    I can't provide a 100% guarantee, but, in my experience, no legitimate Cydia tweak (the ones that come from the stock/default repos) has ever installed something without the user's knowledge. Yes, there are some tweaks that have what is called dependencies (in that they need another tweak to run properly), but if that is so, you will ALWAYS see a list of what will be installed when you prepare to download. Again, that's legitimate tweaks from verified "safe" Cydia repositories.

    So no, I don't believe OpenSSH can be installed without your knowledge. In fact, most people don't have it installed - it's not needed for the most part. In your case, where you want to use only iFile, you won't need it. And, if you don't install OpenSSH, you don't have to worry about changing your password. There is no access to your jail broken iPad, any more than that of a stock one.

    Again, I trust my jail broken iPad enough that I do Internet banking with it. All jail breaking did was make my iPad more like my computer, in that I can access the files myself. It did not (does not) break the "sand boxing" aspect of the apps that run on the iPad. A file still cannot be accessed from one app by another without your intervention on a jail broke iPad, same as a stock iPad. You still have to use the same precautions I mentioned above to ensure YOU don't give out personal/security info. But, to me, and for right now, this makes the iPad my tool of choice for browsing the Internet (to include banking). Of course, and as always, YMMV.

    You can change your password anyway (once you jail break the iPad), should you wish to, and not install OpenSSH. But, that's up to you.

    Hope this clarifies/reassures.

    It's great that you are being diligent and getting the facts before proceeding. That's always a great approach.

    Just to add my own 2p, you won't be opening yourself up to any serious vulnerabilities by jailbreaking your device. Things cannot / won't get installed without your knowledge, and there is simply no malware in the community or out in the wild which you need to be worried about.

    The IOS jailbreaking community is extremely vigilant. Any issue with any app, tweak, process, or vulnerability which comes to light and threatens jailbreakers has a history of being dealt with immediately, and I can only recall 2 such cases in the last 5 years. Every iPad forum, blog, and website would be plastered with information about it if such a thing was to happen again.

    As I say, it's absolutely right that you find out the facts, but don't get put off by what are often misinformed or downright misleading articles around teh webz. As you can see, the community here is mature, well informed, and trustworthy. We'll be the first to let you (and all our members) know if there is anything to be concerned about.

    Also, SSH is not to be feared
    It is a great service, especially for moving files about to other devices. I normally heartily recommend that jailbreakers install it, but of course that they change their password too! We have a couple of tutorials here - HOW TO - Use Secure Shell (SSH) with the iPad and here - HOW TO - Use SSH for Wireless file transfer

    I'm new to all of this so please excuse me if I get things wrong in posting.

    Where is it that I get resn0w from? If I Google it there seem to be numerous places on the web where it can be downloaded, but I have no idea if any particular site is safe.

    In addition, I note that in the thread from f4780y it says that there is a cost in for Cydia. How much is it, roughly speaking ? Sorry to ask this and hope that's not a question out of line.

    I'm in exactly the same situation as kevlarr.

    Cheers and many thanks for this forum :-)

    Not sure you read my threads correctly

    There is no charge for Cydia. Think of it as the jailbreak App Store. Apps, tweaks, themes, etc. available from Cydia can be either FREE or PAID, just like apps in the Apple App Store.

    redsn0w should only ever be downloaded from the iPhoneDevTeam website. It is linked in every tutorial and thread which we provide here, but so you don't get lost the link is Dev-Team Blog

    You can get redsn0w from the links at the bottom of the first post on the blog.

    Hope that helps.
