    no, I was getting close to using all my space up and i was trying to sync/clear things and i'm sure I messed something up, cause during the process it said Itunes can no longer read the file contents of the iphone.

    I can't remember the file name, but deleting a certain file by SSHing can fix this. I just can't remember what the file name is no matter how hard I try.

    Anytime you do any manual file manipulation, you stand the risk of doing exactly what you have done.

    Since you cannot remember what file(s) you deleted/altered, we certainly cannot help you.

    You will have to restore and stay away from doing this again in the future.

    ok, figured it out (google is such a great tool)

    anyway deleting the file ItunesCDB using ifile fixed this and itunes is reading my phone again.

    Delete these files (after backing them up just in case)


    • iTunesControl
    • iTunesCDB
    • iTunesDB

    After that, to be safe, back up your data on iTunes.

    It's awkward how we posted the same thing at the same exact time :D
