Is there a way to make an application start a process not linked to it


I've written an application for iphone in bash that runs a command then closes, however, i want my application to launch a process that keeps running while the app has been killed, I.E. a process that is started from my application but is not ended by killall $MyApplication. Thanks in advance
p.s. Preferably without messing with launchctl... caused problems last time i did...

can you please explain.
I can see many ways that this could be used for some "not so nice things"

Basicly, i want the app to be a toggle for springboard, or thats what it will end up being, but currently i just want it to enable something to stay running, much like a launch daemon would but without using a launchadaemon

This is Apple's iphone.

This is not open source. And as fast as the linux community tries to keep up with their products, they keep skipping ahead, to thwart linux's communication with their devices.

I was given an iTouch. I hate it as it is very linux-unfriendly.

As a result, I will never buy an Apple product.

I think this is the wrong forum for you, but good luck.
