We've been listening to feedback that there are too many password prompts in the on-device installer and that the dedicated #SSH user is confusing.
* sshd always disabled
* confusing prompts removed
* follow steps in the wiki https://postmarketos.org/ssh to enable sshd and to disable password auth
Shout out to @mobian who is also using the on-device installer, contributed quite a few cool things and always had the dedicated SSH user dialog disabled 👋
