    Is there a way to see a password for a wifi network that someone has entered on my iPhone? I want to JB, but my iPhone keeps crashling with JB apps. So, I was going to restore to factory, JB, install.. But then I will lose all my wifi passwords.

    Thanks

    Actually there is a way. Its similar to keychain access if you will. You have to be able to browse your root files, the passwords are stored but encrypted.

    Actually, all you need to do is restore from a backup once you've completed the JB and you'll have all of your wifi passwords. And email accounts, SMSs, etc.

    I have a Mac and am familiar with Keychain. Could you point me in the right direction using my iPhone, please?

    The keychains are here:

    /private/var/Keychains

    and

    /var/Keychains

    I don't think you'll be able to do anything with them though. I could be wrong. BTW, I copied to my Desktop to look at them. I wouldn't mess with them on your phone.
