    Sorry i tried searching I couldnt find..

    1. I never use SSH cause it wont work for me, i always use ibrickr to add/move around files.

    2. What are these bsd subsystem and openSSH files? Do I need them if I never use SSH? What is BSD subsystem used for? Btw, I have summerboard with themes, bunch of apps, etc. with no problem so in other words not having it hasnt really prevented me from doing anything yet.

    Thanks in advance.

    Some programs require you to have it, so I guess you're A-Ok until you get the notice, then its up to you whether you wish to download it or not.

    Well I think one reason your SSH might not work is because you don't have openSSH installed ><.

    Let me just clarify that you don't actually use it to download things, just to run some programs.
