    !!!!!!!EDIT: this also works with 1.1.4!!!!!!!


    UPDATE: I uploaded the hosts file already modded just drag it into the etc folder on your ipod and say yes to replace.

    UPDATE 2: REPO IS CURRENTLY DOWN
    There is now a repo for this thanks to mynameisBEEKMAN, the repo is "beekman7816.googlepages.com/repo.xml". It will be under Tweaks (1.1.3)

    SSH into your iPod and go to "etc/hosts" Open the "hosts" file with a text editor and add this at the end on a new line:

    64.12.161.185 login.oscar.aol.com
    64.12.161.185 login.messaging.aol.com
    65.54.239.140 messenger.hotmail.com
    65.54.239.140 dp.msnmessenger.akadns.net
    65.54.179.216 nexus.passport.com
    65.54.179.216 nexus.passport.com.nsatc.net
    65.54.183.203 login.live.com
    65.54.183.203 login.live.com.nsatc.net
    65.55.128.48 spaces.live.com
    209.85.163.125 talk.google.com
    209.85.163.125 talk.l.google.com

    If it doesn't work for you, sorry. It's the only fix that works for me.

    EDIT: Here is the hosts file already modded. Just drag it into the etc folder and say yes to replace.

    Well I'm not exactly the brightest at the whole SSH thing yet and I haven't watched any video's on it. So until I do or until anyone else not 1337 with the SSH program then use the
    " So stupid it might just work " plan.

    Since you need wi-fi connection to access and sign in to apollo anyways why not just bookmark a web - app from Safari to your home page or bookmark it in your safari.
    Just go to a website like " FlickIM.com, Meebo.com, or any other websites like those to use aim, e-mail. Btw flickIM only does aim I think and Meebo does all so meebo.com is more accurate everyone.

    I would say thanks a bunch to you if I knew how to use this method of SSH but right now I don't so I'll try to help out other people like me.

    Thanks for the help when I learn how to use SSH.

    I just learned how to use SSH. Yes I'm a noob. Now I get everything else but how do you access this file etc./hosts file?

    Like what do you have to do to get there?

    No, The file I'm talking about is in the folder "etc" and there is a file somewhere in the middle that is just called "hosts".

    And vintagecondom, I know about those other sites and i still prefer iphone54.beejive.com to apollo but I just came across this fix and tried it and it worked. Oh, btw I didn't come up with this, I found it at everythingicafe.

    DUDE! THIS f***ING WORKED!
    Apollo was the biggest thing i missed when updating to 1.1.3.
    and you just made my 1.1.3 complete.

    i mean i know there was a fix awhile ago for JUST MSN.
    but this works for AIM!
