    Can anyone tell me if it's a significant power savings to turn off Open SSH? I've seen some threads here saying that you can do that with the one touch jailbreak. However, I used the Touchfree application to jailbreak. I don't think that provided any access to turn SSH off. Does it? Would it be advisable to just remove SSH from my Touch now that I've got the iPhone apps on and working? I don't want to restore and re-jailbreak since I've got everything the way I want it. Let me know what you guys think.

    yes, ive heard it consumes alot of battery. go to the Installer.app right on your iPoT, go to All Packages, then scroll down to one called Services.

    download it, then exit out of Installer.app .

    your springboard will restart, slide to unlock it, and a new icon will be there called Services, obviously. Open that up, and it will have SSH, press where the slider says On, and it will switch to Off. there you go, and when you wanna SSH into your iPoT, dont forget to turn SSH back on.

    *with this you wont need to restore your iPoT or anything.

    t0bse,

    Are you saying there's a problem? Is it the two SSH's showing up?

    Sorry if my question was already asked but what is the use of SSH ?
    Does it is only for downloading apps or do we need it to run the apps too ?
