I'm using erica's launch command to launch an application from the terminal (via SSH). However, I am obtaining the following error (with whatever application):

$ launch com.apple.MobileSafari
2011-07-28 18:20:11.433 launch[6943:707] *** Assertion failure in -[UIApplication init], /SourceCache/UIKit/UIKit-1448.89/UIApplication.m:528

Any idea would be appreciated?

This is because the ios can only have one Gui app open at a time. However, this is not the place for this question. –  soandos Aug 7 '11 at 8:17
    
Why is it closed? –  Mowgli Feb 5 '13 at 13:34
