    You can use CyberDuck, but you need to make sure that you have sftp enabled on the iPhone.

    To do it using SCP use Fugu

    After you get the browser working you can follow the windows wiki for installing, as it is the same.

    How can I enable sftp? I've gotten SSH going but that was a huge hassle.

    You need to put this file in usr/libexec

    (make sure that you give it full permissions)

    sorry what would the process be for giving it full permissions?

    chmod +x filename

    or something?

    to use chmod, you have to use SSH
    first, login to your iphone (user=root, pw=dottie)
    then navigate to the folder cd /usr/libexec
    drop the file over putfile filename
    then change the properties of the file chmod +x filename

    I dont know about all that.... that seems like too much work...


    ALL I DO, ON OSX LEOPARD 10.5x IS USE "TRANSMIT" http://osx.iusethis.com/app/transmit

    -make sure your on the same wirleless network
    -(in iphone) go to settings, WI-FI, choose network (one your connected to by hitting the blue arrow on the
    right) this will show you the wireless IP address your iphone is connected with..
    -use that IP address to plug into "Server" in the Transmit app
    -User Name: root
    -Password : alpine
    -**** change protocal to "SFTP" and hit connect

    Wha-Lah

    From there, you just choose the "/" folder then OPEN (double-click) applications folder. You should be able to drag and drop the folder of the app into the Transmit App from Finder (or where ever you have the app that you want to install)

    -Once this is done, you will most likely have to do a re-spring.... or others have said to install an app from CYDIA

    hope this helps....... IT SHOULD...
