    Hehe, I knew this was going to happen as soon as the 2G was jailbroken. Just search around for guides. That's what I'm doing.

    I just figured this out.

    To SSH, install OpenSSH on your iPod through Cydia > Search > OpenSSH. On your computer, install WinSCP. In WinSCP, fill your username as your iPod's IP address (check it in your WiFi settings), the username as 'root', the password as 'alpine'. If it says something about authentication, enter 'alpine' again.

    Try installing a theme, winterboard will automaticlly install itself. It did that for me. I recommend Fetch if your going to ssh on mac, or cyberduck. But fetch if you want to add cracked apps (not going into any detail)

    actually, cydia came with some sources, and those included bger and wb.

    but, i tried dl'ing bger, and apparently the bigboss source repo is not reachable.

    and for ssh, heres what i did:

    download and install winscp

    get mobileterminal on ipod touch through cydia

    get ip address through settings>general>network>wi-fi>whatever wifi you use

    in mobileterminal, enter "ssh root@<ipaddress>

    then, in winscp, fill out the host name with your ip address, the user name with "root", and the password as "alpine".

    then you should be connected and boom.
