    Could somebody give me some quick tips on how to use terminal? I'm looking to look at the top CPU usage in order. I can't remember the command. What do I type in? I know it's like top u or something. Then how to kill that process when I'm done? Is it kill and then whatever the process name is? Thanks!

    "top -o cpu" then to exit, control C. Top is not installed by default on iOS. You may have to install it via Cydia.

    Yep I have it on my jailbroken i5.

    Just want to see if I have any stuck processes or one that is acting up and using all my cpu.
