    Ok this is an awesome yet simple way to turn off auto correct.

    1. SSH Into your ipod
    2. Go to /System/Library/TextInput/
    3 Find your text. (TextInput_en is english)
    4. Rename it to whatever you want
    5 Enjoy!


    Once installer 4.0 comes out i will add this to my repository so it wont be an issue!

    Its too bad because sometimes autocorrect helps when you are writing something, but most of the time its just really freakin annoying. Anyways, thanks for the tut.

    Or, you could be intelligent and Google it..
    It can be done easily by adding a value to a .plist, so you can turn it back on easily.

    Do we know how to edit certain words in it? I thank you for finding this, but I was planning to

    . Auto Correct helps me a lot on some words when I am typing really fast, but other words I want it off.

    I can't believe Apple didn't offer this option as a default. As if everyone's mother tongue is English... Plus the "feature" is quite annoying, even if you're typing in English.
