Is there a way to SSH or otherwise view an iPhone's files without jailbreaking it?

I have an app on my iPhone that no longer works (it loads to splash screen then quits), but I have some files on there. Is there any way for me to pull these files off through FTP/SSH/Finder (I don't want to go through a backup) from the phone without jailbreaking it?

"You can't use SSH, no. That does require jailbreaking, and RipDev's InstallerApp as mentioned in nik's answer does jailbreak your phone, no matter what it says.

This tool (http://code.google.com/p/iphonebrowser/ ) will let you browse the iphone's file system, though if your phone is not jailbroken, it will only really let you read things off it."

"There is the InstallerApp path from RipDev

InstallerApp is a native Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows application that allows you easily download applications from Installer and Cydia directly onto your computer, and install them to the iPhone connected with USB cable.

Supported on Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows.
But,

InstallerApp is commercial software. One license costs US $7."
