    hello,
    i've been reading up about the recent worms that effect jailbroken iphones, and the advice is to change the SSH client password from the default alpine to one of your prefence, and i've read the guild on how to do that.

    i was wondering if anyone can explain to me, does having a jailbroken iphone mean that i have a ssh client installed on it already?

    i used blacksnow to jb, and have most recent firmware 3.1.2(?). recently i have been having troubles installing new applications from cydia causing my phone to lock up.
    all i've got installed on it from cydia (that is working) Reminder and lock calander, so i am not installing too many applications on my phone,

    thanks

    No, you have to download SSH from Cydia.

    No, afaik jailbreaking does not automatically SSH onto your phone. But if you do install openssh, you should change the default password.

    Yes , the first thing you should do after installing SSH is change the password to one you will easily remeber , because if you forget it you stuck . And when ever not using SSH just turn it off through sbsettings .

    Can someone please help me? I do have SSH and I've read the tutorials on changing my password and downloaded the mobile client app and none of it works. I have a 3GS 32G running 3.1.2. I have a PC with windows XP and use WinSCP to ssh into my phone. How can I change my password??

    What do you mean by not working? Are you using MobileTerminal app?

    OP...or to be on the safer side, download "iPhone Folders"

    it lets u do the same thing as SSH but its NOT OPEN meaning, u can only access your folders when u are synced to your PC via the USB cord

    If you're talking about iPhone folders, then no. Just click the link above that
    was provided. It's a program to be installed on your PC. Took like 2 minutes for me.

    11-23-2009 08:46 PM
  16. Hack-My-i's Avatar

    Just be careful because, like open ssh, u can mess your phone up and possibly brick it if u dont know what your doing...

    This works absolutely great. I have never done anything like this and it went pretty easy. I am only doing the basics right now but its a start. I was actually able to get all my icons done. Wow a complete theme every thing matches!!

    How did you get to your themes? (which folder do you go into)

    Ok this is from memory, but I'll try. Root-Private-Var-Stash-Themes. If this is wrong and no one corrects me I'll check when I get home tonight and repost.

    I think that is for using the open SSH option but is it the same for the iPhone folders option?
    11-24-2009 12:19 PM
  23. Hack-My-i's Avatar
    Yes its the same

    Okay, so I did not install SSH on my jailbroken 3GS, but SBsettings has a toggle for SSH?

  25. sargd66's Avatar
    I think the toggle just comes with sbsettings you can just go into the more settings and turn it off. Just go into Cydia check in programs look under the R and see if openssh is installed. If it is remove it
