so instead of that last line where you type "ssh root@ ..."
open nautilus (aka "files" sometimes)
in the left hand pane at the bottom you will see "connect to server"
click on this and a dialog pops up
for server address, type ssh://root@ and click connect.
And you can now treat all your phone files as though they were on a
disk plugged into your computer.
