MobileTerm Backgrounder Featured

MobileTerm Backgrounder is a brand new jailbreak tweak that allows you to maintain a persistent connection to the Mobile Terminal app. If you’ve used Mobile Terminal in the past, then you know how frustrating it can be to close out of the app, return, and all of your previous data disappears. MobileTerm Backgrounder is a tweak that works with the jailbroken Mobile Terminal app, and it makes it much easier to continue where you left off when switching between apps. Have a look at our video walkthrough inside to see its ins and outs.

There are no settings to configure for MobileTerm Backgrounder. Obviously, you’ll need the Mobile Terminal app in order to take advantage of what it offers. Both MobileTerminal and MobileTerm Backgrounder can be had free of charge from Cydia’s BigBoss repo. If you’re a regular user of the terminal emulator on iOS, then please sound off with your thoughts in the comments below.

    What is the point of running mobile terminal? Just curious.

      It like DOS on a computer. I used ilex Rat to restore my jail broken iPad 3 and you use mobile terminal to run the application. It’s the world before we had GUI.

    Can I ask a silly question?
    How do you control the iphone (without touching the screen)?
    I have used vnc from cydia but it is tooo slow.

    Is there an alternative you are using?
