Thread: [1.1.3] VT-100 Terminal fixes!
01-31-2008, 04:20 PM #1[1.1.3] VT-100 Terminal fixes!
NOTE: Terminal has now been updated for 1.1.3. If you're on that firmware, you should use that version instead. Here's more info:
-----OLD THREAD STARTS HERE------
I spent a lot of time finding these fixes, so I thought I'd share. Props to the folks that figured them out, sorry I don't know your names.
The Problems (not everyone has every issue, depends on the JB used):
• Process Ended message on startup
• Password required on startup, but none work
• Backspace either created a forward space or a strange character
The Solution (still requires the password "alpine", but it works):
SSH in from your Desktop's Terminal, then type or paste:
chmod +s Term-vt100
If you've already run SUID Lib Fix for 1.1.3, skip these next two steps, they do the same thing:
mkdir -p /usr/local/arm-apple-darwin/lib
ln -s /usr/lib/libgcc_s.1.dylib /usr/local/arm-apple-darwin/lib/libgcc_s.1.dylib
BEFORE YOU TRY THIS NEXT STEP, check and see if it now works. It seems that the latest jailbreak has fixed something so this is no longer necessary!
If the password (alpine) is still not recognized, then use this step:
chmod +s /usr/bin/login
chmod +s /bin/sh
Reboot the phone
To fix the BSD Subsystem 2.0 backspace problem:
add the following to /etc/profile (which can be opened with any plain text editor):
I think this last issue exists even for those running 1.1.2 with BSD 2.0, and I believe this fix will work for them too.
Hope this saves someone some time.

I tried this, it screwed my phone. Having to do a full restore and start from scratch again. ****.

Anyone else try this?

I just had the backspace problem, and the fix worked.

Tried the backspace fix on my iPhone but it didn't work for me - version 1.1.1 and BSD 2.0.

I found what I believe are the original source for this info at the googlecode site, and it looks like this is working without incident.
Also, I've now run this on 3 phones with different jailbreak versions, and it worked fine on all of them, though not every jailbreak needed every fix.
In my opinion, the latest Devteam Official Jailbreak run through installer is by far the best of them, requiring very few manual fixes when combined with the latest Installer.
