[How To] Install MobileTerminal On Your Jailbroken iPhone 4S

MobileTerminal is a GUI Terminal application for jailbroken iPhone and iPod touch devices. For those who are familiar with using a command line interface must know how it can be used to execute a console ssh-client application. You can also use it carry out simple tasks like changing the default root / mobile password of your iOS device after a fresh jailbreak. However, the version of MobileTerminal currently available on Cydia doesn’t work on iOS 5.0. Luckily, there’s a workaround to make it work on your iPhone 4S.

Simply follow the steps given below (via FSM):

Step 1:

Download iFile (from Cydia). Trial version should be enough for this.

Step 2:

Browsing from your iOS device, open this link (terminal deb file).

Step 3:

Now tap on Download and select Open in iFile (see image below).

Step 4:

From the given options, select Installer (see image below).

Step 5:

Now reboot your iOS device. That’s it!

Enjoy

    I just install it from the xsellize repo. Do we still need to bother changing the password to prevent the ikee virus or is that over?
