Good tutorial, it is one of the first you see when you google SSH iPhone. However, the threats to jailbroken iPhones/iPod touches with OpenSSH installed are now very real and very dangerous. Please tell people to change both the root and mobile passwords after installing OpenSSH. You can link to a number of tutorials online, like Secure Your Jailbroken iPhone and Change your Default Password
If you are a user who read this, you should follow that link and change the passwords! Some users’ money was stolen after they failed to do so. It is an open door for criminal hackers.
The whole tutorial is about how to do this in Windows. WinSCP is the SSH client for Windows. It’s a free download. Cydia is a program on jailbroken iPhones.
By the way, don’t forget those passwords…
hello guys. is there any similar way for windows?
Where do you get the password from?
thanks so much! this was a great help. super fast and easy.
