    Hi everyone, i have a problem when trying to install OpenSSH app in installer. I installed it the right way, but after I go back and reset my iPod touch the icon nor program is there.So I went back into installer and under "uninstall" to make sure it was downloaded and it was..But still, no icon nor program shows up on my iPod touch. Can someone PLEASEEEEEE tell me what Im doing wrong or help me? I would gladly appreciate it.

    Yes, it is. And therefore it has no icon, because it runs in the background.

    Installing 'Services' will give you a switch to turn it on/off

    Instead of being an asshole he could have just told you that open ssh is what allows you to SSH/FTP into your ipod from your PC. It wont show up on your springboard. While the jailbreak allows you to SSH in sometimes the added OpenSSH app needs to be instaled. Now that you have tried to install it you may need to keep it installed. I had trouble SSH'ing into my iPod when i took it out.

    If you notice, I responded, with more information than you did, and your rudeness just earned you a -rep from me.

    It comes from one of the secure sources that should be in installer by default...

    Conceited Software, I think.

    Do you have that source in your source list? If you do, try refreshing the sources.
