    First of all, i would like to say:
    Thanks radish for telling me how to take out a screenshot!

    Second of all, i asked radish if it was possible to SSH in a picture and he said it wasnt.

    I was determined to find a way and so i did.
    SSH into here var/mobile/Media/DCIM/100APPLE
    ^
    thats where screenshots are stored.

    get a picture u wanna put on your ipod and name it IMG_****.PNG
    i say **** because that number is based off of the last screenshot you took.
    say you have 2 screenshots. they will be named IMG_0001.PNG and IMG_0002.PNG.
    that means the picture u wanna put in there needs to be named IMG_0003.PNG

    everything capatalized like that too.
    it should work. worked for me. i just respringed after adding the picture and went into photos and it was there.

    oh and if this is already known, sorry lol. i just didnt think many people knew this.

    be careful doing this. i did it on 2.2.1 when the 2G jailbreak first came out and it worked but the picture wouldnt delete and it wouldnt let me take a screenshot. so if you do this test out deleting a pic, saving a pic from safari, and taking a screenshot. if that all works your good. if it doesnt then delete the picture you SSH'd with SSH. i was probably just unlucky that day but its just so you know it can happen.
