    SSHDroid is a SSH server implementation for Android.
    This application will let you connect to your device from a PC and execute commands (like "terminal" and "adb shell") or edit files (through SFTP, WinSCP, Cyberduck, etc...).

    If you like this application, you can consider supporting it by upgrading to the pro version with more feature like:
    - Extended notification controls
    - Homescreen and lockscreen widget
    - Shared-key authentication
    - WiFi autostart whitelist
    - Automation with intents support
    - AdFree

    q: How can I access to my device once the application is running?
    Windows users:
    - File Transfer: WinSCP (
    - Remote Shell: PuTTY (

    Linux users:
    - File Transfer: natively supported by most file managers (like Nautilus or Dolphin), just enter the sftp address displayed as "Location".
    - Remote Shell: run 'ssh' from the terminal.

    Mac users:
    - File Transfer: Cyberduck (
    - Remote Shell: run 'ssh' from the terminal

    q: How can I upgrade to the pro version?
    a: If you previously purchased SSHDroidPro on Google Play, the new version will automatically detect it and upgrade to pro otherwise you can unlock it as in-app purchase.

    q: Why my transfer speed decrease when I turn off the screen?
    a: Enable the option 'Lock Wifi'. If your device is running at least Android 2.3.x, you should get full speed transfer even when the screen is off, otherwise enable the option 'Lock screen' too.

    q: How can I use a shared key with Putty/Winscp?
    a: You have to generate a key from the application in OpenSSH format and use Puttygen to import/convert it in ppk format. A recent version of Puttygen (>= 0.61) is required!

    q: Is root required to run this application?
    a: root is optional but not required.

    q: How can I automate the application start/stop?
    Use the following broadcast intents:

    Unlock this feature! Pay just $49 and get (constructive) criticism from a user. (this is not a review, this is a satire on, and a message to app author)

    Without root: read only With root: can't even sign in Quite useless

    Can't use desktop keys. Won't let me set sdcard as the target directory. Waste of $2.
