    Default Mobile Terminal Q
    Is this app really worth having? I understand it does basically what ssh does but it would be nice for when you aren't by a pc/Mac.

    My problem is that it closes when I open it but I researched google for that and it seems I have to put it in the phones file system.

    The tutorials I have found are kinda old now.

    Anyone able to school me on this??

    Thanks a lot for answering my Qs,


    Jon

    You'll need mobileterminal iOS 4. I'm assuming you're on iOS 4 and can't run the old mobileterminal.

    I have the file from a Google search a while ago...if you want it PM me your email address and I can send it to you. I'm at work so I can't access my computer, so if you can't wait, Google

    I got one in the .app format (not .deb) so I just dropped it into the Applications folder via SSH

    MobileTerminal is your 'on the phone' backup admin tool. It's not needed ... until nothing else works .

    I have also researched the same problem as I'm on 4.1 and mobile terminal crashes on start up. So at this point there is no other option than to ssh a downloaded mobile terminal file to our phones?

    Sure, Google search

    The SSH method is the only legitimate way that we can help with the new mobileterminal. Any other methods, you're on your own to find.

    Gotcha. I'm sure it'll just be a matter of time before it's updated in cydia. Now i just hafta decide whether i can wait or if i should break down and ssh it in. Thanks for the help though!

    I posted a link to the newest Mobileterminal version a while ago: HERE

    You'll just need to ssh it into the /Applications/ folder.

    And yes, it really is worth having. I don't go a day without using it at least once.

    MobileTerminal has its uses. I use it to test my SSH server on my desktop computer, and also to run the "top" command (install via Cydia with at least 'Developer' viewing filters) to see how much CPU my various phone processes take up.

    You can also use it to run the "dpkg" command to uninstall a rogue installation if your phone is too lagged to run Cydia. I did this once though it was over SSH and not with the MobileTerminal app, but either way would have worked.

    Found this post. It says add the podzombie repo in cydia and install a 4.1 friendly version of mobileterminal. Has anyone tried this with any success???

    Yes, I tried podzombie, the mobileterminal in that repo works fine on iOS4.x.
