    I know the default password is alpine, and I don't THINK I set my iPod up with a password.
    It keeps saying Access Denied. What can I do..?

    Tried.
    root and alpine don't work.
    I don't remember changing my password, I've never even used MobileTerminal (I have it though).
    Yes, SSH is turned on.

    I can't do crap =[

    Yes.
    Settings > Wifi > My connection.

    IP Address: 192.168.1.2 (I don't care if people know that, it's a default address. nothing can happen with it unless they were on my network.)

    try using isutal to WinSCP to your ipod using the usb

    to see if it is a password problem or ip adrees problem

    Is there any way to recover this? I could swear I've never changed it before.
