Easily share Cycorder videos off jailbroken iPhones
Authored by: proffitt on Dec 10, '08 03:42:43PM

okay, made some progress, took a few steps back. I'm sure nobody is reading this anymore, but I'll ask for help anyway.

You'll never find the folder you want just by using terminal. give up on that idea unless you have a trick I couldn't figure out.

I used iphonebrowser and just searched the folders, then it was pretty easy to find the right one. I wrote down that annoyingly long string (yea I could probably figure out SSH or whatever, but that would be a whole new learning process)-- then I followed these instructions.
The key difference is that I want to use the app Files instead of AirSharing. I just like it better. I went a slight step further, and in iphonebrowser, I created a directory: /var/mobile/Applications/36BC86E3_rest_of_string/Documents/Files/CycorderVids/ just so that within Files I would have a unique folder called CycorderVids.

Then I followed the instructions. There were probably 5 different problems that occurred that I won't get into, but the bottom line is that I have it to the point that Files has the correct folder-- I manually moved the files using iphonebrowser into /var/mobile/Media/Videos so that they work within cycorder, and are functional and working in Files. However, now cycorder does not work.

When I try to record, cycorder minimizes itself and the icon shows the red "Rec", yet it does not ever seem to be actually recording. If I then reopen cycorder and click the record button again, it just repeats the minimization. If instead I hit the home button, cycorder closes, the icon goes to normal, but reopening the program proves no video was saved.

So it seems like I have a cycorder problem now. I went through a couple of rounds of uninstalling and reinstalling with no fixes. Basically the bottom line of it seems to be that as long as the symbolic link exists in the /var/mobile/Media/Videos folder (if I understand correctly "where" that symbolic link exists), then cycorder isn't functioning appropriately.

If I delete cycorder, and delete the Videos folder, and then reinstall cycorder, cycorder will work, but of course Files no longer sees this folder and I'm back where I started.

what's going on here?

one more note-- I was thinking perhaps the symlink was just broken somehow- i.e. I entered the wrong location, and it just seemed to work, but then cycorder when trying to write a file somehow ran into a glitch as it was trying to write to an imaginary location, but the fact that moving a file manually with iphonebrowser into the /var/mobile/Media/Videos folder makes it automatically also show up in .../CycorderVids/ proves that my symlink was appropriately created. so yea, more help please!
