    Except its not really an Application, its an addition to the UNIX files in your phone's OS. Some applications like MobileFinder require them.

    Dont get rid of BSD if you ever plan on SSHing or sFTPing into your phone. Just use Services to turn off SSH when you don't need it, that noticeably saves on battery life.

    Anyone had any progress on uninstalling BSD subsystem? I am a bit short on memory on 1.1.1 (35MB) so would value the space. And a restore is not an option... as BSD is needed to reactivate at the moment!

    Appreciate any pointers on how to get rid of this beastie

    if you can get a listing of files installed which I'm sure can be found somewhere, then you could probably manually uninstall by removing the files that where installed. I don't really see the point in uninstalling as it's only about 6MB and is very useful to have. If security is a concern, changing the root password should be more than enough.

    tony,

    thanks for your help; actually I am willing to remove based in 2 things:

    1) my iphone is consuming much more battery life than it used to; I am willing to try this out;
    2) i cannot send mails, even when my smpt server is correct; i read this can be a firewall problem and that i should "open the 587 port", the one that sends mail; my configurations seems to be ok since I can receive mails, just can`t send em. And then I just think BSD Susystem might have something to do with it.

    What do you think?

    tks again

    problems with poor battery life are well known with 1.1.1 firmware. Do a google search about battery life & 1.1.1 firmware to find out more.
    As for your e-mail problems, are you still having sending problems on different wi-fi connections? Or is it only for a certain wi-fi connection? How about while connected via edge? I doubt your e-mail issues have anything to do with any of the bsd files. It's more likely to be problems with your network settings. I'd try to troubleshoot your issue by trying to send email on different networks and network types and go from there. Good luck

    Installer doesn't scan filesystem to learn which apps get installed. Instead, it records every piece of package it installs so as to uninstall it later. In case you install BSD Subsystem w/o using Installer, Installer will never get to know there's a BSD Subsystem existed, hence you have to remove it manually (although I highly doubt such a need).

    Here's a script I write to remove the BSD Subsystem v1.5 completely out of your iPhone.

    http://r_a_p_i_d_s_h_a_r_e.com/files...d_by_n000b.zip
    (remove the underscores in the above URL)

    To use it, you gotta use SSH or MobileTerminal. Upload the script to iPhone and put it at / (root), then enter the following command in SSH or MobileTerminal:
    Code:
    cd /  (you *must* be at root!)
    /bin/sh ./removebsd.sh
    It'll remove all things coming with BSD Subsystem v1.5, except the following fiels:
    Code:
    /bin/chmod
    /bin/rm
    /bin/sh
    /usr/lib/libarmfp.dylib
    Reboot after that.

    Check the script to learn which files are removed. Use at your own risk!
