    How do I reinstall cydia? I messed up some files via SSH.

    I use DiskAid, I'm on a mac.
    My ipod firmware is right under my username, I used the spirit jailbreak.

    I heard you need mobile terminal, I don't have that and I cant really download it without cydia. Anyway to SSH it in?

    Also, be as detailed as possible.

    As far as I know, you just need to run Spirit again.

    1. Delete Cydia.app from root/applications
    2. Download Cydia.deb (I'll put download link at bottom.
    3. Put Cydia.deb in the root/tmp folder
    4. Run Terminal in WinSCP and type: "dpkg -i /tmp/cydia.deb"

    I understand everything except #4.

    How do I run a terminal? And I definitely said that I use DiskAid and not WinSCP.
