    Well, you can SSH just about anything in or out

    You can edit .js, .css and .plist files to make the phone do just about anything

    Just be careful when you overwrite original system files, I would back them up before you overwrite them.

    Can you do anything via SSH on a jailed phone other than manage photos and use general storage (which you can do in Windows anyway)??

    WinSCP isn't even connecting to my non-jailbroken 3GS. Guessing I'd need to jb if I want to get in there and start tweaking files and such?

    Yes, you cant use SSH unless your phone is jailbroken and you have installed OpenSSH thru Cydia.

    What program do you guys use on your computer to ssh your phone? I downloaded Cyberduck to my Mac and synced with my phone with no problem. Now I don't know what to do next. Any suggestions before I jump in and mess anything up?

    Not sure what you are asking. Try reading just about every thread here. Chances are everything mentioned here can be done with SSH.

    I often use ssh on my phone to log in to the central computer, reboot the security system that runs the electric fences and lock the doors before the velociraptors get in.

    Ringtones!

    You can download ringtones from your computer. I would use RealPlayer to get videos off of YouTube. To do this:

    1.) Download ANYTHING you would like as a ringtone, make sure it can be changed to .m4a format.

    2.) SSH into your phone via WinSCP or DiskAid, and travel to the Library->Ringtones directory.

    3.)Change the file you want as your ringtone to the .m4a format, to do this, simply rename the file. If you can't rename the file, go to folder options and make sure that file extensions are shown.

    4.)Simply clicky clicky, draggy draggy, and you have your new ringtone! :D
