    I'm trying to change my Root SSH password but Mobile Terminal keep closing when I run it.
    I've uninstalled, reinstalled, rebooted but it still has the same issue.
    Anyone have/had this issue and know how to resolve it?

    EDIT: I'm on an iPhone 4 if that makes any difference.

    That worked.
    Just make sure you delete the original terminal before installing the new one for iOS 4

    Thanks!

I was just changing the password... su root / alpine, etc... and doesnt like alpine or any type nothing. weird.. and maybe I need to delete sbsettings all stuck showing old terminal in there once I deleted it and didnt think about the dock for it.

    The version that is giving you problems, is it 364.3-12 ?

    That version is running just fine for me.

    There is a never version in Cydia

    If you don't see it there, get the .deb file from Saurik's tweets hack

    (the 426 version was an unstable hack as you are finding out)

    If you get the .deb file, yes SSH it in, either to autoinstall or tmp with an install command.

    I would remove the other version first.

    Glad someone asked about this, because I tried to find Saurik's version, but no one ever answered where it was. Got it now, although I never had problems with 426.

    There is an automatic mechanism in place. Create this directory path on your iPhone:

    /var/root/Media/Cydia/AutoInstall

    Note that "/var/root/Media/" already exists.

    Then copy any debs you want to install into the "AutoInstall" dir and reboot the phone. The deb will be installed automatically.

    Also, you can do this:

    dpkg -i /path/to/deb/file.deb

    S-
