    Default top command giving Error opening terminal: xterm-256color
    I've just jailbroken my iPhone 4S with 7.0.4 and installed top and ssh from Cydia. However when I SSH to the phone and try to run top I get the error:

    Code:
    ~ root# top
    Error opening terminal: xterm-256color.
    I've tried looking around for the xterm command but only found info in: /usr/share/terminfo/x/xterm

    Any idea of what I need to get this running? Other commands like ps work fine when I install their packages.

    Thanks!

    AFAIK, this is a bug within iOS 7 (and/or the top process). Probably something with the implementation/omission of x11...

    My best guess is Top Men are aware of the bug, and will get around to patching it in a manner relative to its importance (read: it'll be a while before it'll be patched, but it'll probably be patched).
