    It sounds like you need to change that rights of the binaries that you added. Connect with ssh and go into your /bin folder and say "chmod 755 *" that will change them to allow you to execute them.

    I'm seeing something very strange with the latest version of Terminal available from googlecode.
    I can only type 3 characters then a newline is forced and it tries to run my 3 letter command.
    I can't type more than 3 characters no matter what.

    I reverted back to an earlier version of Terminal which did not help so I think something else is broke.

    Anyone have any ideas???

    If you want too put custom images onto your phone from a Windows computer its MUCH easier to use WInSCP. Its a free download (Google for it) and then you access the iPhone's file system via wifi. You can get the iPhone wifi IP address from Settings, SBSettings, or a number of other apps. Say your wifi IP is 192.168.1.7, That is your "Host Name" for WinSCP. User name is "root" without the quotes. and Password is "alpine" again without the quotes. Then click "Login". The first login takes a long time- be patient. Sometimes it times out and you have to exit WinSCP and then open it again and try again. Once you login, you will see your iPhone files on the right side and your desktop files on the left side. Files can be moved back and forth between iPhone and PC by highlighting the file and pressing the F5 key.

    Oh, for WinSCP to work you must have OpenSSH from Cydia installed on your iPhone.

    All mobile terminal did for me was when i was trying to add a note in the terminal to play a movie from piratebay, it SLOWED down my iphone and LAGGED so much! I had this problem before with my sisters iphone and my ipod touch! I don't think it's worth having mobile terminal, dtunes, and the free movies/music. Its all sites where you can go on megavids or whatever and watch them from your computer and just download music from limewire or something. I'm just frustrated and fed up with how every time I open up mobile terminal, it seems like it crashed my iphone/ipod touch or it lags so much that it takes nearly a minute for each action to occur...such as pressing an app icon to get into your mail or something. Can someone help with this issue? Anyone else has this issue?
