    I was just wondering if it was possible to access the area of memory that is currently being used by applications and such on the ipod touch through ssh. Im not refering to the area where actual apps are stored but the memory that they access in order to run. Thnz in advance

    You can't access it. Why would you want to anyways?

    Actually, you can access the RAM through the /dev/mem and /dev/kmem device nodes, however, a kernel patch is required to get them working.
    This isn't difficult though, as the patches are well documented and will probably turn up in a Google search.
