Have you considered just using iPhoneBrowser? It's free and gives you root access to your phone. It's just not wireless, you have to connect the phone to the computer with the USB cable.

Open Cydia and in the search type in SSH and download Automatic SSH and also Toggle SSH

Once thats done download WinSCP from Here

Once you have downloaded and installed it open the Program

Go onto your iPhone find the open the Toggle SSH Program and click Enable

Then on your iPhone go to Settings > Wi-Fi then click on your network and note down the IP Address.

Once you have got this open WinSCP and in the host name box type your IP address

In the username box type root and in the password box type alpine

Then press save then login and then it will come up with a warning about a key file just press yes

Then it will ask for a password just type in alpine then thats it your done.
