    Hii guys..

    i post rarely but want to ask 3 questions that have been troubling me a lot:

    1: I dont have access to wifi at home. Not at all
    So if i did the jailbreak can i use winterboard directly from my computers net
    and install third party apps (not cra***d apps) using just my comp net and ipod? Can i use cydia?
    How to do so

    2: I took my ipod to college where i was able to access wifi at first.
    after 2 weeks i got a protective shield for its back which is also covering that black wifi region. After that ive been absolutely unable to use wifi
    i get signals from wifinder but am unable to connect.
    is this bcoz of the plastic covering the wifi region?

    3: Quick-freedom didn't work for me
    wen its patching the firmware in the second step it goes up to 50 minutes and still says patching... . and then : Error occurred while patching
    am i doing sumthing wrong
    (i dont connect the ipod to comp wen i start
    do i have to do that)

    Waiting for reply

    Well there is something called the "iNetCable Project" that will allow you to connect to the internet through USB as long as your computer is connected somehow. Through this you can use Cydia and install things normally with no need to transfer files onto the iPod.

    Have you tried taking the cover off and trying to connect again.. That will answer your question better than anyone here can.

    Either try completely again.. i.e download a completely new ISPW from apple and start again or try the other GUI redtool 0.98

    Good luck.

    If you are conencted to the web through a cable then you can use cydia on your iPod this allows you to download themes from cydia and use in winterboard with no actions being taken on the computer apart from setting up the connection.

    If you ever want to make your own themes then its a more complicated process to transfer without WiFi, but otherwise as long as your computer can receive a conection so will your iPod

    whats also pretty nifty is that a companny called orange gagets has created a dongle that will add gps capabilities to your touch. a cool thing to have when not near wifi.
