Bad Interpreter

Hi. My name is Caleb (a.k.a RagingNinja) form the whited00r forums. (Whited00r makes custom firmware for iOS devices).

I have been learning and creating simple shells scripts. I have been recently using VIM for Windows or using VirtualBox to run the UBUNTU OS within VirtualBox to create my shell scripts. But I keep getting this "Bad interpreter; no such file or directory" error.



Here is the script.

Code:
#!/bin/sh
# A script made by RagingNinja to apply a Lock Info Theme.

#-------------------------------------


clear
echo "Lock Info iOS 5 theme v1.3.1 BETA"
sleep 2
echo
echo #####################################
sleep 2

echo "This script will place the iOS 5 theme 
images in the right places"
sleep 3

echo "--------------------------------------------"

echo

sleep 6

base=/Library/iOS5LockInfo
lockinfo_base=/Library/LockInfo

mv "/Library/iOS5LockInfo/iOS5LockScreen" "$lockinfo_base/Themes";

if [[ -d "$lockinfo_base/Themes/iOS5LockScreen" ]]; then
echo "iOS 5 LockInfo Lock Screen Images Moved";
else echo "Error...."
fi

sleep 2

mv "/Library/iOS5LockInfo/iOS5InfoShade" "$lockinfo_base/Themes";

echo "iOS 5 LockInfo InfoShade Images Moved"
sleep 1

echo

echo "Please press Enter/Return to Continue";
else echo "Error...";
    
    echo "Please press Enter/Return to Continue";

sleep 2

if [[ -d "$base" ]]; then
    echo "Sucessful and ready to go!";

exit;

else echo "No effect will take place until a respring/reboot";
    exit

fi

done

The instructions are to put the "iOS5LockInfo" file into "/Library"

Then put the iOS5LockInfo.sh in "/var/mobile" and give "0755" permissions by doing it manually or using the "chmod +x iOS5LockInfo.sh" command.



The script runs perfectly fine on my iPhone 2G (WD v4.4.1 - iOS 3.1.3). Please help...


P.S The Bad interpreter error is coming from other people. Not me.


AND yes I know there are some lines of code in there that aren't doing anything or are useless. Its still in BETA testing and I'm just trying to get around the bad interpreter stuff.

FYI I'm a ULTRA beginner scripter. Smilie

For the message "no such file or directory", as you have several files/directories,
I would issue an "ls -ld name" for each file or directory you have in the script
just before you use it the first time (with 'cp' or 'mv').

One of them does not exist.

You get 'bad interpreter' because Windows fills its text files with useless carriage returns. You end up with '#!/bin/bash^M' as your first line and since there's no file named /bin/bash^M you get "bad interpreter".

You can fix existing files with tr -d '\r' < infile > outfile but it's best to edit your Ubuntu scripts in Ubuntu.
