    what are these files exactly? what are they good for?

    iPhone Binaries Kit 0.04

    This kit contains many binaries from Nightwatch, Netkas, and many I have
    built and tested myself [NerveGas].

    Instructions: Copy this archive into / on the iPhone, and enjoy.

    Revision History

    0.01 Genesis
    0.02 Added vim, find, nc, tar, gzip
    0.03 Added route, srelay, cron, crontab
    0.04 Added python, tcpdump, kextstat, kextunload, minicom
    0.05 Added top, login
    Removed python (now in separate distro)
    0.06 Added arp, netstat, sysctl, iostat, sar, sadc, vipw,
    fdisk, awk

    NOTE: To use some binaries, such as pico and top, you must
    install /usr/share/terminfo from your desktop installation

    NOTE: When using bash, launch with --noediting, to prevent crashes

    those are all command line tools. VIM is a command line editor (text editor in terminal), CRON is a scheduler...can setup jobs to run at 2am every day, etc, TOP brings up the top processes running in a *-ix system (try these in mac os x terminal). they will add functionality to the shell on the iphone. i'm not very skilled at the command line, but i'm sure these will be handy for the code junkies that are writing up these cool hacks/apps/mods

    Oh yes very handy, I'll give you a hint of usefulness of curl...
    Code:
    curl -o filename_to_save.something http://.....
    You can load things directly onto your iphone using nothing but your iphone This is how I install most things on my iphone now, no need to hook up to a computer and use an app to transfer, just yank it out of thin air

    don't forget to change the properties of these files after dumping (just like with the NES emulator, terminal, etc). just jump into each folder that you dump them into (/bin, /sbin, etc) and issue the good ol "chmod 775 *"

    the chmod allows you to execute them...which is what happens whenever running apps in a unix environment each of the commands in the bin file is a mini program. anyways...i don't know enough to be talking anymore...i'll shaddap now
