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.November 25, 2015 at 1:30 pm #18110
Agreed with droope. I’ve installed the APK from the developer’s website. This program is really slick. I’m quite happy with it. It works really well. This needs to get in F-Droid.April 18, 2016 at 3:31 am #19486
SSHelper is good, but I couldn’t make it run on port 22.
It won’t run with root privileges so that my rsync script won’t work because it cannot read all the directories I want to backup.
Other than that, it’s a good app.
