Seriously, you have to see this ssh app:

Great app. Just needs better documentation like howto disable root's default password and/or disable password logins completely.
Ssh key management is great.

I second Pavel.. Does not work on my Nexus :-( But boy when it does :-)

... if you set things up once then it just works (tm) ! Reliably and very neat with remote-shutdown option via the broadcasts ! Thanks ! Just hope it will survive the 5.0 changes (in root mode).

Works great. However, it is not obvious how to work with keys. To import an existing key from a Linux system, copy the key to the Android device, then use the menu item to manage keys. Press the "search" icon, NOT the + icon, then browse for the key. Using the + icon does something else, but doesn't import a key. The author should provide better documentation for the Pro app.

It contains a busybox. But it would better if it can be chosen to use the busybox (and the symbol linked commands) that are already installed in the system, and avoid installing the redundant busybox.

Great way to get files to and fro. I'm a Linux user, so this is a great way to sideload files onto my device.

SELinux on lollipop prevents dropbear/sshd from running as root. Disable SELinux by adding this as line 2 to /data/data/berserker.android.apps.sshdroid/dropbear/dropbear : setenforce Permissive

SSHDroid is an essential Android app for users on a LAN, particularly those interested in transferring files to/from GNU/Linux systems via scp/sftp. Remote login to an Android device via ssh is also very useful for file management.

People need to understand that this app not working may not be the developers fault. If your phone has a SELinux kernel it can limit remote ttys for root or all users (among other things) which depends on the security policy in place. If your kernel is ENFORCING, this app probably won't work for you, you need a PERMISSIVE kernel (no UUID restrictions).

Works as expected, runs in the background without any need for root privileges (some files and folders are denied access then of course). I use it to perform automated backups from certain files on my Android systems using ssh & rsync. Didn't work anymore after upgrading to Lollipop, but that's fixed with the update now!

No cables, sshdroid + WinSCP (PC) make the best experience without touching a cable
