    I found a useful script that helps disable roaming charges from my carrier.

    The installation is frustrating and I often screw up and would highly appreciate it if someone could help me compile/make a toggle that I can easily install as a .deb package?

    Here's the file;

    The installation instructions;
    Prerequisites: (tip: google is your friend)
    1. You need to Jailbreak your iPhone 3G/3GS
    2. You need to enable SSH on your iPhone (OpenSSH in Cydia)
    3. You need a way to connect to your iPhone over wifi via SSH (i.e. Putty/WinSCP for Windows)
    4. You need to install BossPref from Cydia

    1. Copy:
    - the three files ending with .sh to /Applications/
    - Romophobic to /Applications/
    - com.paintoad.roaming.plist to /Library/LaunchDaemons

    2. Type the following commands in a terminal window (i.e Putty) one after the other – If no error message appears, it is sucessful:

    chown mobile:wheel /Applications/
    chmod 755 /Applications/
    chown mobile:wheel /Applications/
    chmod 755 /Applications/
    chown mobile:wheel /Applications/
    chmod 755 /Applications/
    chown mobile:wheel /Applications/
    chmod 666 /Applications/
    chmod 644 /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.paintoad.roaming.plist
    chown root:wheel /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.paintoad.roaming.plist
    launchctl load /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.paintoad.roaming.plist

    Once the phone has rebooted you're ready to go. Test by turn 3G off and access anything on the web.

    I've tried looking for help but to no avail. Hopefully someone out there can assist me. Thanks.
