    I have an Iphone 3G that the screen went white last night. The phone still functions because I can hear people calling but I cant swipe it to pick up, and I installed activator so Im able to play music by messing with the volume buttons.

    I want to control the iphone using veency but my wifi is turned off. for the first time, I turned off wifi last night to save battery... anyways, I cant find a way to turn it on.

    Is there a way i can SSH into the phone... rephrase that... i also turned off ssh last night but i'm able to use iphonebrowser to get in. is it possible to turn on wifi through iphonebrowser? maybe install an app that will force the iphone to turn on wifi by placing the deb in cydia's autoinstall folder?

    I just need to vnc in it and I'm good until i replace the screen. I'll be able to find the IP address by using solarwinds IP tracker.

    Any help is appreciated!!!1!!

    do you have opened ssh installed already on the phone? If not that i dont think you can. If you do just root ssh into the phone go to settings and switch it on

    I believe you can tether it but it's easier on the network
