    Hi guys,

    Is there a file management/browser app that allows you to browse the entire drive - not just a small subset like most allow (the home directory?)

    Thanks guys,
    Daniel

    The trouble is apple doesn't make it easy by naming the folders and contents in any recognisable fashion.....

    That's partly true, but if you SSH in you're able to access the standard unix folder structure which at least gives you a semblance of organisation and control, even if individual files aren't always named in easily accessible ways.

    "IPhone Explorer" only show's the entire content If the device Is jailbroken

    If jailbroken:
    U have acess to the entire iDevice, suports drag'n drop. (REAL QUICK Transfer speed)
    Speeds up installation process, just to drag the ipa/deb file into your idevice and install It from there rather the using SSH's slow tranfser speed.

    Use It with care, u can really mess up your iDevice moving around things.

    But the main question was If there was a APP doing this!

    All my iDevice's are jailbroken and Im using "iFile" to browse the entire content.
