Connect to your BB10 device through ssh
Create session using blackberry-connect, this tool resides inside your SDK dirs, the host dir i.e
$(BBSDK)/host_10_0_9_404/darwin/x86/usr/bin/blackberry-connect
$ blackberry-connect 169.254.0.1 -password <password> -sshPublicKey ~/.ssh/bb10/id_rsa
Then,
create a config file inside ~/.ssh folder
Host bb10
HostName 169.254.0.1
User devuser
IdentityFile ~/.ssh/bb10/id_rsa
$ ssh bb10
DONE!
@rischanlab

can you help me about my problem?

Rischans-MacBook:bin macintosh$ ./blackberry-connect 169.254.0.1 -password rischan -sshPublicKey /Users/macintosh/.ssh/id_rsa.pub

@rischanlab

solved => use -b 4096
ex : ssh-keygen -t rsa -C "rischanlab@gmail.com" -b 4096

@radhoo

You can generate the keys with putty as well, while keeping the same key length, that is 4096. A detailed guide is available here: http://www.pocketmagic.net/2013/07/ssh-to-the-blackberry-z10-guide/
Just an alternative in case anyone needs it.

@dgburr

I think that the command should be:

blackberry-connect 169.254.0.1 -password -sshPublicKey ~/.ssh/bb10/id_rsa.pub

And not:

blackberry-connect 169.254.0.1 -password -sshPublicKey ~/.ssh/bb10/id_rsa

Since you need to send the public key to the device, but the local machine should use the private key
