Re: installing SSH on iphone...easy instructions?

Here's what you get when you follow the link above: "You're an idiot! Don't trust Web2.0 with your iPhone! You'll lose everything" Then you are taken to a "flame site" that says other phones are better. Helpful? I don't think so. If you want to use SSH, go get a copy of "Unix for Mac" (ISBN 0-7646-3730-X) Wiley 2003 to figure out the Unix bits to begin your exploration of the iPhone. There are also several sites engaged in hacking the iPhone, many of which use SSH as a part of the process.

Re: installing SSH on iphone...easy instructions?

Nliwilson, "end users simply do not want/have the time to learn an OS in depth and why should they?" Thank you, it's about time someone said it! It makes no sense to advise end-users to lern *NIXes indepth when what end-users want is a solution they can understand without 2-3 months of self training, does take you to a secure SSH portal that does the job and is not a threat to your phone. Mac users are used to things just working & thats exactly as things should be, I know this can be hard to get your head around if your a Microstress Windoze user because you have absolutely no basis for comparison, but non-Microsoft OS's actualy do what they claim to without all the hassle and work involved in getting Windoze to do anythig all the way through. The point about security is well made, don't apply Windoze securty issues to an OS that actualy does what it's supposed to.

Iphone stuck logo

Without having installed openssh, there's no way for you to go in and correct the issue without your iPhone booting correctly. Sounds like you'll have to restore and reacquire your files. App store files should still be available. I'd recommend using the Cydia tweak pkgbackup to backup your cydia files as well.

I have a blackberry, how do I get my Internet going? It's on yellow and Can't get my Internet To work? Tried going to

I assume you have a BB data plan, are emails coming in like normal?

What OS are you running on your phone?

have you tried clearing the browser cache?

pull the battery for 30 seconds and put it back in, see if that helps.

Is it every web page or just specific ones?
  • Run BES-required Internet software without BES!
  • Instant Messaging, AIM, ICQ, MSN (Verichat, WebMessenger, BerryVine, IM+, etc.)
  • Full HTML web browsing ability (Reqwireless, BlackBerry Browser, etc.)
  • IRC chatting (virca, wlirc, etc.)
  • telnet/ssh (Idokorro, etc.)
  • No BES needed! No MDS needed!
Easy 1-2-3 Instructions:
  1. Upgrade your BlackBerryOS
    You need BlackBerry with OS 3.8 or later. If you have an older version of BlackBerryOS, please Download BlackBerryOS 4.0 and install it on your BlackBerry first.
  2. Configure your BlackBerry & Your Carrier
    On the BlackBerry handheld, go to Options -> TCP
    There is a new option in BlackBerryOS 3.8 and later. Then fill in APN with the provided APN listead in the below post, that is appropriate for your carrier. If no username or password is provided, leave these blank. If only a username is provided, then leave in the password. Also, ignore the Gateway IP address, unless your Blackberry specifically has a textbox to enter the IP address in. "APN" means "Access Point Name". Once you have saved the APN information, you should reboot your BlackBerry by removing and reinserting the battery.
  3. Run your BlackBerry Internet Software
    Once you have filled this information, your Internet applications should work on your BlackBerry. TCP/IP makes Internet software work, including chat software: Verichat, WebMessenger, IRC, Telnet/SSH, Web browsing, etc.
Occasionally, some applications on the BlackBerry need to have the gateway or APN information entered directly into them. This is not common.

I have iphone 3g version 4.1 i wont to unlock it

You can try to use "tinyUmbrella" to see if cydia has you ssh on file..
tinyumbrella website

once you start the software you click the button save my ssh..

once it's done processing you can click on start tss server

This tss server will allow you to bypass itunes server which restricts downgrading firmware...

Once Tss server is running you can start itunes

once itunes detects your iphone shift + click on restore

Select the iphone 3g 4.0.1 firmware (goto to download this)

Once it restores fully at the end it will give itunes error '1015'

dont worry..

Install Libusb if you dont have it..(Click here)
after installing libusb just use this program.. ih8snow
Click on "Fix recovery mode loop"

Click on yes to "do you have libusb installed??"

Select iphone 3g from the list

your iphone will reboot..

now you can first activate it ..

then you can use safari to goto
slide the slider at the bottom...

it will download cydia

when cydia is installed you have to add "" as a source
Its a zero "0" in the sn0w not "o"...

Search google how to add new sources.. to cydia..

Once you are done installing the application inside the source your phone will be finally unlocked..

Of course easier way out would be to pay someone who knows how to do this..

You have to restore your iphone to factory settings. then you must re jailbreak your iphone to get cydia and the installer app on there. After install the SMS program and make sure you dont delete the original SMS program that came with the iPhone. I suggest you download poof! and just hide the SMS app that came with the Iphone.

It is difficult for me to completely understand your problem. What version of firmware are you running? Do you have multi-pages enabled with Summerboard? If not, new apps you install will push other apps (like off your main page.

To fix this quickly, you will need to ssh into your phone to change the plist data and move to the front of your list. Then, install summerboard to get multi pages enabled.

If you don't know what ssh is, then you'll need to:
restore your phone completely to 1.1.3 using itunes
download ziphone from
run ziphone -j

now you'll be fixed.

Iphone touch screen

Hello, Have you tried resetting the iPhone? Hold the main round button on the front in while also holding the small button on top of the unit in. Hold these both in until you see the screen change or it shuts down completely.
