Can't Install openSSH on iPhone- Help...
I thought I would give modding a try and I seem to be having a bit of trouble right out of the gate. I followed the guide located under the "Guides" menu on this site. Starting with step 1, I ensured that I have the latest iPhone firmware (1.0.2) and the most recent iTunes version.
I was able to install the Installer.app on my iPhone and the Community Source and BSD Subsystems but when I try to install the openSSH app. I receive the following error message:
"Package file size mismatch"
The version of openSSH I am trying to install is 4.61-1; is there a newer version of this I should be trying to install? If so, how do I get it on my iPhone and where do I download it from?
Finally, my iPhone is "locked"; does this matter? Should I unlock it first? The Guide on this site didn't mention unlocking the iPhone before doing any of this...
Any help would be greatly appreciated as I would like to give this a try.
P.S. I'm using Max OS X on a Mac Mini

Just keep trying to install OpenSSH despite the "mismatch" prompt (may be your signal isn't optimal?). This happens to a few of the files the Installer tries to download, at least in my case. But they eventually installed. Good luck!

I have exactly the same problem here...
I had try to install it many times without success, also I share my MacBook Pro connection in order to asure an optimal connection to the iPhone WiFi, nothing works.
Is there any other way to install those apps?

I have the same problem. OpenSSH doesn't even show up in apptap. Is there another way to install it?

I installed SSH from iNdependence and could login using root and dottie. I was able to upload the unlock app and run it. Success!!!
For what it's worth, after the 20 minute unlock process I went back into the Installer app and OpenSSH had re-appeared.

you have to install community services which you will find in your app tapp. Then all the other programs that are available will show up including SSH
