How To: Install MobileTerminal On Jailbroken iPhone 4S And iPad 2

If you have tried to install MobileTerminal on your iPhone 4S or iPad 2 you may have noticed that the current version of MobileTerminal available through Cydia is not compatible with the iOS 5 firmware generation. Thus, in order to get MobileTerminal working on the iOS 5 firmware generation you must add an external repository which features the latest version of MobileTerminal (v520-1).

In this how to from iJailbreak.com you will learn how to install MobileTerminal version 520-1 on your iPhone 4S or iPad 2 by adding the official iJailbreak.com repository that features an iOS 5.o/iOS 5.0.1 compatible version of MobileTerminal.

Note: This how to corresponds to all iOS devices running the iOS 4 or iOS 5 firmwares.

Step 1) The first thing you will need to do is add iJailbreak’s official repository to your iPhone 4S or iPad 2. You can do this now by adding the repository listed below…

Unsure on how to add a Cydia Source? You can add a source by going into Manage > Sources > Edit > Add. Here is our repo URL:
Note: If you already have a version of MobileTerminal installed on your iDevice you will need to remove it before installing MobileTerminal version 520-1. Do this now by going into Manage > Packages > MobileTerminal > Modify > Remove.

Step 2) Now you will need to go into the iJailbreak source ( Manage > Sources > iJailbreak.com), and once you are inside the iJailbreak source you will see MobileTerminal within the many other packages we have in our repository. When you find the MobileTerminal package, click it and install it to your iPhone 4S or iPad 2.

Step 3) Once MobileTerminal has successfully installed you can launch MobileTerminal from your SpringBoard. When MobileTerminal is running you will see a command line interface presented to you.

MobileTerminal (v520-1) features configurable options if you click the italic i icon on the right side of the screen.

These configurable options include Shortcode menus, and gesture controls; two very powerful features that will make your MobileTerminal experience so much better.
Congratulations! You have just installed MobileTerminal on your iPhone 4S or iPad 2 running the iOS 5.0 or iOS 5.0.1 firmware.
