    Hey there people,

    I'm sorry if this is the wrong section but I had no idea where else to post it, anyway $10 paypal for the one who can help me out I'm utterly desperate!

    So here's the thing: I went into iFile and changed the 'fstab' file and now it can't boot, anymore, it's stuck in a loop. it shows the Apple logo for 10 seconds and then restarts.
    The file is 'fstab', and it's in /private/etc. I've already tried TinyUmbrella to kick it out of recovery but it doesn't work.

    The file first looked like this:



    /dev/disk0s1 / hfs rw 0 1

    /dev/disk0s2 /private/var hfs rw 0
    2

    And I changed that to: su

    alpine

    sysctl -w
    hw.cpufrequency_max=600000000

    sysctl -w hw.cpufrequency=600000000

    sysctl -w
    hw.cpufrequency_min=475000000

    /dev/disk0s1 / hfs rw 0 1

    /dev/disk0s2 /private/var hfs rw 0
    2



    My question: How do I SSH into the iPhone and change it back? It's in DFU/recovery mode and i'm really really desperate, I have no backup because I just got a new pc. Firmware 5.0 & please no paid software.

    Thanks!!!

    Cyberduck has gotten me into my device in a boot loop before. I'm not sure if it will get you in with recovery/dfu mode but give it a go if you'd like. You of course will have to know your wifi ip address to connect your phone to your computer, hopefully your phone is connected to the same wifi network.

    I'll give it a try, thanks!

    What am I supposed to do in redsn0w exactly? I tried the 'just boot' option and it said that I have an unrecognized build..

    Turns out I don't have OpenSSH on my iPhone, is it still possible?

    Hi, you could try and make a NO_ERASE_IPSW and restore with it. Then do an iTunes right click backup and a normal fresh restore.

    Ah no, sorry Cyberduck won't work without OpenSSH. Cyberduck is the only client I've tried of all the rest that actually can get me into my phone regardless of what state my phone has ever been in. I would say give iFunBox a try since you can't use Cyberduck but I don't know how well that'll go.

    If all of this fails, you're probably going to be stuck restoring.

    I'll give it a try, thanks!

    Edit: If you've got a Mac you could try and see I JuicePhone will recognize your device and extract your data so you won't lose anything.

    Hi, this probably won't work but it's worth trying...
    Press the home and power buttons until you have powered the phone off. Then power back on while keeping the volume + button held in.
