This for sure looks interesting, there’s even sign that native binaries are built from source ;-).May 21, 2012 at 10:38 pm #1992
I would really love that,, one problem is that it requires Android 3.2 API so it won’t work for many people unless that can be fixed easily.August 16, 2012 at 9:43 am #3089
For those who have Android < 3.2, perhaps, another submitted SSH server frontend will turn out to be a working solution: http://f-droid.org/forums/topic/dropbearserver-joelpets-fork/ .August 16, 2012 at 10:13 am #3094

Source in an archive.August 17, 2012 at 1:29 am #3117
What does “Source in an archive” mean?
Has the submission been declined? Why? What should be improved?August 18, 2012 at 8:25 am #3141
We only accept source in git,svn,hg,srclib,bzr for the moment.October 26, 2012 at 3:20 pm #4822
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.October 26, 2012 at 4:17 pm #4824
SSHelper is copyright 2011, P. lutus. Its home page is http://arachnoid.com/android/SSHelper.
* 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:
1. dropbear-0.53.1, available at https://matt.ucc.asn.au/dropbear
2. openssh-5.9p1, available at http://www.openssh.com
3. openssl-1.0.0e, available at http://www.openssl.org/
4. busybox-1.19.2, available at http://busybox.net
5. rsync-3.0.9, available at http://www.samba.org/ftp/rsync
6. The free version of the CodeSourcery ARM cross-compiler, available at https://sourcery.mentor.com/sgpp/lite/arm/portal/subscription?@template=lite. Choose your platform and other requirements.
* Item (1) in the above list was modified extensively, the changes are provided as patch file dropbear.patch solely to reduce download size.
* Item (2) in the above list was modified slightly, the changes are provided as patch file sftp-server.patch solely to reduce download size.
* Item (3) in the above list is linked to item (2) and has no other role.
* The remainder of the packages were compiled from source unchanged.
* Each binary was then gzipped, renamed and placed in the source tree as shown here:
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.December 28, 2012 at 10:40 pm #5575
Binaries could be built with NDK. Unless we ever support cross compilation.February 8, 2013 at 6:24 pm #5994
I am also interested in SSHelper.January 1, 2014 at 4:02 am #9983
I’ve been using it with the APK, works good other than some minor issues.
Thanks for F-droid guys, good work.
