The only catch is that you need a special package installed on your jailbroken device before you’re given access to the filesystem. This package, Apple File Conduit, better known as AFC2, allows you to do just that.
The TaiG jailbreak for iOS 8.3 doesn’t automatically add AFC2 support to your jailbroken device, but it’s easy to add it after your jailbreak. Just follow this simple tutorial, and you’ll be browsing your root filesystem on your Mac or PC in no time.
Step 1: Open Cydia
Step 2: Tap Sources → Edit → Add
Step 3: Type: apt.taig.com and tap Add Source
Step 4: Tap the TaiG source → All Packages
Step 5: Tap TaiG AFC2, install and reboot
Step 6: Connect your device to your computer and use a tool like iExplore or iFunbox to browse the root filesystem
That’s all there is to it. As you can see from the screenshot above, I now have root access to my iPhone’s filesystem from the comforts of my Mac’s desktop.
Have you installed AFC2 yet?
