Thanks. THere was quite a bit of stuff it was hanging on. Not sure I got it all: Checking catalog heirchy filesystem was modified checking catalog file checking multilinked files busy watchdog timeout error, no successful firmware sandbox, ignoring builtin profile for platform app /usr/sbin/BTServer Ideas? I did some searches and there was an older version on redsnow for 4.2.1 that included a ssh bundle. If they had one for the newer firware I could install it and have ssh access! darn. Doesn't help me since I'm on 4.3.2, but there would be a necessary tool!
