    I have an iPhone 3G and an iPhone 4. I have forgotten the wifi password in my house, and I don't have it written down. My iPhone 3G has the password on it and can connect, but it's iOS version can't be upgraded for most of my important apps to work. I need to somehow get the password from the 3G and put it on the 4.

    I know that a jailbroken iPhone can get a wifi passwords app from cydia, but I have no idea where to begin jailbreaking. I'm really stuck here. Does anyone know how I can get the password? If not, can you guide me through jailbreaking?

    I do not know the answer to your question. However can you access your router setup with a computer and "define" a new password. The model number of the router and manual should help guide you.

    Wouldn't it be easier to reset the router and set a new password ? Which would be also a good security practice.

    You probably have to reset your router to the default password (try Google) and then log in and reconfigure. This time write the password down. :D

    It's a shared computer. I can't reset the password without angering a large family, and they don't have the password either.

    Well *somebody* gotta be in charge in that household and if it ain't u, oops. My take is WIFI pwds are encrypted and unbreakable.

    You can use redsn0w to jailbreak the device if it's on a supported firmware version. What iOS is the 3G on?

    This sounds...weird to me, NO ONE in the house knows the password, yet would all be angry if you changed it? I'm not saying you're doing something fishy, I've just never lived anywhere where this is the case.

    How would resetting it anger them? If you reset it they will know what it is now.

    Well obviously, someone knew because they told you it.

    If you JB your iphone you can install the package called "wifi Passwords".
    The app displays all the wifi passwords you have entered when connecting to secure networks.
