    If you do jailbreak it then you have to Pwn it in Expert Mode to be able to install OpenSSH.

    Serious. You can't use quick pwn to install openssh???

    I've used iphonebrowser with my quickpwn'd 3g before, what does openssh give me over iphone browser?

    The main advantage of an SSH program from what I can tell is the ability to run Terminal commands.

    ^^Yea, it should be available on Cydia.

    Comes in handy for manually replacing files (system sounds, etc.).
