    Hi guys...As you know, you need OpenSSH to SSH into your iDevice....But there is also the SSH option under SBSettings......Do I still need OpenSSH on my device if I have SBSettings, to turn on and off SSH?

    Thanx in advance.

    Think of it this way, OpenSSH is the doorway for your iPod Touch/iPhone. If you don't have the SBSettings toggle, the door is just left ajar and always accessible. If you have the SBSettings toggle, then the door now has a door knob, meaning you can easily close and open it. If you take away the OpenSSH/door the doorknob doesn't do anything.

    In short, if you want to be able to SSH into your iPod, leave OpenSSH installed.
