    i was just wondering would it be possible ( i have no experience in these things) to create an icon in the top right (like the play icon that only appears when a song is playing) to appear when ssh is connected?
    it wouldnt really serve that much purpose i was just wondering if it is possible coz id like one

    ya, iSlsk has it so ssh should too you would have to download something that someone would make that it tells your ipod to show this icon on the status bar when ssh is running. it doesnt seem like it would be too difficult

    yeha i know and with nes.
    any ideas as to how to go about it though?
    i would imagine it would mean creating an icon in /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app
    presumably called something like Default_SSH_ON.png (im basing this on the fact that the gprs indicator is called Default_GPRS_ON.png

    how would i set it to only appear when ssh is connected though

    if u use open ssh, then it's always on, so you may aswell just stick a permaent icon there..

    basicly i was saying i know that ssh is always on unless you turn it off, i dont want an icon to tell me when ssh is on, i want an icon to tell me when ssh is connected to a computer.
