    What version iPhone do you have?
    1.1.3/4 usually have problems. If you run the following commands in term-vt100 or SSH into your phone, it should fix your problem.

    cd /Applications
    chmod +s SwirlyMMS.app/SwirlyMMS
    chown root:wheel SwirlyMMS.app

    Good luck.

    Make sure you get the capitalization right. It's case sensitive

    I did it, worked fine for me. But there is still bugs in the program, still crashes sometimes.
    Yeah, you have to make sure you write it exactly as it appears... Every capital letter the same.

    Are you new here gros21? Have you ever SSH into your iPhone? I'll write up a guide for you if you like?

    Also if you install the 1.1.3 general fix and symbolic link maker found on installer under tweaks 1.1.3 and system, it should be able to fix the issue.

    I have Swirly working the 1st timer ever today, and I was able to send a pic for the first time EVER through the app.....today!

    The new version 0.3.2 works with 1.1.3/1.1.4 Just add their source:

    swirlyspace.com/SwirlySpace.xml

  11. #10

    You should only have to enter the password but if you enter it wrong it will then ask for the login.
    The default login and pass are as follows:
    Login: root
    Password: alpine

    When you type in the pass nothing will show up. Don't worry though, it's still entering. Just for security reasons...

    You have to make sure you have "BSD Subsystems" and "SUID Lib Fix" installed through installer for Term-vt100 to work properly...

    Hope it helped.
    Matt.

    It worked fine in mine... I have the new version install and works without problems. Haven't tried out the new receive feature yet though...

    a quicker fix i found was just to uninstall swirly mms and to install it from swirly mms official installer source

  16. #15
    how do i get to the official installer source

  17. #16
    cd /Applications
    chmod +s SwirlyMMS.app/SwirlyMMS
    chown root:wheel SwirlyMMS.app


    After you add these commands what do you do then? do you just hit the home button or is there anything you do to save the commands

    Just hit the home button. When you type in each command it is automatically sent to the program.

    So get out of Term and reset your iPhone. Then when your phone turns back on just open swirly mms and see if it worked...

    If not, do the commands again.
