    Hi
    I was wondering if all of Mobile Terminals' files and stuff are in the folder within the Applications folder. I want to know in case something ever happens to Cydia/Icy (I hate Icy) and I need to fix it with terminal.

    I was also wondering if anyone knew how to or if it is possible to make a file run as a terminal application via a terminal command. When I say 'terminal application' I mean that there is a file with terminal commands in it (called a script?), which is a .txt file or whatever it needs to be, and with a simple terminal command I can make that file run in terminal. What would I have to do to do that?

    Thanks in advanced

    Why would you need to modify Mobile Terminal's files to fix Cydia or Icy? By the way, I think you posted this in the wrong forum.

    I don't want to modify them, I want to know if they are all in there so if something happens I can just put M.T. into the applications folder and fix whatever happened.

    And yes, I might have done that, but if you look at it in a different way it is in the right forum.

    No. You need to manually install Mobile Terminal itself.

    *sigh*
    Well how would I do that without Cydia, Icy, Terminal etc.?
    Yes or No; Are all of Mobile Terminal's files and stuff in the Applications* folder?

    *the Applications folder with the Themes' folder too

    You don't need Mobile Terminal if you have SSH. SSH allows you to send commands to the iDevice.

    Let me modify the question for you:
    Can you install Mobile Terminal via SSH? If so, where can I get it?

    I realize that MobileTerminal would be nice, but you could always fix it by sending the exact same commands to your iDevice via SSH (it'd be much faster and do the same thing without having to install MobileTerminal). If you really want MobileTerminal though, go to Cydia and look at what files it has on your filesystem. Back those up to your computer via SSH and also check to see where they are located. I would store their locations in a text file so I could easily see. SSH the files to the filesystem in case of emergency. Why don't you just keep it on your iPod instead of having to SSH it in?
