    Via Installer.app install BSD Subsystem and then SSH Server/Client. You can then sftp into the iPhone as the root user (default password is dottie). You might want to change that once you have enabled SSH w/ a public key ;)

    on 1.1.4 installer does not let install BSD subsyem. is it question of waiting for another update or something?

    You need to install Community Sources first, I think it is under Sources.

    What is the FTP address for the phone? I have the NES emulator on there and roms, but I don't know how to get the roms onto the phone

    Settings, Wifi, blue arrow to network, then you will see the IP address.
    Also password for 1.1.3 and beyond is now alpine I believe

    Does Cyberduck support SFTP? I thought it supported FTP only.
