    Default Removing Files

    I installed the SSH and have transferred a few applications over, my question is how do I erase them off the iPhone hd?

    Using WinSCP as in the writeup on hacktheiphone, any time I copy over a file it works fine, but when I try to delete anything it gives me an error. Can anyone let me know how I go about deleting files that Ive copied over once I dont want them there anymore?

    You'll want to upload some or all of the files from the latest iPhone binkit, in the same folder structure (/bin in /bin, /usr/bin in /usr/bin, etc). Then run ssh ("ssh root@iPhoneIPaddress") and you can delete files with "rm /path/to/file". As always, be careful when deleting.

    Or simply scp the rm command to the bin folder in the iphone root

    Ive copied the bin filed and everything, and still get a Permission Denied error... anything Ive missed that would cause that? I logged in with the default passwords root/dottie passwords..

    I had the same permission denied problem.

    After installing the binkit, give all files in the /bin/ directory 755chmod by using the WinSCP program, reboot iphone, and you should be able to use the commands, for example deleting folders.

    Dumb question, but what is the 755chmod?

    (I used 'chmod +x /****/' to activate the applications)

    @SebSter85 - 755 gives write permissions for root, in addition to read/execute for all
