    VT100 allows me to run TOP, but MobileTerminal never has, and now that I'm running Summerboard TOP give me:

    SummerBoardLoader: SummerBoardService available.
    Error opening terminal: unknown.

    The issue that I'm having with terminal is that there is random text when I open the application on the iphone. Here is a screenshot.





    ls of /bin directory
    screenshot command

    i also get duplicate characters as shown. iphone version 1.02

    my prompt appears as [1m[7m#[m[1m[0m [0m[m[m[J# [K

    Why is this and how do I correct it?

    just get term-vt100. it doesn't have the crap problems that MobileTerminal has.

    it's way better than MobileTerminal.. you can tap-drag to get arrow keys, tab, ctrl-c, ctrl-d, escape.. all very important when working in unix.

    MobileTerminal is an awful terminal IMO.

    edit: also change the TERM variable to xterm in your /etc/profile. you'll get a much friendlier environment especially if you use PuTTY or Terminal on OS X to get in a lot.

    but it actually lets you type the command? Maybe your binaries dont have the correct permissions

    i was having the same problem with the term crashing as i typed a command in. It was also occuring in an ssh session from my pc (half way through the command the connection dropped). I found the solution to be reinstalling the BSD subsystem. No more problems after that!
