How to edit iPhone/iPad hosts file?

For this method, you need to jailbreak your iPhone/iPad. Once jailbroken => launch Cydia => search for iFile and install it.

Once install, start iFile.

When you first start iFile, you are placed in the /var/mobile directory. The hosts file is located in /etc/hosts so in order to edit it, you need to navigate to the /etc directory.

To do that, you click on “var” under your phone’s signal bar => next click on “/”

Now scroll up, find “etc” and click on it.

Find the file “hosts” and click on it => then click on Text Viewer.

Now click on “Edit” (below your signal bar) and start editing.

Have fun.

How to sync apps from iphone to computer?

I finally bought an iPhone 4S, yay!!! I bought a few apps then every time when I try to sync apps to my Mac, iTunes pops up saying it wants to delete my apps.

It took me a while but I finally figured out how to sync my apps to my Mac:

In iTunes => under Devices => right click on my iPhone and click on “Transfer Purchases from”.

iTunes would start copying the apps to my Mac.

Once done, I can then tick on “Sync Apps” without a problem.
