Hey guys, first post here came across the forum in a web search, looks like a nice community :)

Down to my problem.

I was watching a you tube video on a walk through of how to get ROMS onto your iPhone. I have the ROM I want, and I have a working wifi connection, yet every time I go into WIN SCP and put in my IP with root as user and alpine as password, as it's meant to be, it just says connection error and won't let me transfer anything onto the iPhone?

Any help please?

WiFi on iPhone is connected to the same network.
SSH is turned on on iPhone
iPhone is not locked with pass code

1. Check
2. This is where the problem is, SSH is not showing up on my iPhone but it is defo installed, because I uninstalled it and reinstalled it?
3. Explain 3rd point? it is unlocked and has been jailbroken if thats what u mean? because I have lots of apps running on it?

Sorry I'm a total n00b ;) Help meeee?

set autolock to never and make sure your homescreen is up.

When you put the phone in sleep, it disconnects wifi.

That one hung me up for a little while. Hopefully thats what you have going on.

Since you appear to be on a PC, I would download a program called iPhonebrowser. It is an ssh client like WinSCP but does not require any login. It is not as powerful as WinSCP but it allows dragging and dropping of files to copy them to and from the phone.
