    Hello,

    New on this forum and this is my first post...

    Sorry if this information is already on there somewhere, but i tried to find and couldn't ..

    Here goes..
    I am looking for an App for my Jailbroken iPad1 , which i can use to browser the entire file system on the iPad. (like how it appears when you SSH to the iPad from your PC).

    So , is there an app like this - free or paid whichever. Just want the freedom to transfer files from one folder to another on the iPad..

    Hoping to get some help soon!

    Thanks.,

    I have moved your post to the Hacking section, where I think it will receive better attention.

    Just in case no one else responds, I believe there is an app called 'iFile', available from the Cydia app store, that will do what you want. I am not a JB person myself, so I hope that someone else more knowledgeable than me can respond.

    Tim

    Tim was bang on the money, even though he is not a jailbreaker! Good effort Tim :)

    There really is only one app you should consider and that is iFile. You won't be disappointed. It is absolutely the essential jailbreak app if you want to manage your files on the device!

    Thanks for your quick replies guys!

    I already have iFile, although i can only see 4 folders (Document/movie/music/pictures)... Is there any way i can see root folders and everything..

    I may be missing something very obvious here, so apologies in advance !!

    Does your screen not look like this? Click on Disk and you get to the root of the FS?

    OH GOD!!

    I think i have the wrong app. I got this app called 'iFile' , ... but now it seems this is not the right one.
    Now i am downloading the iFile from Cydia, which i believe is what you are talking about.!

    Yes, sorry. It must be the Cydia app! LOL. Have fun with it when you get it!

    Another question related to iFile (and the file system on the iPad)...
    If i want to find a file using the normal search of the iPad (swiping right) , which folder can i add 'a file' (random file, photo, mp3, etc) so that this search feature finds the file. Is there any way ?

    Hope i m clear in my query..

    Spotlight doesn't search anywhere but your apps, music synced from or downloaded from iTunes, pics, and movies, and inside like the contacts app. Doesn't allow filesystem searching. But ifile does. Tap on "disk" on the navagaion pane, the on the right swipe your finger down and the search bar will appear.
