Robust iOS agents?

RE: Robust iOS agents?
I spent some time a few months ago writing an iOS agent for real devices using the real Safari. If you're willing to do the same, here is what I did:

I took the browser_ios code, forked it and removed all instances of any SSH commands. SSH requires jailbreaking - which I didn't want to do.

Without SSH, you won't be able to interact with the iOS device to clear cache, etc. For these operations, I bought this bluetooth board to pretend to be an accessibility device to the phone/tablet. With the bluetooth board connected to the computer, you can input UI actions to close tabs, clear cache, etc. I coded this logic back into the stubs where these actions were required in browser_ios.

And that's it. It pretty much works flawlessly after that. Real Safari on real devices.
