just ssh into your iPhone using winscp or transmit (mac) and look for etc folder and then the file called host open it with a editor and add this at the bottom of the text in a new line

don't know

i am on a mac and i just opened it with text editor so i am guessing on yours maybe wordpad but don't use Word because it puts other characters in you don't need.


If this is wrong please someone correct me.

This isn't working for me, I'm not sure if i'm doing it right. I don't have the file host, the one i have says hosts. Does that make a difference? The last line in the hosts file is:
::1 localhost
64.12.161.185 login.oscar.aol.com (this is where i started the address)

No joy here either...

Does it matter if I cut and paste? Each should be a separate line as in the original post, correct? Any advice. I'm on a mac using cyberduck and text edit. The file appears to have saved correctly when I check.

Actually you don't even have to do that..just make sure the /etc/hosts file has full read/write permissions and then install Apollo. It'll automatically add the entries it requires.

You can either do this via SSH or Term-VT100:
cd \etc
chmod 666 hosts

Now install Apollo (or I'm assuming MobileChat) via Installer and they should work fine.

Thank you both. I used the zip folder and my .mac logon is now working, but not hotmail? I would appreciate it if one of you would tell me how to set permissions on a mac. I had done this a few times early in my iPhone modding career, but was on a windows box. I have converted to a mac and am not sure how to perform this action now.

Thanks again,

If you want to set permissions for a file in iPhone, lets say your in transmit and you are in your file system hold ctrl and click then go to get info and you will see permissions there.

Thats it

I added exactly what you said to the hosts file, and replaced the old one on my phone, and still receive the server authentication error.

some times it does do that you have to turn off and turn on again and when that happens down the bottom it should say stuff like "handshaking and connecting" it does sometimes take a few tries to get it mine does exactly the same but this is only until the sdk comes then i am sure we will see a lot more chat programs.
