MobileFinder is a filesystem navigator and launcher for use with your iPhone.

You can use MobileFinder to navigate your system files, launch applications, send files by email, synchronize desktop via ssh and rsync, set file permissions, copy/move/delete files, create files and more. You will find it to be very useful. Just like Finder in OS X. It was created by matt.stoker. Make sure to thank him.

This will work on 1.1.3 and higher iPhones. To follow this tutorial make sure you have BSD Subsystem installed and have added the iClarified Source to Installer.

NOTES**: We will do a tutorial on how to use MobileFinder to sync soon. We added MobileFinder on our installer source so the install procedure could be modified to support 1.1.3 and 1.1.4.

THANKS**: Of course thanks to matt.stoker and the other project members: kdbdallas and LSwank. You can view the googlecode page: here

Great app.. I was looking for a way to send attachments for a while.. Thank you so much.. One request if you please.. The sync function is very poorly documented.. Can you give a tutorial on how to use this on a Vista machine? I\'m using Air Sharing right now but using a single app would be much easier. Thanks in advance..

main script execution failed

Hiya I have a problem with the mobilefinder application, too. I tried to install it, but it gave me a scrip execution failed error, but it installed somehow. I can see the icon and it works. The only thing that doesn\'t work is the execution of files, eg. opening pictures from that application. Anyways, I would like to uninstall it and had a look under installer - uninstall, but the mobilefinder is not there. How can I safely uninstall this application? I also have Cydia installed. I tried to search the net for an answer, but there is nothing helpful. Please help. Thanks so much. Cheers Stef

I too, have cydia installed, and the instalation of this package fails with a main script execution failed, but the app itself gets installed. what i do is isntall the default finder and then this one, at least some of the changes get aplied i think

i couldn`t of helped notice that you use cydia. i can`t, for the life of me, figure out why it doesn`t show categories like in installer. all it shows is \"all packages\" and that`s it, in that category there`s nothing. can anyone help? i`ll buy a beer :D
