    This is a simple step-by-step guide on how to make Stumbler Plus work on firmware 3.0

    Step 1) Download the current version of Stumbler Plus from Cydia. *It will crash when you try to open it, but we're going to fix that


    Step 2) Download this file;
    http://www.iphone.mysticwall.com/download/StumblerPlus-1.2rev2.tar.gz

    Download here as a .zip;
    http://www.sendspace.com/file/0v7321


    Step 3) Copy StumblerPlus-1.2rev2.tar.gz into your iPhone to "/tmp"

    Step 4) Next, you login your iPhone via ssh ($ ssh -l root <your-iPhone-IPaddress>) or Mobile Terminal if you like doing everything off your iPod, like me (;


    Step 5) Last, you'll extract tar archive after you changed current working directory to "/Applications", not "/var/root/Applications". To Navigate to "/Applications" enter the command "cd /Applications" and hit return.


    Step 6) Once you are in "/Applications", in a terminal (or MobileTerminal on your iPod) type the following commands:

    # mv StumblerPlus.app StumblerPlus.app.BAK
    # tar zxf /tmp/StumblerPlus-1.2rev2.tar.gz
    # exit



    Here is a screenshot of the commands you will enter into terminal:

    Here's proof it works, I guess the only way to tell I'm on 3.0 is the percent next to the battery;

    You can now use Stumbler Plus,
    enjoy (;

    You can download it if you have Safari Download manager bu I'll upload it with the iShare app from Cydia. I'll put it in 5 minutes.

    Its been atleast four months now and they still haven't fixed this? Why can't it be updated on Icy/Cydia so I can just push "update" and have it work rather then this procedure?

    Completely irrelevant, but could you tell me the font that you're using as a system font, LeanPocketTouch? I like it.
