If there is a theme you want to change of a deb file you want to install, this is what you want

Firstly you need a jailbroken device, if you haven't yet jailbroken then look at this thread Complete jailbreak guide

What is "SSH"?

What SSHing your iphone/ipod touch is, is the ability to copy/move files to and from your device, in this Guide I will explain how to use it and how to install it. SSH stands for secure shell and can be use for remote access and executing commands to a computer (or iphone/ipod touch) miles away.



Installation

Windows

There are a number of different SSH programs, personally I use WinSCP found here, installation is completely straightforward and all that is required to install is to run the file "winscp427setup.exe". When install is complete you can leave the program for now.

Mac

I don't own a mac but from what I have looked at a program named "cyberduck" is better than the already built in SSH client bundled with the mac OS, it can be found here

Iphone/Ipod touch

Search on Cydia "OpenSSH" , i program with the above icon will show up download and reboot your idevice (sorry anybody with tethered jailbreaks, just run redsn0w or Blackra1n again)

I recommend having SBsettings as well to turn SSH on and off.

Now run WinSCP. This screen will appear

To find your host name go to settings -> wi-fi tap on the network you are currently using and copy the IP address into the host name box.

For the user-name and password boxes

User-name: root
Password: alpine

When you login you have succesfully SSHed your device

Type ‘login’ command (without quotes) and then press enter. Now type ‘root’ (without quotes) as your login and ‘alpine’ as your current root password. Once you have logged in as root, type ‘passwd’ command (without quotes) again and press enter. It will now prompt you to enter a new password (twice). Simply enter your desired new password again as you did in Step 3 (for changing mobile password) and you should be all fine. It is highly recommended that you change, both your mobile and root passwords to make sure you are completely safe from any outside SSH attack.
