Trying to fix my iPhone with iRecovery
Forgive me if this is posted in the wrong section but this was the only one that made sense to me:
I was messing around with something and renamed "/usr/libexec/securityd" to "/usr/libexec/securityd.bak" not realizing how badly this would screw things up. Now my phone won't boot past the Apple logo and I need to copy or rename that file back to it's original name.
I can tether my phone, put it in recovery mode, and get to it through iRecovery but I don't know what command to use to name the file back. Perhaps I am not understanding how the recovery shell works but this is what I tried to no avail:
fs mv /usr/libexec/securityd.bak /usr/libexec/securityd
Is there something else I have to do first like mount the file-system? Any help would be greatly appreciated as I lost the only backup I had of my phone so I don't want to restore it.
i agree this would be really good info, wish someone knows how to rename files through Irecovery.
i know what i did i installed a mobile substrate iconclasm which sucks and destroys ur iphone and ssh wont even load when the boot icon is stuck. but if i renames the folder to .old I bet the phone would start.
Basically, it is not possible to do what you want with the stock iBoot that you have on your phone. The more advanced options have been disabled from iBoot unless you have an "engineering/internal test" iPhone (ie you work in the iPhone team at Apple). Some functions have been completely removed from newer firmwares to improve security
