    Hello Benxine,

    I already have this problem. I have the com.ghughes.wifisync.root.plist in the folder preferences, not in launch daemons. I dismount the folder WI-FI Sync. I can throw it in the trash as often as I like, after a restart, after opening Itunes, the com.ghughes.wifisync.root.plist, is again in the prferences and the WIFI-Sync is back, too.

    So have you an idea what is wrong on my computer?

    Greetings, Andy

    Hi.  Don't panic:). You're probably looking in the wrong directory.  If you open your finder, you should have an option to see the contents of your computer's hard drive. Your hard drive may be named anything, but it will contain a folder called library.  Inside of this should be the launch daemons file.  Your hard drive may have many different folders called Library. That is why it is important that you find the right one; under your hard drive contents.

    Good luck and let me know if this helps.  P.A.L

    In this folder callled Library, i found Application Support/Wi-Fi Sync, but Launch Daemons is not. I tried to find "com.ghughes.wifisync.root.plist" with Spotlight, but it doesn't exist.! What should I do..? (


    Sorry, I'm Vietnamese, so my English so bad.

    I found a fix that worked for me after failing with all the others:

    IF your computer has an old cydia app called Wi-Fi Sync (you'll recognize it on your toolbar as a black silhouette of an iphone that NEVER goes away), then this is probably your main culprit.  Simple fix.


    1. Goto your hard drive in the finder

    2. Goto Library

    3. Goto Launch Daemons

    4. Throw this in the trash:  com.ghughes.wifisync.root.plist

    5. Goto Library

    6. Goto Application Support

    7. Throw this in the trash:  Wi-Fi Sync (it's an entire folder).

    8. Restart.

    9. Thank me.


    Peace and Love, Peace and LOVE!

    Thanks much, Benxine - your clear instructions helped me solve this issue on my iPhone 5. I wonder why the problem with an app installed a couple years ago started - but I'm very grateful you figured it out and posted instructions that were so easy to follow and effective. Thanks again.
