    Does the iPhone OS have a cron daemon? If so, a perl script could be written to install SSH and invoked by cron at some pre-determined time. This should allow someone running 1.0.2 to upgrade to 1.1.1 and then have SSH restored by the cron job. This would obviously open the flood gates again and there wouldn't be the need to decrypt the 1.1.1 disk image.

    Does anyone know if the cron daemon is enabled? I am running the 1.0.2 version and a guick ps -aux | grep cron does return a process.

    Now, this is theory mind you and I am too much of a wuss to try it as I am enjoying life in 1.0.2 land :) Anyone out there want to give this a try?

    There is no cron daemon, and even if there were, any cron job that you create would be removed during the update.
