    I've done a lot of research and figured out how to dowload the app files and stuff but how do I install them on the ipod? I don't have a wi-fi connection at home. I keep hearing ssh but I'm not sure how it factors in. Sorry if this question has been asked but I couldn't find anything in the forum addressing this exact issue.

    Dude, I told you about iPhoneBrowser or MegaPhone.

    All you do is connect your iPod touch or iPhone, and put the applications in the applications folder and set the permissions to 755.

    Done.

    Oh sorry. I didn't realize that you could use both. Again, I'm new to the whole thing so please forgive the newbie questions. If it's any consolation, I'm a quick learner!

    If the apps keep crashing, type this into Putty or terminal:

    /bin/chmod -R 755 /Applications/*
