Cydia App: USB Drive – Turn Your iPhone, iPod Touch Into A USB Mass Storage Device

I’m the type always using a mini USB stick to transfer pictures, word docs and files. Only problem I have, I don’t always carry my USB stick. The device with me at all times, is my iPhone. But, it didn’t work like a USB stick, until now.

USB Drive is an application from Cydia, which allows you to turn your iPhone into a USB mass storage device.

How to install:

*Your iPhone or iPod Touch must be jailbroken before continuing*

1. Launch Cydia, search for USB Drive, install.
2. Launch USB Drive app
3. Select the USB Mode Type. (Click Help to learn the differences)
4. Click on Create Disk…
5. Choose a name and size for your drive, push Create.
6. Once finished creating, you will see the drive name and size created.
7. Push Home button. *I recommend restart/reboot your device*
8. Connect USB cable
9. Enjoy your new USB Drive!

USB Drive is available in Cydia from the following repo:

    To find it on Cydia, you need to add the source

    start in recovery mode and restore.. press home + power until it turns of and hold down home until itunes pops up with the message: “iTunes detected a device in need of recovery” or something like that

    Ive installed it and its working great, the only problem is that it does something to the itunes.
    After i installed it , i tried to connect the iphone to cydia but there wasnt any recognition.
    I tried couple of Pc’s but they all failed to recognized the iphone.
    Finally i thought it might bebecause of this app, i remove it and walla, iphone was recognized.
    I tried to connect the iphone in both mode, one that there was a partition and one that there werent.

    Anyone else had this problem , what did you do ?

  • Fibola2000

    There is a mistake above, i ment i tried to connect iphobe to itunes not for cydia

  • Aaron

    Ya you can. Shut off your iPod, connect an end to your iPod but not the computer. Hold the home button and plug the iPod into your computer while continuing to hold the home button. And voila your apple device is on restore mode

  • Kennymoorman2007

    works on 2g 2gmc 3g and 1g but not 4g

  • Vitug23

    What font is that? I use to have it when i was jailbroken before but now i cant find it :(

  • memy02

    after a lot of work I finally got it to work but it is slow as balls. It doesn’t matter what computer I use the transfer rate is slower then dial up.

  • chriisspy

    After installing it, shortly after my iphone would not reboot.
    now i cannot restore it and i get itunes error 1600. i think this is realted to USB drive… any ideas?

  • Gtowndip

    im currently using this on my iphone 4 ios 5.1.1 it only works as drive you cant see it in itunes. in order to see it in itunes switch to default (reboot). if you have problems deleting the drive go into ifile varvolumes and delete it from there this is the only way to get your disk space back

  • yasir
