    Ok, Im following this excellent tutorial:

    http://www.hacktheiphone.com/iphone_install_sftp_client_mac.html

    and Ive done it successfully once before, but since the 1.0.2 update, obviously I have to do it again.

    Im on step 13:

    In the Terminal type: ssh -l root (YOUR IP) Enter your password when prompted and press enter. Type: cd /usr/libexec (etc...)

    but everytime I press "spacebar" inbetween "cd" and "/usr/libexec" terminal disconnects from the iphone IP!

    Am I doing something really stupid and wrong? I cant figure out why spacebar after cd makes it disconnect.

    *edit - As it turns out, its not the space that makes it disconnect - its entering a third character. I can enter two characters, but a third character kicks me off...

    @.@
