    I mentioned this issue in a previous post, but this thread has gotten a bit long so I forgive you for not noticing! =)

    If you launch Pericam from Terminal, & start interval shooting from the phone, and then Control-C to end the app, Pericam will continue to take pictures forever, EVEN AFTER REBOOTING THE PHONE!

    It runs a cron job that can't be terminated by the mobile user, so to stop it, you'll need to launch the app from Terminal again (as root), and toggle the interval button on the phone to stop it. Then exit Terminal with Control-C and all should be right with the world.

    I'm sure I've followed every step correctly, but I still get "can't start interval shooting" error.

    When running from terminal it never gets past...

    # /Applications/Pericam.app/Pericam
    rmdir: /var/root/Media/DCIM/100APPLE/PERICAM/*: No such file or directory
    picSnap is /var/root/bin/picSnap
    reduceJPEG is /usr/bin/reduceJPEG
    sh: crontab: command not found
    ... and every time I click on Start Interval Shooting the terminal shows 2 more lines of 'sh: crontab: command not found' and the iPhone displays the "can't start interval shooting" error.

    Any ideas?...



    Further to this... I couldn't find a 'crontab' file in any of the normal 'path' folders so I created an empty file named 'crontab', uploaded it to /usr/bin/ & gave it 777 permissions.

    Now when I run Pericam from the terminal it hangs at...

    # /Applications/Pericam.app/Pericam
    rmdir: /var/root/Media/DCIM/100APPLE/PERICAM/*: No such file or directory
    picSnap is /var/root/bin/picSnap
    reduceJPEG is /usr/bin/reduceJPEG
    ... note the 'crontab' command is no longer 'not found' but clicking on 'Start Interval Shooting' results in nothing - no further terminal messages and no iPhone error message.

    Are you sure you did this step?:

    chmod +s /Applications/Pericam.app/Pericam

    Yes - and a number of times including after uninstalling and reinstalling Pericam. Just to verify, Pericam now has 6777 permissions.

    My iPhone is 1.0.2 restored to 1.1.4 & j|a|u via ZiPhone with Cydia/Telesphoreo in place of BSD Subsystem. I'm adept at getting other apps to work on 1.1.4, creating symlinks, etc... Just stumped on this one!

    Heh, different firmware, different jailbreak method, and a different BSD Subsystem are pretty major differences!
    I can't offer much advice except that I suspect your BSD Subsystem replacement. You might check to see if these paths exist:

    /var/cron/tabs/
    /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.cron.plist

    As we're all discovering the hard way, playing with the BSD Subsystem without the SDK is a bit like driving on a mountain road blindfolded.

    Thanks, I suspect you might be right. Neither of those paths/files exist.

    I've taken it up on the Cydia thread and awaiting a reply.

    Cydia/Telesphoreo is supposed to be a robust 'better' replacement for BSD Subsystem, but perhaps the CRON function has been overlooked.


    ===========================
    UPDATE !
    ===========================


    SUCCESS!!!

    I found a downloadable zip of BSD Subsystem and noticed that all of the following existed in BSD but not in my clean Cydia install...
    /var/cron/tabs/
    /var/cron/tabs/root
    /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.cron.plist
    /usr/bin/crontab
    Once I had created/uploaded these onto the iPhone, Pericam started working correctly!

    As an added bonus, Showtime finally started saving videos!

    YAY!

    While not the same functionality as Pericam, I gotta tell ya - this new 1Shoot app is...
    S W E E T !

    The 'Multi Mode' is particularly useful and it just, like, WORKS!

    fast dump I bit the bullet and downloaded the BSD system.
    It still wont work which is a real bummer.

    Funny thing is I had the old BSD on my system then loaded cydia.
    So most of the files you mention where allready there except for crontab.

    1shoot is sweet but it wont re-size. Or let you change the timing interval.
