    I don't know if this is necessarily "cool" but using SSH you can backup your music from your iPod/iPhone to your computer. Comes in handy since I feel like I'm always on a new operating system that needs some good music.

    access and modify all system files. you could edit ANY file you want. cool huh?
    copying files is VERY slow though, dont do it unless you need to. it took 6 hours for me to copy a 500 mb file.
    SSH is really handy when you have to edit .plists or putting a theme in.

    You could copy music files to the device, but they wouldn't show up in the Music Player.

    I find checking out the numerous themes and working out the details on favorite themes occupies a considerable amount of my time, right now. I am interested in getting icons to look better, as well.

    I move things IN and OUT for making minor changes, to check out how they look.

    There are some easy changes to make, some more satisfying than others.

    Really?? It would take me less then 30 minutes to transfer a 500 megabyte file. it usually transfers at a rate of 800 kb/s - 1200 kb/s for me.

    Anyway I like to modify games with SSH.

    Code:
    find . -name "appname.app"
    /private/var/mobile/Applications/XXXXXXXX/appname.app
    now that you can find the games files you can edit them. Its pretty fun, it passes the time.
