Thread: iPad command prompt?

  1. #1
    Default iPad command prompt?
    Hi everyone,

    I made the mistake of installing Intelliscreen on my iPad (4.3.3) and now it is formatted and glitched like an iPhone.

    I tried to access Cydia and settings to remove it but it unfortunately restarts/crashes my iPad.

    I managed to find a solution through google and it told me to do this.

    Run the following command to find the list of applications installed:

    dpkg --list

    Since I was looking for "intelliscreen" specifically - I actually used this command:

    dpkg --list | grep -i intelliscreen

    The results of this command was:

    ii com.intelliborn.intelliscreen 11:4.8.3 Need to know where your next meeting is? Do

    To remove the package, I ran the following command:

    dpkg --remove com.intelliborn.intelliscreen

    My question is, where do I put these command lines?

    Many thanks,


    PS, restoring is my last option at the moment. My iTunes can't restore my iPad for some reason. I keep getting an unknown error.

    Open a Mobile Terminal window on the device or start an ssh session from your computer. Enter the dpkg command within that new window.

    I can't click any app on my iPad otherwise it crashes.. So Mobile Terminal is out of the question unfortunately.

    How do I start an ssh session from my computer?

    Many thanks!

    If you have previously installed OpenSSH with Cydia, then ssh from your computer to the iPad is possible.
    .......... ssh [email protected]_address. ........ (default password is alpine)

    On a windows computer, ssh is not a standard program. I use and recommend Cygwin for unix-like commands in windows (it's free ) Google Cygwin

    Thanks for the incredibly fast reply!

    Unfortunately I did not install OpenSSH with Cydia and I can't access my WiFi IP address through my settings on my iPad.

    For Cygwin, do I need to install anything on my iPad to make it work? I'm reading on a few tutorials at the moment and it all says I need to install OpenSSH on Cydia.

    Thanks, I'm desperately trying to stay away from 4.3.5.

    No reason to install Cygwin because OpenSSH was not installed. Both are required.

    Search and install iPhoneBrowser on your computer. It might be able to access the device.
