I even downloaded cyberduck and it can't get in either.

    Help please.

    1. jailbreakme.com (go here and install it from your iphone). a new icon will be on your iphone called installer. this app lets you install all kinds of other apps.

    2. install SummerBoard from installer. (then you can install themes directly from your phone without having to go through any of the trouble listed below). go back into installer and you'll see a category for Themes (SummerBoard). Install away!

    3. Now if you still want to move them from your computer to your iphone, see below.


    4. install BSD subsystem (from list of apps available from Installer)

    5. install OpenSSH. once installed and having access to your wifi get your iphones IP address from Settings->Wifi->click the arrow next to the wifi network you are connected to. you'll then see your IP address.

    6. SSH into your phone. ssh -l root 10.x.x.x (use your ip address). if using a mac just use the Terminal app to ssh. if windows, i don't know find a terminal type app to command line to use ssh.

    7. Use password "dottie" or "alpine" when asked after ssh'ing into your phone.

    8. get a SFTP program to transfer files to your iphone from your computer. server will be your IP address of your iphone, user = root, password = dottie or alpine.

    9. Summerboard themes are in Library/SummerBoard/Themes/ , this is the directory you'll place your themes. each theme should have it's own folder.
