    The device is an iPhone 4, iOS 7.1 beta 1, jailbroken with cydia updated.

    When I tried to add a source, I closed cydia, and it corrupted the sources file. It says there is a malformation in line 5. Therefore I want to open this file from the computer, since I did not install iFile, and I also do not have SSH installed on it.

    How can I do this? I'm on a mac. I tried with iFunbx, but it won't show the root folders, only the media one.

    Is there something else I can do to access the root ones with my mac?

    Thank you!

    If you can't sort it from safe mode can't you just restore and start again ?

    Make sure you only add trusted, non-piracy repos !

    Are people really stupid enough to add piracy repos? Surely not.

    Install afc2add from cydia and you'll be able to access root via USB

    I made a thread about this yesterday because I was having the same problem. The solution is what darricksailo says. Install "afc2add". And of course, install "openSSH" too from Cydia.

    openSSH isn't required if you don't plan to SSH into the device

    But if you do plan to use it, change the default password.

    The problem is that I am able to use my phone without any problem, but I'm unable to use cydia, so I cannot install something from cydia if it's not working. Also it's easy to restore it, but I want to know how to access the filesystem (root) without installing something from cydia.. C'mon, its jaillbroken, should be a way trough USB that I could do it?

    afc2add doesn't seem to have been packaged with evasi0n7 so unfortunately, doesn't seem like you can access the file system with these programs
