    Hi ,

    I jail broken my ipod touch 2g about a week ago , I try using Cute FTP , Wincsp I cant connect , no matter what I do , I also tried many guides no success.

    I used Unofficalsn0w 2.2.1 jailbreak method so I don't know about enabling this or that.

    I also downloaded OpenSSH and Terminal and I don't know how to use it.

    Please help.

    Now I will only tell you to use WinSCP because it's the only one I've ever used, problem free.

    1. Install OpenSSH from Cydia.
    2. Reboot (Turn your iPod off then back on.)
    3. Open up WinSCP.
    4. For:

    Host name: Type your IP Address (Can be found in Settings>Wifi. Find your network and press on the little blue arrow on the right hand side of it.

    Username: root

    Password: alpine

    Leave everything else as default.

    Click Login. Now, for it's first time connecting it will take a while. Just be patient. Leave it for a while.

    Then a message should come up and there will be an option to 'Update'. Choose the update option.

    It then should connect.

    Good luck.

    Tell me how it goes.

    hi ,

    basically it says ; after a few seconds, no guarantee of who you think it is , then a box appears saying that I got to enter a password.
    I enter alpine again and again and access denied.

    thanks.

    edit; wow i connected again and it worked!
    thanks!
    I wonder why it went wrong ?
    oh well thanks !

    Did you install iTunes 8.2 the other day? If you did, then you should get another SSH program that supports it because 8.2 messes up some programs. Try diskaid.

    i think 8.2 only messes up ssh via usb

    sometimes you need to respring your ipod to get WinSCP to connect

    and sometimes you must be on your springboard ie: NOT LOCKED

    Actually it doesn't mess up the NEW diskaid, so it works.

    Yea, I like diskaid because I am on Mac and it is a good GUI too.
