    Hi everyone,
    I got a jailbroken iPhone 5 on iOS 7.1.1 and when I try to access raw file system with ifunbox, I can't find it anywhere. This is what I got :

    But I shoud got something like this :

    I have already installed afc2add tweak in Cydia but I still can't find raw file system.
    I really need help here, I'm confused. Thank you very much.

    Mine also does that in iFunbox.
    i used WinSCP instead, connecting via SFTP, to copy back my GroovyLock lockscreen.

    So I'm not the only one who got this problem aha.:D
    I see, so you access your iDevice wirelessly right ? Is it secured, I mean it have no risk right ?

    Although I've never had the problem myself, I read about a possible malfunction with iFunBox and iPhones jailbroken with evasi0n. Then, the devs of iFunBox rekommandier installing

    afc2add

    from cydia. Maybe that package works with Pangu JB?


    Edit: Pengu, not Pangu :)

    Edit2: ah nvm

    Yeah I'm also wondering if it works with Pangu jailbreak, if someone can confirm.
    By the way I can access my raw file system with iFile directly on my iPhone without any issue.

    i believe there is a version of afc2add on the 25pp ,or whatever its called repo, that was optional with pangu.

    I have not tried it and will be waiting for cydia's updated version
    in the meantime ssh does work

    iOS 7.1.x breaks the afc2add package

    For now, you'll have to use OpenSSH if you want to access your device's file system

    Just make sure to change your mobile and root password if you install OpenSSH!

    Alright I'll do that then.
    What you mean by "changing password" ? You mean after I modified files ? And how to change root password btw ?

    EDIT : Nvm I see now. But isn't better to disable SSH when I don't use it ? Via SBSettings or BossPrefs.

    This is correct and the 25pp version does work as a temporary measure until the genuine get an update.

    true, you can disable it but it can be very useful if something ever happens to your device. it does more than just accessing the file system, you can run commands via SSH. I keep my SSH on all the time

    although, the choice is up to you. afc2add can be just as dangerous if someone has physical access to your device (they don't even need a password to access your file system)

    The BigBoss version of afc2add very likely won't ever work again on iOS versions greater than 7.1. Apple completely removed all command arguments from the afc binary after they where used with the iOS 7.0 jailbreak. In order to fix that problem, the BigBoss repo would have to host a pre-iOS 7.1 version of the afc binary. That would cause problems with copyright infringement. Still, those that use afc2 should not be using it at all. Most, if not all, of the iOS hackers discourage its use due to file permissions problems and device access. Instead one should use SSH to access their device's filesystem. Saurik wrote up a rather nice article about it.

    PNG files in iOS are optimised for iOS devices. You need to convert them with a special iOS PNG converter application before a regular application can view or edit them.
