    :confused: Sorry, I don't have the slightest idea what you are talking about

    Are you asking where the photos on the camera roll are stored ? If so, your question is not even close to asking that.

    I assume you mean the camera roll? If so, the folder is /var/mobile/DCIM/100APPLE

    Follow the path you were given

    Edit: Guess you were given an incorrect path. Glad you found it !

    Wrong. :)

    /var/mobile/Media/DCIM/XXXAPPLE/

    The XXX could be any 3 digits. Usually 100 or 101

    Also, you can download iFile for free from Cydia as well. It's shareware. I use the free version because I don't need playlists and the stuff the full version offers. The free version does most regular file manipulation quite well.

    I hope you're right about this. I had passed over iFile, because I thought it was a trial that would end.

    I'm 100% sure I'm right. :D I've been using it since it's initial release.

    Well, I'm glad I saw your post, because I was searching for anything free that was like iFile. There's nothing. Thanks!

    accessing root directory

    Hi guys and gals.

    I am new to this forum and no that tech savy.

    I have recently updated my iphone 3GS firmware from 3.1.2 to 3.1.3. Jailbroke with spirit. Prior to the upgrade when using iphone explorer i was able to access the root directory and now since the upgrade i am not able to access it. I am only able to access /var/mobile/Media.

    I am however able to access the root when using iFile. OH, i am a windows guy not mac.

    Anyone who can help with step by step instruction on how i can get to access the root directory again.

    Mail me directly if you can cs"at"creighdon"dot"co"dot"za
