Mobile Terminal Commands

I got Terminal with dTunes recently and unlike many others who simply poof it off, I'm very intrested in knowing what I can do with it. Is there a tutorial site that has some commands I can use to get familiar with it?

Thanks!

You can do what you do in any linux/unix terminal. (ok typing is a bit of a pain)

I mostly use it to ssh into one of my servers or even download a file using wget on the schools wifi when i'm in class. (usb power ftw!)

If you really never used a terminal before you can take a look here:

it's about terminal.app in OSX but most will apply to Mobile Terminal too.

Enjoy

Oh, how I wish there was a site that gave us all the mobile terminal commands and what they do...

Actually the available commands depend on what you've install from cydia.
If you install the ImageMagick packaged you get the lovely convert to convert images (also resize,...)

There a small list at wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Unix_programs

else there is always "man commandhere"

Aha, thank you. I had tried a Google but no luck.

Here is a list of features unique to Mobile Terminal.

The swipe up command is particularly helpful

By default, Terminal uses the Bash shell which is pretty old and well documented so you might want to google that. A good way to start would be to learn cat, grep, sort, uniq, diff and learn how to pipe and redirect output.

There are a lot of commands you can install from the Terminal section in Cydia and I also suggest getting wget, awk, and maybe links and lynx (for grepping the -dump option) and ssh. If you have a terminal on your computer and set up ssh properly (see ssh in my sig), it can be the easiest and fastest way to transfer files.

Most of the commands are in the /bin and /usr/bin directories so you can scroll through there and poke around for interesting names.

Unlock iphone

Hey guys,

My mate has a iPhone 3gs on 3.1.2 with a cracked LCD.. Does anyone know a way to unlock the phone from terminal? What I mean is that it's stuck on the lockscreen and there is no way to unlock it as the left side of the screen doesn't respond to touch. If we can unlock it to springboard with terminal we might be able to regain some functionality - using the right of the screen.

Cheers,
Josh
