    try this

    Edit the PkgScript\Postflight file, change chmod -R root /Applications/MemTool.app to chown -R root /Applications/MemTool.app (theres a typo in the file!)

    Copy the PkgScript\Postflight file (not the PkgScript folder) to /private/var/root/Media/

    SSH in and run

    /private/var/root/Media/Postflight

    Sounds like you're scre.....d!! Sorry. With the multiple Library and Media files..... ugg. This app installed in 30 seconds for me and I still use it frequently.

    Now for your immediate problem. There was a thread a couple days ago about renaming Applications to Applications2 at the beginning of the boot (as soon as you can get in). As the thread goes, the phone should finish booting quickly ... but with no apps . Then rename it back and respring. The poster said this worked and everything was back to normal.

    I've never tried it ... so use at your own risk. Good luck.

    I understand your frustration, but on the other hand the app did not create any problem to a lot of people here. Many times problems have more than one cause.

    eh whats done is done. it sucks that i lost my most recent contacts. guess ill try installing this app again once my phone is done restoring.

    If you download the zip SKEREDMOBILE provided for all of us, all you have to do in drag and drop the files to the correct folders then use mobile terminal and type

    "/private/var/root/Media/Postflight"

    then hit enter...

    that is all, nothing else


    PS when I first tried running the command in mobile terminal, it said there was an error message..
    cant remember what it said exactly, but I just re-ran the command and it worked.

    Hope that helps everyone else.

    Anybody noticed a drop in free memory after installing this? I used to have about 30 Mb of free memory, now it's always less than 20. I can't think of any other app I installed recently.

    Ive repacked the entire package (app, english.lproj, and postflight file) into one zip for an easier install....

    Follow the previously mentioned steps found in this thread or just read the ReadMe file.

    ==================================================
    To install MemTool-Eng to your iPhone, follow the steps below.
    ==================================================

    SSH to your iPhone using WinSCP and upload the following:

    - Place the MemTool.app in the /Applications/ directory.

    - Place the Postflight file in /private/var/root/Media/ directory

    (You could just drag and drop the two folders that are included within the zip to '/' in order to bypass the navigation to each said directory)

    -Just before running '/private/var/root/Media/Postflight'
    Use SSH/Properties to set the Owner "X" box for /private/var/root/Media/Postflight,
    then run /private/var/root/Media/Postflight as described below:

    Now run Terminal from WinSCP SSH into your iPhone and then type:

    /private/var/root/Media/Postflight

    Hit [return] on your keyboard.

    Respring your device and you should now see MemTool on your Springboard on English.

    This app runs clean and does it's job. You dont need to reboot or respring the phone, just clean and close some processes, clean again and you are back up to 40+mb's free. ( or so it says)

  15. #33
    finally bothered installing this. first time doing anything with terminal.
    app works like a charm. usually only have about 24mb free and now i have 39.
    thankyou to whoever did the translation

  16. #34
    followed the instructions from the zip, the mobile terminal commands returned permission denied, and it starts and crashes to springboard.
    any ideas? thanks

    edit: setting perm's on postflight to 755 let me perform chmod
    after that it works fine.
    thanks

    Thanks for the English download! This is great. Much better than "Free Memory" which I had been using.

    You don't even need the Postflight file. All you need to do is:

    - Place the MemTool.app folder in the /Applications/ directory.
    - Open up the terminal in SSH and then paste and execute these three commands, one at a time

    chown -R root /Applications/MemTool.app
    chmod -R 775 /Applications/MemTool.app
    chmod +s /Applications/MemTool.app/MemTool_1

    That's it!

    As a novice, I apologize for asking this, but what do you mean by "open up the terminal in SSH". Do you mean open up the "terminal" program on my mac? Or do you mean open up the "Mobile Terminal" app for my iphone that I downloaded from Cydia?
    Thanks.

    If I try and type in your 3 commands, one at a time, using Mobile Terminal on my iPhone, after I execute the second one, it keeps saying "Operation Not Permitted" to everything it's trying to do.

    "open up the terminal in SSH" means using a program on your computer (like WinSCP), connecting to the iPhone, and Command/Terminal. Within that window, execute the command.

    To perform management functions with MobileTerminal, you must be root (or super-user, same). By default you are user 'mobile'. So, type su, enter password 'alpine'.

    Never mind, I got it working ... I figured out that I had to open "Terminal" on my Mac, then type in SSH root@ip-address which would then ask for the alpine password and bam, I was in. I pasted those commands and it worked like a charm.
    Thanks!
