Hi. I would also love to see SSHelper (and the author’s other Android apps at http://arachnoid.com/android/) appear in F-Droid. Has anyone tried contacting him to see if he would be happy to setup git repositories? I’m happy to do so if no-one else has.
* SSHelper is an ssh/sftp/scp/rsync server utility for ARM-powered devices running Android.
* SSHelper is compatible with Android version 11 and later and is targeted for version 13.
* SSHelper has been tested primarily on a Motorola Xoom and works as intended on various devices down to a 320×480 display size typical of small Android phones.
* SSHelper is meant primarily for WiFi-equipped devices but will work with any available network connection.
* SSHelper runs as an application or as a background service to minimize resource use.
* SSHelper is avaialble as an installation-ready APK file, plus a source archive (this archive).
* SSHelper is licensed under the GPL: http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/gpl.html
* Create an Eclipse project and import the source from this directory.
* Missing from this archive, solely to reduce download size, are the following source packages:
All the above packages were cross-compled to run on the ARM platform and statically linked. Dropbear was compiled using the static and multi-binary flags (STATIC=1 MULTI=1) to create a single, unified binary of all its components. OpenSSH was compiled as separate components and only the sftp-server component was used.
Once the ARM binaries are prepared and located as described above, the compilation shouild be uneventful.
