    I jailbroke my phone today and gave it a whirl. Even changed the root password as per the online instructions.

    I've since decided to go back to a normal, un-jailbroken phone by restoring everything.

    In doing so, does that restore the root password back to what it was, or is it still set to what I changed it to earlier today?

    I was under the impression that if you kept SSH turned off, you are safe. Is this incorrect?

    Yes, or if u don't install openssh.
    The password is reset to default with every restore.

    That was going to be my next question dgstan so good call on that one!
    I had a feeling that was the case (doesn't matter if not running SSH), but I wasn't sure. The only reason I had SSH on my jailbreak was to run terminal between my phone and my iMac to change the root password so....in the end, kind of stupid - for me anyway!

    I feel somewhat safer now that I've reversed the jailbreak but I do miss LockInfo and SBSettings.

    Hmmm.....

    Sorry for the newbie question, but how do you keep SSH off?

    I toggle it using SBSettings.

    I notice that if you toggle SSH off in SBSettings and reboot, it gets turned back on.
