    Also you might want to mention this is only if you have OpenSSH installed or any thing else that enables SSH

    But great info none the less

    I'm having a problem with this. I installed OpenSSH, then the Terminal, but the terminal won't stay open for more than a half a second to enable me to do anything. Anyone got a solution?

    Make sure that you are using version 4.26, I am able to open it with no issues on my device on this version, but the old version would not open. To install this version:

    Open Cydia
    Select the "Manage" tab
    Select "Source"
    Select "Edit" in the top right corner
    Select "Add" in the top left corner
    enter the following URL http://www.podzombie.com/repository/

    Now just update your mobile terminal and it should begin working.

    It might be more useful to the user if you were to give some specifics about how that is done. I prefer to use mobile terminal myself, but feel it is always useful to share alternate methods.

    That's excellent, thanks! Only question now is, what do I actually need it for?
