    Hey everyone, I use audio recorder to record my phone calls and now I need two large calls both over 1 hour to be transferred from my iphone to my computer.

    However, when I click the share button the recordings attach but when I click send the mailcomposer crashes due to a low memory issue according to crashreporter. I have iexplorer and filemanager installed and none can give me access to the audio recorder recordings.

    More information: iphone 5s 32gb running 7.1.2 jailroken.

    Can anyone assist? Thanks in advance for your help.

    They both should be able to access /var/mobile/Documents/AudioRecorder. Are you sure you did try to navigate to that directory? What kind of error msg do you get?

    I tried to navigate to /var/mobile/Documents/AudioRecorder using ifile but I can only get as far as /var/mobile/Documents

    Can anyone assist me with accessing the directory which has the audiorecorder files?

    State of ~Aloha!~
    Location of App's documents

    Usually, apps have a "document" folder that stores data. You have the right path i.e. /var/mobile/Applications. But there is one more level of where you can reference the .../Documents folder.

    As an example, I have an app called Recorder Pro. The application path is preceded by a combination of letters and numbers. If you have iFile on your device, look under /var/mobile/Applications/FD919..../Documents. See example below:

    drwxr-xr-x 18 mobile mobile 11458 Dec 3 23:57 AudioRecorder.app/
    drwxr-xr-x 5 mobile mobile 170 Jan 5 21:41 Documents/
    drwxr-xr-x 6 mobile mobile 204 Jan 5 21:41 Library/
    drwxr-xr-x 2 mobile mobile 102 Dec 3 23:57 StoreKit/
    -rw-r--r-- 1 mobile mobile 173761 Dec 3 23:57 iTunesArtwork
    -rw-r--r-- 1 mobile mobile 2028 Dec 3 23:57 iTunesMetadata.plist
    drwxr-xr-x 2 mobile mobile 68 Dec 3 23:57 tmp/
    [root@iDevice]: /var/mobile/Applications/FD9195ED-51BB-4CC5-B285-6202F09FFE1A/

    Hope that helps.

    Regrettably, this only applies to apps installed via Xcode or downloaded from AppStore. Apps installed via a DEB file or from Cydia go to /Applications and in no way under /var/mobile/Applications/[UUID]/. Their write-to files aren't in their home either for many reasons but, generally, under /var/mobile. With the new(er) versions of the Limneos AudioRecorder tweak, under /var/mobile/Documents/AudioRecorder.


    Are you sure you are using the latest version of the Limneos app, and not an early version and/or cracked one and/or another call recorder?

    I am not using the latest version because with the latest version there is a warning about the all being recorded. In my country only one party has to know about a conversation being recorded i.e. ME so there is no way I would install that.

    If there were a viable alternative I would not even use this app because how dare the developer impose this warning upon users. Any form of legality are ultimately up to a Court to decide not this app developer. Then this idiot developer has the nerve to put in the description the other party's consent is necessary by law in MANY countries. Oh ok so this app should then only be used by users from those countries which requires the other party's consent. People from the MANY other countries that require only one person's consent need not user the app.

    Bookemdanno thanks for your reply ill try what you said and report back. I should point out that when I used ifile the ONLY header that shows me files is the inbox header

    Absolutely wrong. It has been removed some months ago from the app (prolly because of my JB tool removing the warning from the app right away, lol).

    So I upgraded audio recorder and tried to install your config. tweak from cydia and get sub process errors. How do I proceed?

    So now I use iExplorer on my laptop and do see the audio files BUT they calls are separated into speaker and mic so no one file has both parties present.

    Seriously is this for real :mad:

    As far as I know, the audio recorder app mixes the two files together, but they are indeed recorded separately. Download them and merge them using Audacity

    Certainly this has to be a SICK, SAD JOKE :eek::(:mad:

    This app is clearly incomplete. I'm going to buy super recorder and replace this half-assed excuse for a call recording app.

    In the meantime I still want to see if I can access the recordings as is i.e. as they are played within the app in a fulsome state.

    Still looking for help on this as I am truly puzzled as to why no file explorer apps seem to work on my iphone.

    Very grateful for all the responses so far guys :D

    You no longer need my config app to get rid of the voice warning.

    The dev has probably got fed up with my continuously cracking his voice warning protection and/or realized he can safely release a version without any voice warnings. As has been done by several other recorder devs on all kinds of smartphone OS'es.

    So, there's no voice warning in the new version(s), no need to use my tool any more.

    Yes so I realized. In any case I've done away with audio recorder and now use super recorder. Life is now much easier #

    The app was made by some guy who lives in Greece and programs in his spare time. You can't expect it to function like a high-budget app produced by a company. I personally have never had any problems with it and if you need to join two files together, it's not that hard. It takes maybe two minutes to pull the files, open them in Audacity and export. A small inconvenience for being able to do something you're not really supposed to be doing in the first place.

    It's people like you why we have so many piss poor apps masquerading as quality offerings. I do not care if development is done in his spare time, he CHARGES for the app so it should be held to a high quality standard. I do not know the laws of whatever country you are from but in my country and a HOST of others the recording of calls is encouraged, one party consent is also adequate.

    Please do us all a favour next time and think before you type.
