    Already released in beta stages through their Google Code page, the guys at networkpx (creators of iKeyEx) are nearly ready to release Grip, a Growl look-alike for iPhone. If you don't know about Growl, you're probably not using a Mac. Growl provides system notifications (and tons of application notifications as well) in a sleek HUD themeable style.

    From a translated blog post we see there's currently two notification methods:

    • Using a text pop-up box that appears in the screen must be to relate to, and decide what you want to do.
    • Use of voice messages by using Tziltzol (sic - looks like translator isn't perfect ) or vibration.


    No definite word on release date - just "Soon we expect a very big surprise וטובה! "

    Once they're ready to release you should see it on Cydia.

    thanks to ares07 for the tip

    poetic_folly, why are you quoting badly translated stuff, when on the project page there is complete information for devs and users, in proper english???

    Is there a way to make GriP show you notifications for email? I have elert, but I don't like it at all. Elert alway freezes up my iTouch for a second or so and the close button on it doesn't really work. I'd much prefer being able to use GriP instead of elert.

    When I first installed it, I didn't get any notifications. After I rebooted, I get them now.

    how do you install

    To install:

    Download the .deb file.

    Put it WHEREVER you want in the iPhone by SSH, then open terminal and go to that location. You can put it in /var/mobile so when you start MobileTerminal, you're already there.

    Now, you'll need super user privileges. If you are sending the command through SSH and logged in as root, you already have super privileges.

    If not, you can do:
    Code:

    $ su
    $ [your password, most likely "alpine"]
    Now you have super user privileges.

    Now run, assuming you didn't rename it:
    Code:

    $ dpkg -i hk.kennytm.grip-0.1-11e.deb
    If you have sudo installed, instead of the $ su, $ password, you can do:
    Code:

    $ sudo dpkg -i hk.kennytm.grip-0.1-11e.deb
    $ [password]
    If you renamed it, then it'd be:
    Code:

    $ dpkg -i FILENAME.deb

    To install:

    1. Download GriP from the networkpx google page.
    2. Copy the .deb file to your iPhone/iTouch using SSH.
    3. SSH into your phone as root and navigate to wherever you stored the .deb file at.
    4. Run the following commands to install:
    Code:
    dpkg -i ./hk.kennytm.grip-0.1-11e.deb
    5. Reboot your iPhone/iTouch once its done and then your good to go.

    EDIT: dapengi, you beat me by just a few minutes.
