    Is there a way to see files of the iPhone and access them without jailbreaking and using Open SSH, i just need to replace one file in my iPhone and thats it, i don't want to jailbreak cause i won't use the installer. Is there any app that allows you to look at the files without jailbreaking?

    Actually you can using a program called DiskAid. It works for 2.0 at least. Not sure about 2.0.1. The url is http://www.digidna.net/diskaid/. It defaults to the media folders but click the menu on the bottom to switch to root. It doesn't let you change permissions though so I'm not sure if it'll work for what you need it for.

    Thats pretty cool! thanks, though i can't access the files i need. It doesn't show me root though, maybe if it did it would work, i was able to place the file i needed into, but not in the right place, i don't need to change any permissions, just need to delete a file and replace it with a different one. Did you use windows of Mac?

    Well, you could developer your own file managing program. Just a thought.

    PhineView can do that!

    Actually the small program from ecamm can do that, call "PhoneView".

    It can access iOS file system without jailbreak.

    I bought it, and it is worth the money, even though half of my iDevices are jailbreak, I still prefer using PhoneView most of the time for quick picture, music access and some modifications.

    The most important thing is you have to be sure which folder or file is the one you need.

    I recently used DiskAid and I didnt like it its good if you want to use the device as a usb. I prefer to SSH in with open SSH, the only problem is that I have to jailbreak it :(. I wouldn't have a problem with that except that when I jailbreak my iphones they always get slower than they were prior(prob b/c of the increased new files and ram usage).

    so, if anyone can find a program that does SSH the same way that one would when they have open SSH on a jailbroken phone please let us know!

    What if I need only view access to the root?

    All I need to do is be able to view the files in the root system. Don't need edit/write etc. Is that possible with any program?

    I am paranoid about a few photos I deleted and want to ensure that they are not sitting in the root directory. Have checked in the DCIM folder already and it is empty. Appreciate any help I can get on this.

    The root directory is not writable, thus it will never have your pictures in it. The only place they would be is in the DCIM folder. If you've checked there and it was empty, then your pictures are gone.
