    Can some kind soul explain to me how I can edit the sudoers file on my iphone?

    I would like to add the user "mobile" to it, so that I can do what's necessary to install iPhoneVideorecorder (see http://www.iphonevideorecorder.com/download.html ).

    When I try to do this
    sudo chmod 777 /Applications

    I get the error message "mobile is not in the sudoers file".

    Any help or suggestions will be highly appreciated.

    Problem solved: finally, I'm able to ssh into my iphone as root.

    Regards,
