When I jailbroke my iPhone, I had installed SSH. I have no need for it and would like t know how I would go about removing this from my phone.

Is it the SSH 'switch' icon / application you want to remove, or the SSH service?

If it's the former - You can do it via SSH (ironically). Just renaming the file will do.

ssh in with puTTY or a terminal and type:

mv /Applications/SSH.app /Applications/SSH.zap

go to download.com and download puTTY

turn on wifi on your phone

find the phone's IP address from the settings - Wifi menu in the iPhone (click on the little blue arrow next to your connection)

open putty - connect to that IP address

connect as 'root' - password 'alpine'

type:

mv /Applications/SSH.app /Applications.zap

reboot the phone - and it will be gone. (The SSH application that is)

Login Name: root
password: alpine
yep, sorry. Couldn't remember how puTTY connects. I think you enter the host address(ip address) and click open or connect or something then the black terminal screen appears with the prompt "connect as:"

Not used putty for a while, may have changed though
