MobileTerminal update finally lands in Cydia

Fans of the popular MobileTerminal utility for jailbroken iOS devices will be happy to hear that the frustration is finally over. After a several-month absence, an iOS 5-compatible version of the tool is now available in Cydia.

This means that you can forget about going through the tedious 5 step process of manually installing the app’s .deb file every time you want to get MobileTerminal on your device. The package is now just a tap away…

MobileTerminal, which is a bite-sized emulator of the Terminal utility in Mac OS, has a number of uses. You can use it to set file permissions and change passwords on your iOS device, or to SSH into remote systems.

So if you’ve been waiting for the updated app to hit Cydia, or this is the first time you’ve heard about it and want to check it out, you can find MobileTerminal 520-2 in the BigBoss repo. And don’t worry, it’s still free.
