    I finally jailbroke 3.0 using redsn0w on my 3G today and have been given a message saying "Remote host identification has changed" when trying to SSH using the same settings as on 2.2. Has something changed/does something extra need installing on 3.0 in order to SSH? I am using Fugu on a Mac

    The ssh-rsa key fingerprint has changed. The key verifies the server that you are connecting to by comparing that key on the iphone to the one saved on your computer, so say if someone creates a server that tries to pretend being your iphone, you would get this error. Of course you also get this message when say you upgrade ssh or do an OS restore or upgrade and thus would need to generate a new key.

    Since you upgraded, you need to ditch your key on your end and get a new one. So go to Preferences in Fugu, then Known Hosts and delete the rsa key for your iphone, which judging from your screenshot, would be 192.168.1.104 Then next time you connect it will authenticate and generate you a new key and you will from then on connect like normal.
