These are step by step instructions on how to install BSD Subsystem on your iPhone. BSD Subsystem is required before installing many other applications and patches and therefore should be the first package you install on your newly jailbroken iPhone.

Step One
Launch Installer by pressings its icon on your SpringBoard.


Step Two
Press to select the Install tab at the bottom of the screen


Step Three
Press to select System from the list of Categories.


Step Four
Press to select the BSD Subsystem package from the list of System packages.


Step Five
Press the Install button at the top right of the screen.


Step Six
Press the large Install button that appears.


Step Seven
A Notice will appear telling you not to use passwd in 1.1.3. Click the large OK button.


Step Eight
Once the installation is complete you will be returned to the Categories List.



After finishing the BSD Subsystem install you will most likely want to install OpenSSH from System category if it hasn't been installed already.
