    I have a 32gb ipod touch 2.2.1

    I have not done anything to it yet.

    I want to install custom themes on it. I have been googling like mad for information on this but when I seem to find an answer the hyperlink is bad.

    I understand that you have to install openssh and winscp I GET THAT!

    I need a step by step guide of what to do from step one like you are just getting a brand spanking new ipod touch.

    I installed winscp on my computers. I dont know how to install openssh. Do I install that on my ipod touch? And all this talk about cydia. I dont know what that is and its not on my ipod so if you can break it down so a 5 year old can understand I would greatly appreciate it.

    Again I did google and look in this forum but I havent found anything to help me.

    Thank YOU!

    ok so i did everything stated in the video.

    ps the libusb might make it hard to shut down your computer... It gave me a blue screen when i tried to shut down.

    Also after I jailbreaked and all that jazz.... I am noticing that I can not access my music and my videos.. I restarted my ipod and was able to fix one but I cant seem to figure out why it wont give me access to both. I have to shut it down in order for me to get access. can anyone help me out?
