    I had a jailbroken 2G with Cydia and all that, worked fine la-di-da-di-da.
    But I wanted verbose boot so I found a computer with 8.0.2 (Is that the one that brings in 3.0 campatibility or is it 8.2?) and tried to shift+restore down to 3.0 for the verbose boot. Anyways I got error 20 when trying tor estore so now I've gotta stay with 3.1.2. So yeah, bummer. I jailbroke with Blackra1n and then realised: "Dammit! No wi-fi for a month!" So I cant get Cydia with blackra1n and cant downgrade to 3.0 and use redsn0w. I have all the .deb files for my old packages and was wondering if I could install them by SSH (total commander).? Is that possible, and where/what directories would I create and place the packages in? I miss being "properly" jailbroken

    EDIT:Just curious, when I restored (DFU)(What does that stand for anyway?) I still have my fake carrier string (TyPod, cause my nicknames Ty, and its an iPod, get it?

    shush, I think it's cool). How do you get rid of it? I hate the standard Apple font, it sucks

    Put them in the root directory and type this into a terminal application (I know winscp has one but im not sure about the others)

    dpkg -i appname.deb (where appname is the filename of the deb)

    Either on the iPod or in an ssh client. Make sure you navigate to the directory where the .deb is in terminal first though
