How to FTP into your iPhone/iPod/iPad using WinSCP

You will probably notice the term "FTP into your iPhone/iPod" used a lot when it comes to doing things on your device. What the hell does FTP into your iPhone/iPod mean? Well basically it's how you will be able to browse the file system on your device. Just like you would browse your hard drive on your computer going thru all the files. Sometimes you might need to replace a file such as when you need to install a cracked file for an app or perhaps to change a font on your device etc. Whatever the case may be if your going to pursue iPhone/iPod modding you absolutely must know how to FTP into your device.

Things you will need.
  • iPhone/iPod
  • WinSCP Click to Download
  • Install OpenSSH via Cydia
  • Connect your device to your WiFi network in your house.

First things first, if you are just now installing OpenSSH for the first time you need to reboot your device before continuing.

After doing that you need to go into Settings->Wi-Fi Networks and click on the blue arrow next to the network that your connected to. You should now have a screen that looks like this.



Now your gonna wanna take note of your devices IP Address As you can see mine is 192.168.1.109

Next open up WinSCP that you downloaded. Make sure you enter in everything just as pictured below, well with the exception of the Host name: you need to enter in YOUR IP Address instead.



Now click Login

Next you should get a pop-up window saying
Searching for host
Connecting to host
Followed by another window telling you that your devices key was not found in the cache etc. Just click on Yes to continue.

That's it! You should now be looking at a screen just like the one below.

I have a couple questions:
1. Is this method via wifi? How can I FTP into my phone via the 30-pin USB cable?
2. How can I FTP into my phone and backup my contacts?

Thanks,
Cyph

To FTP into your phone manually check out
How to FTP into your iPhone/iPod using iFunBox (Very Simple) - SiNfuL iPhone

As for backing up your contacts, your probably better off just doing it via iTunes but if you want to it manually then just FTP into your phone and goto
/private/var/mobile/Library/AddressBook and backup the two files in that folder.

So far so good, but still can not login!
I installed OpenSSH from Cydia and rebooted.
Checked my iPhone IP address and use Filezilla as FTP client (free, runs on Windoze and Linux) and I am so used to FileZilla as I used it lots to access my Motorola RAZR2 V8 (also Linux OS).
FileZilla connects and iPhone response with "fzSftp started", then I see
Command open"root@192.168.2.5:22"
and then "Connection timed out"
This might be as I do not know the root password (never set one, hence used the "alpine" from the above example)
Any ideas where I go wrong?

Another question is: Is it possible to telnet into the iPhone, like "telnet 192.168.2.5"?

Ehh ... can not find anything SSH toggle in Settings.
Sorry, still a noob!

Update:
Used WinSCP and got my passkey and connected OK, then tried Filezilla and got passkey again and also worked fine.
Tried to install MyBrute 1.8.ipa (cracked) with iTunes but did not work due to "not being authorised" - even after changing the the "iTunesMetadata.plist" of MyBrute.ipa to my iTunes account. So I tried Installing with WinSCP and SSH, but can not find that Download folder, however I found all the other apps, which are in long named (letters and numbers) folders.
Any ideas about this?

Another update to the above post:
Installed My Brute.ipa with 91 PC Suite 2.6.2.108, but it terminates soon after launching, so have given up on that.
Found out that I can use SFTP over WiFi, which is cool.

My Brute terminates / crashes because it doesn't have a working crack that I know of. All of the cracks either crash or don't load the game.

Thanks for the info on WinSCP. I've always been wondering what the whole 'SSH' thing was.

WinSCP

I can't get past the activation since the pics are no longer on the explanation.
Don't know what I should put in for username and password or if I have to make any other changes on that window.

Help please
