    It controls your devices filesystem


    Say you needed to change permission of a folder with no WiFi.

    chmod -R 777 /Applications/AppName.app

    Say you need to remove your MxTube videos for some reason

    rm -rf /var/mobile/Media/MxTube

    Say Cydia is crashing and you need to install something

    sudo apt-get install PackageID

    Say you need to respring, but you have no respring apps

    killall SpringBoard

    It really is very useful.

    my advice is dont use it unless you know what you are doing or unless you are following a guide because it is a powerfull program that has the power to cripple apps on your ipod (stop them opening etc...) and can ruin your ipod if used incorrectly

    whatever you do, don't do rm -rf. Seriously, don't do it.

    I have no idea what it was for either, but dammit, peer pressure got me to install it from Cydia.
