Is it possible to JB my 3GS and just install SSH?

    Just got my 3GS and was wondering if anyone knows how to install SSH onto it. The best hacks like adblocking and removing the Contacts icon are just SSH hacks and don't require Cydia.

    I think you can't. In order to SSH to the iPhone you need a SSH server on it which can be installed only on a JB iPhone. There is no JB for the 3GS yet and I would not expect it very soon. (> 1 - 2 months).

    On 2.0 was there a way to JB without installing Cydia and all it's extra libraries and folder structure and just skip all that and just install SSH? It just occured to me that in PwnageTool it is possible to uncheck both Cydia and Installer and check SSH Server in the Cydia packages screen but I don't know if that would work without Cydia.

    In any case, there is no JailBreak at all for the 3GS. At least not now. We have to wait that the dev team works on it. Until then, you can forget Cydia, ssh or any pwn tool.

    Yes, but what if there's an update to the package? Without Cydia, you won't be able to install it.

    But as Tex mentioned, it's all moot anyhow since there's no jailbreak for the 3Gs...yet. :)
