Phone Specs: iPhone 4s, ios 8.4

Is it just me or did the iFile not able to see the folder inside application?

When you open the iFile, the home page, the Application folder always seem to have your phone application files inside. Now there isn't any. A little inconvience that I can't move my backup save back to my application.

Works fine for me. Did you get it from the default repo?

I have just tried that. It seem the same like iFile. I think ios 8.4 jailbreak have a slight difference than the ios 7.0.4 that I used to have.

If you came from 7.0.4 then please note the following: the path to the applications and to the application-data was changed by apple when introducing IOS 8.x.x. Since then especially iFile has problems. It was adjusted for the installed apps but not for the app-data paths. This is where (at least currently) Filza is ahrad of iFile.

Everything that used to be in /var/mobile/application is now found in 2 different locations:

/var/mobile/Containers/Bundle/Application for the installed apps and

/var/mobile/Containers/Data/Application for the apps data.

You need to consider this when searching information
