Getting Mobile Terminal to work on the new iPad.

Mobile Terminal is the must have tools for a iPad power user, but the Mobile Terminal binary in default Cydia store does not work in the new iPad (well it does not work under 5.1.1)

After a bit of googleing, ijailbreak.com offer some help.

Quick answer:
Add Cydia source: http://www.ijailbreak.com/repository/, enjoy their great build of Mobile Terminal.

(Hum, it would be great if I can set fonts with it since it is such a waste on the new iPad’s 2048×1536 resolution, shouldn’t ask too much as I am only enjoying others build, thanks, I know I should have compile / dev my own….)

ls error on iPad2 4.3.3 jailbreaked devices

I am getting error on terminal when running ls command.

Error as below:
>ls: unrecognized prefix: hl
>ls: unparsable value for LS_COLORS environment variable

Problem is stated in Debian Bug report logs – #544871 – coreutils: ls complains about LS_COLORS: unrecognized prefix: hl, color define has been changed from hl to mh, which produced the error.

edit /etc/profile.d/coreutils.sh
change line to: eval “$(dircolors -b | sed s/hl/mh/)”
then run: source /etc/profile.d/coreutils.sh
ls then now works.
