I have a question to the OP. When you go into terminal and try to log on to your iPhone. Are you allowed to login?
In other words. When you go into terminal. Type this and replace the "xx.x.x.x" with your ip address on the iPhone:
NOTE: You will not see the password as you type it. Don't worry, it's there.
If performed correctly you should receive a prompt on the terminal that looks like this(Where you see Phoenix-stu below. It will have the name of your device.)
This means you are logged in.
My question is
1. Does it allow you to log on from there or does it give you an error with a bunch of lines of text?

as soon as i type in:
then after about a minute it gives me the message
Operation timed out
does not even ask me for a password or anything

Try this. Try to uninstall openssh from cydia. Reeboot your phone, install it again, reboot and try to use the terminal command again.
Let me know if that works.

The only thing that I can think of at this point is that you try to manually enter all of the information into the appropriate boxes.
1. In Cyberduck, Click on the "open connection" button on the top left.
2. When the box appears, replace the x's with your ip
3. Make sure you are on port 22
4. Make sure you have it set to SFTP at the top.
5. Enter root
6. Enter password.
Try it again and let me know if it works.

Well. I tried a few things. Do you have the ssh toggle switch installed?
I just installed it last night and it gave me problems. It would initially turn it off however, when I tried to turn it back on. I got connection problems.
I uninstalled it and all is working fine.

hi, i had a similar problem as well
what i did and it seemed to help was to change the password of my iphone through terminal then use the new password in cyber duck
to change the password enter:
when logged in in terminal and follow the steps
then open up cyber duck go through the normal process but use the username: root
and password: what ever u set it to
let me now if that works

i found out that my ipod and my mac have different ip addresses when connected. i hear that they have to be the same but how can i change them to make them the same?
my mac is running through airport and not connected directly to a router if that helps.
