This is very "noob" friendly and only require two things:
1.) Jailbroken iPhone
2.) Open-ssh installed on iPhone
If you use linux than you know how handy sshfs is, but if your on Windows and want to move files around as if the iPod was a normal drive you could open in "My Computer" than you will need this instructable. And yes, you can have root access to the device!
You will need these three files:
Dokan SSHFS 0.6 (updates)
Dokan SSHFS 0.2 (The main program)
Dokan Library 0.6 (The drivers and such that make it all work)
All three files can be located here
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Installing the Three Files
(Don't forget to run all of these as ADMINISTRATOR)
First install the library
Now install the Program (0.2)
Now just apply the updates(manually). Copy the files from (0.6) and overwrite the files in
C:\Program Files (x86)\Dokan\DokanSSHFS
Step 2: Setup the IDevice
Skip this step if you already have SSH on your iPhone and know how to use it...
Install open ssh (from CYDIA app on the startupscreen)
the default password for root is
change this by sshing into the device via terminal app or putty by loging in as root and password alpine
change by typing:
and enter new password...
Step 3: Mount the IDevice on Windows Via Wifi and Ssh With Dokan
Open Dokan (as administrator) from the strat menu, or however you want to start the program...
In "host" you would type your ipod name or ip address
In "user" you would tyoe the user name (I just use root)
In "Server Root" just leave it as as forward slash / (for root)
Now just specify which drive letter you want to be and thats all!
Now you can copy and paste anything to you iPhone as if is connected to windows, enjoy!
There are two thins that very mildy annoying though:
-It shows the wrong capacity (not a big deal)
-it always mounts as "Dokan" as the drive name
But hey its better than using a sftp client all of the time right?
