Oct 11, 2008 Update: How to enjoy the updated version 2.0.3-5 by reversing changes made in this post:

  1. Launch your favorite sFTP client and navigate to /etc/netatalk/.
  2. Download this zip, and upload & overwrite the “AppleVolumes.default” file in /etc/netatalk/.
  3. Delete the “afpd.conf” file from /etc/netatalk/.
  4. Reboot your device.
  5. Important: DO NOT use your sFTP client to delete the symbolic file “root”. I repeat, DO NOT use your sFTP client to delete the symbolic file “root”. If you do that, the content of your entire device will be deleted! You’ll have to “Option+Restore” your device after that. Leave the file alone!
  6. To connect as “root”, toggle the “Disconnect” button (as seen in the below pic) and type “root” and “alpine” when prompted.

This following instructions for Netatalk 2.0.3-4 is obsolete; do not follow.
(Scroll down for AFP BossPrefs Toggle.)

This is a follow-up on my previous entry about enabling AFP Root Access by hanXa and how I modify hanXa’s instructions so my AFPd (Netatalk 2.0.3-4) behaves like it did in AFPd 1.x. It details, step-by-step, all the how-tos in one post.

  1. Needless to say, you must install Netatalk via Cydia. You can find it under the “Networking” section.
  2. Download this zip, and use your favorite sFTP client to upload its contents (“AppleVolumes.default” & “afpd.conf”) into /etc/netatalk/. When prompted, you will allow overwriting the existing files.
  3. Launch your OS X’s Terminal.app (it’s in your /Applications/Utilities/ folder) and issue the following command:

    ssh -l root 192.168.123.88
