    Post [HOT] Native iPhone process viewer
    Just as we did before for the Symbian handset we will now publish some applications you can put on your iPhone. We decided with an important missing one, a process viewer. This program is no rocket science but you can use it to monitor, renice, kill, etc. processes on your iPhone. As an extra SysInfo has options to Reboot or Respring your iPhone.







    iPhone System Information:
    This application show all processes running on your iPhone. Tapping one of the processes displays detailed information about the process including (and interesting) the command used to start the process.
    SysInfo it allows you to send signals to a process, reboot your iPhone and reload the springboard.

    Last but not least SysInfo displays the memory available on your iPhone as well as the current load.

    History:
    I wrote this little application to be able to monitor my new iPhone's memory usage during development of some scientific background applications.

    Now that mobile internet and telephony has become available for nearly everybody that can read this message, threads of viruses and abuse get more realistic. In fact, it is not that difficult to make applications to tap in your phone and abuse it in several ways such as listen to your conversation or take pictures with the camera, dial $$ numbers, etc. Even when you (think you) turned your phone off! With the great native applications available on the iPhone this gets serious. These applications are not running in the (semi-) secure sandbox as originally designed by Apply or a similar Java environment. Apple should have realized we are adults and we don't want to play in sandboxes anymore; at least, not while that limit's possibilities of this nice little 'black-box'.

    Monitoring your phone becomes a need so I decided to publish it here to save you some time.

    **Available via Installer**

    although interesting to see that the cpu is set to 400 mhz. probably energy saving as the chip could to up to 620 mhz.

    added to my installer source under utilities http://ride4.org/shai.xml

    but you will still need to chmod 755 as said above. The zip file from the developer doesnt have the proper permissions set.

    This is up on Ste's sources.
    And after installing it, Installer says I have an update for it (same version) on Shai's source. Ah!

    You must conect to iPhone using Putty or winscp405. After go to Application folder. There you will find this SysInfo app you select it and push F9 wich allow you to see the properties. Then modify from 06XX to 0755. Then you have executions right to lunch the app.

    To conect you need to put user root and pass dottie (firmware 1.0.2 ) or alpine (1.1.1) . Also before must have instaled on you're phone oppenSSH, BSD subsystem and lighttpd webserver.

    That's a very cool app, and real impressive for a first version too.
    Did a short news post on it HERE to help spread the word.
    Question / request for you - any plans to take the CPU% / resource usage numbers for individual processes and get them into a column / columns on the main process listing screen - so you get more of an 'at a glance' view of any rresource hog type apps?
    Cheers ...

    OK thats basically what I thought, but since I have never seen or heard of putty, those are sounding like windoze directions? I use my iphone with OS X. I connected w/ cyberduck, but didn't see any options to change permissions. Do I need to use a different app, or what do I do in cyberduck?
    Or if someone can point me to a link where it actually explains how to do all this, that would be great. I've searched, and can't find specific directions...

    Just install MobileFinder, go into the folder for the app (/Applications/SysInfo.app) and modify the SysInfo file to turn on the Exec permission on all three buttons.

    Alternatively, install Terminal (VT100) and then cd /Applications/SysInfo.app, then chmod 755 SysInfo

    Or install the current installer version from Ste (Conceited Software) that does this already.
