Thread: App needs root rights

  1. #1
    Default App needs root rights
    hey guys,
    i am developing a nice app for the iphone at the moment. i am not very experienced with the iphone os and so i have a question.
    my tool needs root rights, cause it has to move some system file which belongs to the user root.
    how could i gain that rights?
    thx a lot.

    ps: please no comments that is a bad behaviour moving system files and so one... it is just for personal use!
    so it is my own fault if something get damaged.

    Setup sudo to not require a root password and then just execute it like:

    sudo yourapp
