    Hi,

    I'm trying to make a backup copy of my jailbroken ipod touch 3g via ssh on my linux machine. Only problem is I can't seem to find a way to download dd for my ipod. Does anyone know where I can find it?

    Thanks

    P.S. I have everything else working, just don't have dd on my ipod.

    dd is a low level copy program for raw data. Basically it can be used to make an exact copy of the raw image (i.e. actual bits) of a hard drive or other memory storage device.

    Wikipedia probably does a better job explaining it then I did if you are interested:
