08-25-2009, 06:11 PM #6

Yup, though we used to not dare have a jailbroken phone without terminal. It was required.

haha. I think it should be installed when you jailbreak

I cant seem to get terminal to download torrents after this latest dTunes update. After "preparing" them in dTunes and running the ./gettorrent command, it stalls at connecting and doesnt download anything.
Appreciate any insight...
After entering the ./gettorrent command inside Terminal I see "operation timed out, connect to tracker failed" error.... and then nothing.
Please help guys!

Firstly, ensure you have port 51413 open on your network.
If you don't have this port open or want to use the torrent feature how it used to work then follow these steps.
1) Download iFile (featured apps in Cydia) - It's free shareware
2) Open iFile and navigate to /var/mobile/
3) You should see "gettorrent" - Press it
4) Select Text Viewer
5) Select Edit
6) Change the line that says:
ctorrent -p 51413 -P "-UT1610-" -A "uTorrent/1610"
to now read:
7) Save the file, go back to Mobile Terminal and try again.

Thanks for the post above. Since I'm unsure how to open port 51413 on my network, I followed your instructions for getting the torrent downloads to work as they did in previous versions, but with no luck. I changed the gettorrent file as described, saved it, and terminal is still not able to download torrents. I've reinstalled terminal and dtunes, resprung and rebooted what seems like 50 times. When terminal was searching on 51413, it listed the port as "unavailable"... when i altered the gettorrent file and terminal searches on different ports, it times out and states that the tracker can not be found. Not sure what else to do, previous version worked great for me.
Thanks for your help

First of... a big thanks to everyone that has helped out on this project. You are rockstars.
I think I am having a similar problem as posted above.
Here's the deal:
Brand new ipod touch 2G with official 3.0 firmware. Fresh jailbreak. Dtunes worked great first try. (this was 3 days ago)
However... after some unrelated complications I ended up restoring the ipod back to factory settings. Jailbreaked again. After a new install of dtunes:
(Listening on 51413)
1st try ... (downloading through the search feature in dtunes via the pirate bay) I am getting the same message in MobileTerminal "warn, connect to tracker failed: Operation timed out"
2nd try ... (downloading through Safari via btjunkie.org) MobileTerminal says "specified port 51413: Address already in use
Listening on port 51411"
... but worked! Download complete. I exited MobileTerminal
3rd try ... (downloading through Safair via btjunkie.org) "-sh: fork: ertry: Resource temporarily unavailable"
Shut down phone & power up.
Went back to dTunes and selected torrent. Opened MobileTerminal and everything downloads groovy.
Question: is this a problem with specific torrent download sites? why would torrents from the piratebay not work while btjunkie works fine? Don't laugh if this is a dumb question. I have no idea what I am doing. =)
...also, a question for you MobileTerminal gurus out there. How do you cancel a download in progress?

I have been having the identical problem as Clubschmitz above. Torrents from Pirate Bay and Isohunt.com through Dtunes would never connect in the Terminal whether on wifi or 3g. I tried one from Btjunkie and it connected and started coming in immediately.

I don't think the issue is necessarily with the latest version of Dtunes. I had problems downloading torrents from TPB soon after installing some "necessary updates" or something like that from Cydia a week or so ago.
I later did the latest version of Dtunes update - and still have the time out errors.
I also tried to modify the gettorrent file as specified in a previous post, but it still times out ("warn, connect to tracker failed: operation timed out"); additionally, the values end up reverting back to what they originally were too.
I can download SOME torrents obtained from ISOHunt just fine for some reason though, but not all. This is aggravating. I used to be able to DL any/all torrents just fine until I did the "necessary updates" thing on Cydia...

I agree. I think the real problem lies with the torrent sites and the trackers used.
Just keep an eye on the trackers that are not connecting - this is easier to do on a desktop.
I would suggest you try the same torrent from a desktop machine and see what happens. As a further test you could try connecting with different ports from the desktop and then modify the dTunes file if it's still not working on the default.
Basically, try a few different files from a few different sources and see what's going on.

Something that may help you all, On the mac users had to delete the application support file for transmission to make torrents run for some reason. Something similar to this needs to be done to make your torrents run on Dtunes. SSH in and find all related files and clean it out good.

For mobile terminal just swipe your finger to the top right while in mobile terminal, stops download
