    I can't seem to get the fix to work either. I've tried using both Wordpad and Notepad, no luck. Ideas?

    1.0.0 OTB
    1.1.3 jailbroken manually
    04.03.13_G firmware

    it worked right away for me, using a mac tho, maybe after you put the hosts file back you guys should try restarting the iphone, i did that to make sure it was updated and it's good to go now

    the good - it works for AIM
    the bad - it doesn't work for MSN (haven't tried it on .mac)
    the worst - it will quite often make your entire iPhone freeze upon reboot. Home screen looks fine, but will be frozen tight as a drum when launching anything.

    Default Fix for MSN
    Here is a fixed Apollo.app that will work with MSN.
    Simply put the included "host" file in /ect and "Apollo.app" in /Applications
    Apollo.app may need to be chmod'd.

    First of all, you have to install OpenSSH from installer before you can do any uploading over the network.

    If you're just trying to get to the iPhone after already doing all that, you just need to input the IP address of your iPhone (Settings>[WIRELESS NETWORK NAME]>[blue arrow by network name]), the user name and password ("root" and "alpine", respectively), and set the file protocol to SCP.

    (2) bin
    (3) cores
    (4) dev
    (5) etc (also an alias or shortcut)
    (6) Library
    (7) mach
    . . . . and so on and so on.

    The folder you want to get into is the "etc" folder. Open that up and you will see a small text file called "hosts" Just open that up in a simple text editor like "BBedit or Simpletext (Mac) or Notepad (PC) and add that copy (that Zal91 posted) at the end of that text file.

    Do NOT, I repeat NOT use Microsoft Word to edit this text file as Word puts in all kinds of formatting crap that can really screw it up.

    That's it.

    You might want to make a backup copy of that "hosts" file in case you screw it up.

    But that's it.
    I have installed the BossTool app, it runs but it doesn't work, I mean, it doesn't relocate fonts, ringtons or applications, I'm running out of space on disk.

    Before I upgraded from 1.1.2 to 1.1.3 it worked OK, but now I can't make it work. Any suggestions?

    After a couple weeks trying, I discovered the Following:

    1) If you edit the HOSTS file in Notepad and upload it to the iPhone It will NOT work. Download an available copy from the forum. The copy I used to get it work is this: http://la.gg/upl/Fixed_Apollo.zip
    I ONLY copied the hosts file to tne folder /etc/ and ir Worked fine.

    2) You might need to change the permissions of the Apollo folder. Run the folowing command in vt100:
    chmod -R 777 /Applications/Apollo.app/*

    Thats It, after doing that, I suceeded.

    I'm running Firmware 1.1.4.

    I tried something else that worked better for me, I added the sendowski source and downloaded a newer version of mobilechat and works very fine.

    You should try.
