    So they are still picking on the SSH default password issue?
    Im sorry but if someone has enough knowledge to jailbreak their phone, enable SSH, download apps that REQUIRE SSH to be on and still not secure their phone more fool them.

    The problem is, as good as the iPhone is its soooo much better and has sooo much more useability once jailbroken!

    Apple are onto a great thing forcing people to use the appstore but there is so much more that it restricts!
