I can't get iPHUC to jailbreak
I'm trying to follow these instructions:
In the middle of step 2, it says to "getfile fstab", but I don't have access to fstab file on the iphone. What am I doing wrong?
PS. I'm using a MBP
I also ran into this problem. Everything worked great until this point. The iPhone would not automatically reboot after the recovery, and I wonder if that is related to it.
I tried switching to iActivator for jailbreak but I get a "pairing issue" error.
To tell the truth, the only way I managed to both jailbreak and install dropbear was using iOpener (I think it's been posted on the WIKI, but you can also google for it). Part of the problem I was having before was trying to use the new iPhone DMG, rather than the old one. Since it's just a boot-image, it turns out it doesn't matter from the iPhone's perspective which one you use, though the tools do require the older version. I tried to rectify the situation by editing the source and changing the filenames, but for some reason that didn't work.
Also, something else I had missed previously, is that with iphuc, it is necessary to issue the command, 'setafc com.apple.afc2' in order to gain access to the main filesystem. To lock down the phone, Apple has chosen to normally keep this hidden. Issuing this command tells the iPhone to unhide the data, which you can then access.
Unfortunately iOpener didn't install scp (which isn't too difficult to fix), so I had the addtional steps of:
1. 'setafc com.apple.afc2' with iphuc
a. cd bin
b. putfile chmod # from iphone-binkit
c. cd /usr/sbin/
d. putfile scp # from iphone-ssh-bin
2. ssh to iphone
a. cd /usr/sbin
b. /bin/chmod 755 scp
3. Reboot iPhone (actually, I forget if this is necessary, so you only have to do this if the next step fails)
4. From the command prompt you can copy all the necessary files over using scp
a. scp -r * <ip-address-of-iphone>:/ # from iphone-binkit
then if you want to install any apps, you can also just scp them over. For example, for Terminal.app, you can do:
scp -r Terminal.app <ip-address>:/Applications/
then reboot the iPhone, and Terminal will be there.
Also, note that each time you reboot the iPhone, you will have to use iPHUC to do the 'setafc com.apple.afc2' thing. I haven't looked into yet if it's possible to issue that command from the iPhone itself.. this would make it so you wouldn't even have to use iPHUC.
