    So, I just thought that you might want to know...

    This is going to go quick and be easy!


    You will need 4 downloads off Cydia.

    If you do not have them already go and install them:

    Safari DL Patch
    iCommander
    Copy Machine
    TheZip

    After that, you might want to get categories and put them in a folder called SSH or something. So, go on the internet and try to download something, this Safari DL screen will pop up. Click download. After that go on icommander and write down the path to the file. Example: /Applications/MobileSafari.app
    Open Copy Machine and put them where you want by entering it in the line below.
    If the file is zipped and you need to unzip it, that is where the TheZip app comes in. So, if you are on vacation or at a friends house ect. you won't be left out!!!

    Good luck and best wishes-
    OMEGA!#&

    Or you could use Terminal for everything; much simpler and only requires 1 app

    Where do I get Terminal? I searched Cydia, Installer, and the appstore. I need it to change the permissions on a few things for Gameboy4iPhone...

    Cydia>Featured>MobileTerminal

    Permissions would be:

    su

    alpine

    chmod -R 777 directory

    Ah, thanks a lot!

    Basically, MobileTerminal just gives me SSH-like access without a computer and through the command line, correct?

    Yep. You can change permissions with chmod -R (#), move files with mv -R (old directory) (new directory), copy files with cp -R, remove directories or files with rm (-rf after rm for folders), and a bunch more.

    You just need to login, then you can do most things you need. Look in this forum for a terminal commands thread by Peleaz-1 (I think).

    It's not that your method doesn't work. I'm sure it does it's job fine. Gitykins just pointed out that there are easier ways. One of the ways happened to be a method I was looking into at the same time, so I took the opportunity to find out more.

    Sorry for the thread hijack.
