I am modding for the first time and need to figure out the following:

Phase II (Install SSH on iPhone)
2.) Copy com.apple.update.plist from the sshkit folder to the jailbreak kit folder on your PC.

I have 3 "
com.apple.update.plist" files:
1. "com.apple.update.plist.chmod" which is 779 bytes
2. "com.apple.update.plist.hackinit"
which is 535 bytes
3. "com.apple.update.plist.orig "
which is 0 bytes

Which file do I copy?

Thanks,
Cali

If everything went as planned, there should be a file named com.apple.update.plist in the sshkit folder. sshify-windows.bat should have done that for you. I would run it again, as it sounds like something is awry.

No. Right before the end of sshify-windows.bat is this line:
copy com.apple.update.plist.hackinit com.apple.update.plist

That makes a copy of copy com.apple.update.plist.hackinit as com.apple.update.plist. Ergo, you should have copy com.apple.update.plist in the sshkit folder.

Yes you can copy com.apple.update.plist.hackinit to com.apple.update.plist manually, and then putfile it, but I would be concerned why you have to do that (i.e., perhaps another part of the script didn't finish correctly either).

So far that looks normal. Go ahead and use com.apple.update.plist.hackinit (copied over as com.apple.update.plist).

BTW: The whole reason for this step is because com.apple.update.plist.hackinit is not copied by sshify-windows.bat. This is why you see " fileref: 0" at the end (that's supposed to be where com.apple.update.plist is copied to the iPhone).

The latest WinSCP is different to the one described in the tutorial. Which version do i need.
Also, "Enter user name of root and password of alpine"
what is the name and password? (root and alpine)
There is no file protocol "SHP"

I used the most current version of WinSCP (4.0.4), so am not sure what you meant by your version being different.

Username and password are exactly that: the username and password that you use when setting up the connection to the iPhone.

VERY CAREFULLY, go into each folder and delete its contents. Make sure what you are deleting matches the contents of the same folder on your PC (so you don't delete something that was already there). Once finished delete the folders, if empty.

When I copied the folders from "BSD_Base-2.0" into the "root" directory I got an error message and then the root was gone.........doing a restore again to retry.
Any idea what happened?

Not without knowing the exact error message.

Keep in mind you can always copy the files from folder to folder (i.e., from bin to /bin).

Thanks, glad you made it. Give yourself a big pat on the back.

As for what to do next, I would install iBrickr 0.91 (on your PC) and then install Summerboard 1.1.1 (not 2.11).
