StumblerPlus doesn't work on firmware 3.0 (iPhoneOS 3.0), because Apple80211.framework was gone. I have no solution of this problem yet. (written on 22th June, 2009) StumblerPlus-1.2rev2.tar.gz is available on 24th June, 2009. This version was built on SDK 3.0 and this works only on iPhoneOS 3.0. If you want to use this version, you download and you have to extract this in your iPhone / iPod touch.

How to install StumblerPlus-1.2

First, you copy StumblerPlus-1.2rev2.tar.gz into your iPhone.

  $ scp StumblerPlus-1.2rev2.tar.gz root@<your-iPhone-IPaddress>:/tmp/

Next, you login your iPhone via ssh.

  $ ssh -l root <your-iPhone-IPaddress>

Last, you extract tar archive after you changed current working directory to
"/Applications", not "/var/root/Applications".

  # cd /Applications
  # mv
  # tar zxf /tmp/StumblerPlus-1.2rev2.tar.gz
  # exit

How to install StumblerPlus-1.2 (another way)

You should use MobileTerminal in Cydia instead of using SSH. First of all, you must install MobileTerminal and wget from Cydia. The procedure is below.

First, you launch MobileTerminal app.

Next, you run the following commands.

  # cd /tmp

  # wget

  # cd /Applications

  # mv

  # gunzip -dc /tmp/StumblerPlus-1.2rev2.tar.gz | tar xpf -

Last, you stop MobileTerminal.

And you will be available new StumblerPlus!

Temporary FAQ

Recently I received the same problem that StumblerPlus crashes on launching. The solution of the problem is that you should change the owner from 'root' to 'mobile' in your '/var/mobile/Documents' directory if the owner is 'root'. The MobileFinder in Cydia will be very useful for you to change the owner. I think a certain application changes the owner/permission of the directory.
