    I'm trying to run the "screenshot" application from my iPhone so that I can document some wireless settings for my employer. Trouble is, I can't seem to run any applications from within iPhoneInterface, so I have to do it via ssh.

    Except, of course, that I want to take some screenshots with the wireless turned off. So, that means I can't use ssh to run the applications. Does anyone know how to run applications via iPhoneInterface? None of the usual "tricks" work:

    Code:
    iPhone:/Applications/# ls
    .
    ..
    (some stuff snipped)
    screenshot
    So, you can see that the screenshot binary is in /Applications where it belongs. But look:

    Code:
    iPhone:/Applications/# ./screenshot
    Command './screenshot' not found.
    iPhone:/Applications/# open screenshot
    Command 'open' not found.
    iPhone:/Applications/# /Applications/screenshot
    Command '/Applications/screenshot' not found.
    iPhone:/Applications/# exec screenshot
    Command 'exec' not found.
    Anyone know? I'd rather not get into writing hacks to make the ssh shell sleep without using the actual, broken "sleep" command...
