Hi all,

I, along with nzbullet, have been floating around here for a little while now, helping people with various fixes to get their iPhones running properly on the Vodafone NZ network.

Well, to simplify things, I have just created an Installer repository which will enable you to install our fixes directly onto your phones via Installer (which all good jail-broken phones should have :)).

Just go to http://www.kiwi-ise.co.nz/ and it has all the details of how to add our repository to your phone. It includes most of the fixes we discussed and supplied solutions for in this thread.

Hope this helps a few people out there Wink

Depending on interest, we will continue to develop more fixes and mods specifically for the Vodafone NZ iPhone user.

I think he was referring to the fact that by the end of the year you can choos which WCDMA network you want to use - not necesarilly that Telecom New Zealand is the company bringing the iPhone to the country.

Yep - realise these are rumours. I have updated my post to make it clearer what I meant Smile

Considering the impact of the iPhone on the cell phone market, it would be very interesting to see what would happen ~if~ Telecom did get the iPhone contract for NZ... but that is probably a topic for another thread Tongue out

Thanks guys this is a great initiative,. I have had problems trying to SSH into my iPhone since upgrading to 1.1.3 using ziphone 2.2, and to compound problems i cannot uninstall OpenSSH because I get the old "Script Execution Failed" error, so end up going around in circles.... any hints on what to do now.  For the meantime I used your installer source to sort out my callerid etc.!! cheers keep up the good work.

The Installer source is http://i.kiwi-ise.co.nz/ - and it includes most of the fixes we discussed and supplied solutions for in this thread.


Great work! Can you specify exactly which fixes you included in this? Is it only the important ones, such as caller id, and number format?

The installer source for "Kiwi-ise version 0.5" as below:
  • Caller ID
    Incoming calls & text messages are recoginised when number exists in Contact Book.
  • Ph# Formatting
    Formats phone number entries, number when dilaing out and unrecognised incoming numbers.
  • Vodafone NZ Carrier Bundle (with optional carrier logo)
    This bundle provides:
    • Adds *optional* Vodafone carrier logo in status bar (you can choose whether to install this)
    • New menu for Vodafone NZ related services
    • Removes annoying Call Forwarding Active message
There is also the NZ Keyboard for (1.1.3 only) and the maps icon.

We will be adding all of them and more

OK what am I doing wrong, having entered the source and refreshed I can't see any of the apps. I have triple checked the URL but no joy.

Just check that you have added the trailing slash at the end and that it hasn't auto changed any of the letters so they are in caps, it should look exactly like this:

http://i.kiwi-ise.co.nz/

Once you have added it and refreshed go to the install section and look for a folder called "Get Kiwi-ised". If it is not there exit installer, go back in and do another refresh.

I have just removed it and re-added it so it is definetly working.

downhill: ...i cannot uninstall OpenSSH because I get the old "Script Execution Failed" error, so end up going around in circles.... any hints on what to do now.


Hey downhill - glad to hear we've helped :)

To fix your OpenSSH issue you'll need to fool Installer into thinking it's not there. You will need access to your phone so will probably want to use iPhoneBrowser or such-like... I have not used it myself, I have only used an SFTP client, so can't give you the exact instruction, but the file you need to edit (very carefully) is this one:

/private/var/mobile/Library/Installer/LocalPackages.plist

Hopefully you are reasonsably comfortable with tag based files like XML as you need to remove the "<dict>" entry for it.

Search for this in the file:

<dict>
        <key>bundleIdentifier</key>
        <string>org.smxy.iphone-apps.OpenSSH</string> ...


Once you find it, rather than delete the whole thing (you can do that if you completely understand tags) look for "<key>uninstall</key>". It should look something like this:


            <key>uninstall</key>
            <array>
                <array>
                    <string>Exec</string>
                    <string>/bin/launchctl unload /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.openssh.sshd.plist</string>
                </array>
                <array>
                    <string>RemovePath</string>
                    <string>/etc/ssh_config</string>
                    <string>/etc/sshd_config</string>
                    <string>/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.openssh.sshd.plist</string>
                    <string>/usr/bin/scp</string>
                    <string>/usr/bin/sftp</string>
                    <string>/usr/bin/ssh</string>
                    <string>/usr/bin/ssh-add</string>
                    <string>/usr/bin/ssh-agent</string>
                    <string>/usr/bin/ssh-keygen</string>
                    <string>/usr/bin/ssh-keyscan</string>
                    <string>/usr/libexec/sftp-server</string>
                    <string>/usr/libexec/ssh-keysign</string>
                    <string>/usr/libexec/ssh-rand-helper</string>
                    <string>/usr/libexec/sshd-keygen-wrapper</string>
                    <string>/usr/sbin/sshd</string>
                </array>
                <array>
                    <string>RemovePath</string>
                    <string>/etc/ssh_host_key</string>
                    <string>/etc/ssh_host_key.pub</string>
                    <string>/etc/ssh_host_rsa_key</string>
                    <string>/etc/ssh_host_rsa_key.pub</string>
                    <string>/etc/ssh_host_dsa_key</string>
                    <string>/etc/ssh_host_dsa_key.pub</string>
                </array>
            </array>



Change it so it looks like this:


            <key>uninstall</key>
            <array>
            </array>


Then open Installer on your iPhone and Uninstall OpenSSH. What this effectively does is it means that Installer will actaully do "nothing" to uninstall so there will be no error. Installer will then remove that from it's settings and you should then be able to re-install OpenSSH.

Keen to hear how you get on with this! :)


Just one other thing - you will need to install the iBrickr/ziPhone fix from Installer so that you can use iPhoneBrowser (or iBrickr) to access your phone. ziPhone does not install the AFC2 support required for these apps to access your phone.
