This post may be a bit repetitive if you read my last post on installing MobileTerminal for the iOS4 to iOS4.0.2 firmware (as the Step are actually the same). However, if you did not read my last post then this tutorial will come in handy. If you have recently jailbroken on the iOS4.1 firmware, you may have realized MobileTerminal by default, is not compatible with the iOS4.1 firmware. This can come as a real downer if you are looking to change your iDevices root password, or are looking to install some terminal applications like Pirni. Luckily for you, we have packaged a version of MobileTerminal that is compatible with the iOS4.1 Firmware. In this tutorial from iJailbreak.com, you will learn how to install MobileTerminal V4.2.6 for the iOS4.1 firmware.
Note: This version of MobileTerminal is compatible with all generations of the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch running the iOS4 to iOS4.1 firmware.

Note: This version of MobileTerminal is a rewrite of the original MobileTerminal. As it is still in beta, it is missing some useful functions like scrolling, and preferences.
