xcode reboot command driving me CRAZY!
So, I'm pretty new to xcode but have some understanding of its basics. For a while now I've been trying to create an method that reboots the phone. I know there are other apps out there that do this already (I've discovered them post trying to do this on my own) however I"m at the point now where I just want to understand how to do it!
I've tried the following with no luck:
I understand that you can go into mobile terminal and gain root access then type "reboot" which will successfully reboot the device, but I have no clue how to gain root access within an app to then use the system("reboot"); command. I'm assuming the reason this doesn't work is because from within the app I don't have root privileges.
Can anyone shine some light on this for me?

You need to run the command as root.

maxk, thanks for responding but as you'll see in my original post I indicate that I am aware that I need to run it from root. The problem is that I'm not sure how to do that.
