    I recently upgraded to 3.0 and JB'd via redsn0w. when I ssh into my 3g, I no longer have simple commands like 'vi', 'ps', and so on. what gives?

    I have the same.. Also ping, telnet doesnt work..used to be fine on 2.2.1...I'd like to know how we can fix this? There must be a way of importing these basic cmds and registering it with the os somehow?

    I can't answer about all of those commands, but for vi, I didn't think it was ever available without installing VIM from cydia. I'd bet those other commands are part of a package of some kind.

    You can get ps along with finger, fingerd, last, lsvfs, and md commands by installing 'adv-cmds' via Cydia.

    And yeah, as calvy said the closest to vi, is vim, which I always used anyways so I'm happy there.

    Here are some of my installed packages. I don't know what was installed during jailbreak or what I installed later. ps, ping (which works for me), telnet, and the other things you're asking about are in these packages.

    BigBoss Recommended Tools (I think this may install a lot of the rest of these), core utilities, core utilities (/bin) (I need to look into why I have both of those), inetutils, network-cmds, shell-cmds, system-cmds, basic-cmds, adv-cmds. Searching Cydia for cmds should bring all those last few up.

    I also have top, unrar, unzip, wget, whois, sed, gzip, grep, bzip2 listed as separate packages, but I only remember installing half of them, so some must have came with the jailbreak.

    Sorry to resurrect this old thread but I have MobileTerminal (i think that's what it's called) and "ping" is an unrecognized command... any ideas how to "add" it to the commands list?

    Install inetutils from Cydia.
