    Question Do I need BSD Subsytem to run OpenSSH?

    That is the last thing I need to simplify the REALLY ULTIMATE TUTORIAL even more!!

    Here http://gizmodo.com/gadgets/top/short...one-300323.php
    says:
    OpenSSH installs the program that lets you connect onto the iPhone remotely, and BSD Subsystem gets you some command line tools on the phone itself to do some file manipulation.

    From that I take I don't need BSD subsystem.

    i think it's like this:
    BSD gives you the shell and some other command line stuff BUT you need openssh to connect remotely.
    openssh lets you connect to iphone remotely & securely.

    if you don't need to connect remotely, the you can install terminal. But what good is it if there's no command line tools so you need BSD

    install via appInstaller on springboard. you need
    1- bsd
    2 - community sources (for openssh to show up)
    3 - openssh.

    EDIT: i don't know if you need BSD to get shell prompt. Have to look inside the package again.

    I don't need no command line to upload files with WinSCP..that is the thing.
    But the installer ask for BSD before letting you install OpenSSH.

    So I think the installer relies on BSD to install the OpenSSH but OpenSSH doesn't need the BSD to work.
