Thread: Swirly MMS

  1. #1
    Default Swirly MMS
    Hope someone here can help me, I just installed swirly mms on my iphone, and everything seemed to go fine until I try to open it, I get to the screen with the "SwirlyMMS" logo, then it immediately closes !! I tried using Bosstools to free up space, but it hasn`t made any difference, it still just opens, then closes again.
    Any help greatly appreciated

    Ok guys, I finally managed to get this app working, so for anyone else having problems, here`s what I done.
    First of all I changed all the permissions to 755 (using cute ftp pro)
    I then installed Term-vt100, but found that I couldn`t log in !
    Then I added hxxp://www.trejan.com/irepo/ to installer and added the following fixes found under "Tweaks (1.1.3)" in that order:

    1. SUID Lib Fix
    2. Term-vt100 SUID fix

    After that I got into Term-vt100, and added the following :
    cd /Applications
    chmod +s SwirlyMMS.app/SwirlyMMS
    chown root:wheel SwirlyMMS.app

    Rebooted, and now Swirly MMS works a treat.

    Hope this can be of some help to someone.

    I really wish I wasn't a n00b at all of this stuff. I'm at 1.1.3 but I'm not to great at stuff like this. Can anyone explain to someone who isn't an IT expert? or should I not try to mess with something I have no clue about?

    I`m no expert either dude, and it does all look a little scary, but I just looked for all the info online, (such as this forum) read everything carefully (twice) and then when I thought I understood everything I gave it a try, luckily it worked ok

    I am pretty sure that AT&T can tell from your imei number that u are using an iPhone and they block mms message capabilities from iPhones. I have read on here where some people have success with swirly and AT&T but most folks get the same send errors u are getting.

    How do I do that with bosstools? I'm new to all this sorry. And I've heard of people talking AT&T into allowing their SIM to send MMS by saying they are using another phone to send the message, anyone have success with that here?

    use bossprefs not bosstools...version 1.67 has an option to fix user directory permissions...It is located under the "more" tab in the upper right hand side of the main screen in bossprefs...hope this helps you
