How to Install and Fix Stumbler Plus Crashes on an iPhone (Jailbroken)

Google seems to have a lot of older forum discussions about how to get Stumbler Plus to work on the iPhone. Most of these discussions revolve around an old upgrade that resulted in a crashing state for this app. However, I have found that new installations of Stumbler Plus from Cydia also crash, and the fixes described in a lot of the Google results don’t solve the problem.

Before you can do this, your phone must be jailbroken, and you need to have OpenSSH up and running. If you are using Windows, you will need a command line SSH client like Putty and pscp.exe. Remember to turn off OpenSSH on your iPhone after this is done (there is no need to leave the service running. Anyone can scan your phone and find the service running on your phone).

To install Stumbler Plus on a jailbroken iPhone, first install it from Cydia. The app will crash as soon as it is launched. Follow these instructions to get it working properly. If you are using Windows and have downloaded pscp.exe, use pscp.exe where these instructions say to use “scp” to copy the Stumbler package to your phone. Use putty to ssh into your phone to complete the rest of the steps from the Stumbler website. If you are not comfortable using putty, you can also use the MobileTerminal application from Cydia directly on your phone.
