As many of you may know, the CLI tool "top" is a very useful tool that lists open processes in order of the resources they are using. The tool is available from Saurik's Cydia/Telesphoreo repo and has long been a staple in troubleshooting battery and memory issues on jail broken phones. But if you've tried to run "top" in iOS 7, you have probably seen an error like this: Code: Error opening terminal: xterm-256color After much frustration, I found a simple solution to this problem in reddit, and thought I'd put it here for anyone else who's got the same problem. The issue is caused by the fact that iOS 7 has moved the terminal profiles. A simple symbolic link fixes the problem. 1. Login as root either through SSH or in MobileTerminal. 2. At the prompt, enter the following commands: Code: ln -s x /usr/share/terminfo/78 export TERM=xterm-color The first command creates a symbolic link between /usr/share/terminfo/78, where "top" expects to find the xterm terminal profiles, and their actual location at /usr/share/terminfo/x. The second command changes your terminal setting from xterm-256color to xterm-color for better compatibility. That's it. You can now run "top."
