    -sh: line 53: mkdir: command not found.

    Hey I had the same problem because the ssh kit I downloaded did not include mkdir (just like yours also didn't include it). You can still make folders without mkdir using scp. Here is an example.

    I want to copy the NES.app folder onto my iphone.

    scp -r NES.app root@<iphone.ip.here>:/Applications/

    this will automatically create the NES.app folder for you and put all the NES files inside the folder.

    I have noticed that you are in 'sh', it is possible that mkdir is not in your path (not including the fact that you may not have put mkdir on it). Try typing /bin/mkdir at the command prompt. If it moans about a missing operand, then mkdir will exist. Run this to set your PATH:

    export PATH=/bin:.

    I tend to include the last '.' of that as I cant be bothered to type ./ when executing binaries in my current directory, but that's up to you!

    If you can access the phone with WinSCP use that to make a dir. F7

    Just downloadd the latest binkit and scp the mkdir command to your /usr/bin/ directory! - you might also want to put a few other useful ones on aswell
