    My iphone is not able to connect to wifi.
    The reason?
    Simply put: the iphone fell and stopped working. 100 dollars later, it was alive again. But the internet never came back.

    I have my iPhone jailbroken on 2.2 and unlocked. (It is a first gen iphone) but alas! I am not able to download cool apps from cydia and installer.

    So, I though of using total commander. But the apps I put in there always crash, so I know I have to change permissions.

    Please, con someone help me out?
    Basically what I need is a program or something that will let me go inside my iPhone via USB BUT that lets me change permissions. (Something Total Commander can't do).

    Also, please note that I can't SSH because, to begin with, the iPhone can't use wifi. And I KNOW there are ways to SHH to the iPhone WITHOUT Wifi,but I need to have OpenSHH installed.... and I can't install it.

    And even if I did it through TC, the permissions would not be set right.


    Thanks in advance for all of your help!

    well if you tried restoring via DFU and still didn't work, then it's prolly because of that fall.
    And if you got it fixed from apple for $100 I suggest you bring it back to them and tell them that they never fixed the wi-fi.

    The thing is, my iPhone needs to be jailbroken, it is a first gen and I live in Mexico.

    Also, I didn't take it to apple for fixing it, but with a guy my dad knew that is good with machines and stuff.

    He told my dad that he tried everything to restore the wifi to no avail.

    you could use winscp to upload apps and install them manually, however any internet dependent app won't work obviously without some sort of internet connectivity. The other challenge is finding them to download...

    Hey! Thanks for the replies. I already uploaded some apps to the iphone via Total Commander, but I can't change the properties and all of the apps crash as soon as I try to open them...

    Any ideas?

    Also, I am not a guy. I am a girl
