    Ok, so i install the new java source and go to refresh my souces

    My itouch stays at 50% of the bar when refreshing, turns black (lock) and then when i push the home button it starts all over again.

    I was wondering what the directory is in winscp with the sources in it so i can just remove the source, or if there is any other way to fix the problem. thanks.

    Go to Settings > Wi-Fi and turn off Wi-Fi. Then open Installer - it won't be able to refresh the sources at all. You can then just jump into the Sources and delete whichever one is causing problems.

    Otherwise, you can SFTP into your iPod Touch, go to the var/root/Library/Installer/ folder and look for the PackageSources.plist. Download the file to your computer, BACK IT UP, open it a text editor, yank the source (everything between the <dict></dict> tags), the put it back on the iPod Touch. I think the settings are 644 but I'm not 100% sure...
