    Ok, so I got an Itouch. Follow the guide here to jb it. Everything went smoothly till I need to use WinScp to put NES roms into the itouch. Here is the problem, I get this line when I try to connect:

    Search for host...
    Connecting to host....
    Authenticating.....
    Using username "root"
    Authenticating with pre-entered password
    Access denied.

    1. Check your ip address again
    2. Check that ssh is enabled. ( I downloaded 'services' application through installer and find thats an easy way to turn ssh on and off.
    3. Check that ipod is not in sleep mode..turn autolock to never
    4. Unless you've specifically changed the password, you should be using alpine.

    Your IP address. This can be found by navigating to settings>wifi>find your network>click blue arrow (this is done on your iPod.)

    I put my IP address in there but it told me it couldn't find the host. any insight on why that might be.
