    Hi, I have managed to make, and compile a simple app, but unsure of how to copy it onto my ipod.

    Can someone pease explain it, or point me to a guide where it is covered?
    Thanks

    download SSH via cydia to ur ipod, and get cyberduck if u have a mac or winscp if u are on windows.

    open the app, in the host field u type the ip-adress of ur ipod u can find it out over ur wificonnection).
    in the user field u type "host" and in "apline" in the password field (it's the default password).

    then u have to go in the highest directory, and after that into the Applications folder. There u see all apps on ur ipod touch.

    Now, make a folder called "NAMEOFYOURAPP.app" (NAMEOFYOURAPP has to be replaced with the name of ur app^^) and place ur compiled files in there. (the only necesary ones are the NAMEOFYOURAPP file and the Info.plist).

    Respring ur ipod and u should see the Icon of your app anywhere on the springboard. try to launch it, and if it doesn't work u maybe a have to change the permissions of your app folder to 0775 or 0777(u can do this via Cyberduck/WinSCP)
