    Is it possible to use SSH to open an app on the iPhone 3GS 3.0.1? I really want to open the hidden jailbreak app I made installed on my dads iphone at random times using iSSH on my iphone so I can make it randomly open and display messages while he's using it. If possible YAY!

    try this is terminal over ssh:

    launctl [REPLACE THIS WITH THE APP'S CODE EG. com.apple.springboard]

    But that wouldn't work, you need your apps code.

    In OS X it's
    Code:
    open -a [B]application name[/B]
    iPhone OS shouldn't be too different.

    OK I just found a way to get safari to launch the application so now can I use ssh to open the URL?

    EDIT: I am still looking for how to just open the app

    I think 2.0+ disabled this kind of thing.

    ... I could be wrong.

    Most users that posted here have probably moved on and bumping is against the rules.
