Ibot is essentially Contra Public Fix 2 ported to the iPhone by setkeh with very minor changes to the scripts created by photofroggy

Development Issues

Due to some development issues with php and openssl for the iphone i will be putting the development of iBot on hold untill i can get a hold of Jay Freeman (Saurik) to resolve these issues so please bear with me im working as fast as i can to sort this out.

iPhone Requirements

Before you install IBot, check you have the following items:

1. Jailbroken iphone/ipod touch
2. OpenSSH installed
3. An sFTP client such as WinSCP
4. SSH client (e.g. PuTTY)
5. PHP (installed via Cydia)
6. Ibot


  1. Extract the provided ZIP file for ibot
  2. sftp into your iPhone (using WinSCP) and and navigate your way to the "/" directory
  3. Create a directory for the bot. To do this with WinSCP, right-click and make a new directory called ibot
  4. Copy all the files from the extracted .zip file into your new directory
  5. Find the file called "RUN-Contra.command", right-click on it and go to properties
  6. Set the permissions for the file to 0777 (n.b. 0775 will NOT work).
  7. Copy the file "ibotrun" to /usr/bin/
  8. Exit your sFTP client (e.g. WinSCP)
  9. Launch PuTTY and login to you iPhone
  10. Type in "ibotrun", then press enter
  11. Follow the instructions given onscreen

To Do's

Fix PHP and OpenSSL for iPhone

Add icon to springboard
Add a GUI interface
Make ports of other open source bots to satisfy personal preference :P


photofroggy - For Developing Contra
plaguethenet - For Helping With the bin file to run from anywhere in the terminal
tharglet - For keeping my horrible spelling under control here on the wiki
The port is the work of setkeh with the help of the above people
This bot is Contra with a few modifications to make it compatible with the iPhone.
