Thread: How run CHMOD on SSH - Please HELP!

    Lightbulb How run CHMOD on SSH - Please HELP!
    Sorry for such newbie question but I searched and couldn't find the answer.

    I'm trying to get a screenshot of my iphone but I am lost after I placed the screenshot file into application directory. Specifically, I don't know what it means by "So, open an SSH run a CHMOD to correct the permissions" AND "Lastly, run the command in SSH:"

    Can someone show me using screenshots? Or any help is appreciated!!

    Please see the instruction below.

    Guide: Screenshots on the iPod Touch

    Alright, I figured this would be a worthy little tip since it's not included in Installer.app. Note: This will not show up on springboard.

    First off, download this file: http://shouldbefree.net/upload/screenshot
    Zipped version if above doesn't work: http://shouldbefree.net/upload/screenshot.zip

    Next, SFTP to your iPod, place it in the /Applications directory, as usual.

    This tool can only be ran via an SSH to your iPod. So, open an SSH run a CHMOD to correct the permissions:

    Code:
    chmod -R a+x /Applications/*

    Lastly, run the command in SSH:

    Code:
    /Applications/screenshotGo retrieve the file at the location it specified on your iPod when it executed.

    I wouldnt reccommend Screenshot.app, just install Dock from Installer.
    But CHMOD'ing is just setting the permissions so that your iPhone actually runs the app instead of opening it and returning to the homescreen. I have Windows, so with iPhoneBrowser, you cant do it, but with SSH, highlight all of the files in the XXXX.app folder, then right click Properties, and type in the Octal code of 0755 and then it should work...

    chmod -R 777 *directory here*

    example "chmod -R 777 /var/mobile/documents/*"

    hope this helps..
