    Hi guys,

    So i installed 2.0.1 and used Pwnage tool 2.0.2 and everything was ok initially. It was a little slow for some reason so i decided to reinstall the firmware. 2nd time around when i tried to install OpenSSH from Cydia, i get an error that t cannot be located and that i may need to install more sources.

    I didn't do anything different from the first time around and don't know what to do. I even tried reinstalling but that didn't help as well.

    Can someone please help me out?! An alternative method to SSH in?

    I use a mac btw.

    Thank you for your time and help.

    Cheers.

    Yea, thats what i did and thankfully that worked.

    I'm still wondering as to why it happened though!

    Thanks again.

    Cheers.

    When you pwn on n00b mode it must automatically set cydia to n00b mode too, which filters out non-gui apps like OpenSSH. You could have just changed a setting in Cydia but oh well.

    When you download Open SSH in Cydia is there supposed to be an icon of SSH on your dock?

    No. SSH is not a GUI application. It is a service on your phone to allow you to connect to it remotely using a computer.
