    Hello guys,i was viewing some ipod forums yesterday and i found this plugin for Total Commander that enables us to view the iPhone Filesystem via USB..

    (Copied from the site)
    So far, it allows to

    * transfer files/directories between the iPod and the PC
    * move files/directories between the iPod and the PC
    * remove files/directories from the iPod
    * create directories on the iPod
    * PNG image conversion
    * binary PLIST file conversion

    Plus all the associated functionalities in TC (comparing files, searching directories, compressing/decompressing files, ...).

    This plug-in is based on iTunes API which allows to access the iPod file system by the USB, unfortunately this API isn't publicly documented yet. For the moment, some features are either not part of the API or were not discovered so far:

    * getting/setting attributes
    o permission flags
    o date of creation/modification/...
    o most file types: block/character device, soft links, ...
    * partition information: free/occupied space, file system type
    * sending commands that could be hooked on the device
    * setting an access password

    The most annoying being the first one: it is possible to transfer files to the iPod, but the file permission flags can't be set via the USB port. As a result, the executables need to be changed on an SSH session or they will not execute properly, using MobileFinder is also a possibility if you don't have a wireless connection.

    The data files will always have the same permissions, but this is currently not a concern since everything on an iPod is running with root credentials.


    i am a little surprised noone mentioned it before... the transfer speed is very good...i believe close to a usb hard disk... only drawback is that you can't set permissions(you can do it using Mobile Finder or Squid)..

    You can find it here

    Is there also a MAC version out? I have to change the permissions on some apps. Unfortunately haven`t installed Squid, SSH or Mobile Finder. Also the installer is not working. I would like to avoid downgrading again from 1.1.3.

    it worked for me when i was on 1.1.3 and also works now on 1.1.4 . Try to use the "Full Jailbreak Zibri Fix"...Or something like that.. I can't remember the name/source of it..

    I want to bump this because I can't count how many people don't know or use this.

    This is the best way to mess with your iphone hands down.

    This **** owns.

    I have had TotalCmdr on every computer I have owned for years...

    This is a great addition to an already great program!

    Hmmm I wonder what other plugins for TC are kicking around
