    Hello,

    I have a big problem.

    I successfully jailbreaked my iPod touch, and I successfully made the Calendar writable. File transfers via SFPT work.

    However, no Application I installed on the iPod, no matter whether from the iPhone or 3rd party, will show on the iPod's start screen. I have recursively set the permissions to 755.

    Even if I use Installer.app/Installer, the installed Application, while present in the /Applications folder with the right permissions, will not show on the iPod's start screen.

    However, I can start the Applications using a SSH connection, typing
    /Applications/MobileNotes.app/MobileNotes to start Notes, for example.

    I did the jailbreak on a PPC Mac.

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Matthias.

    Here you go.

    Here you go dude. Have been fighting this for 2 days.

    Trip1PogoStick Manual Install

    If Trip1PogoStick does not install for you (didn't for me) you can install it manually (make sure to Install the BSD Package first using Installer):

    * Download http://conceitedsoftware.com/iphone/zips/Trip1PogoStick.zip on your computer and unzip it
    * scp the Trip1PogoStick folder to your iPod (replace iPodIP with the iPod's IP address)

    scp -r /path/to/Trip1PogoStick root@iPodIP:~/

    * SSH into your iPod
    * Run the following commands

    cp /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/M68AP.plist /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/M68AP.plist.old
    cp -R ~/Trip1PogoStick/SpringBoard.app/ /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/
    ~/Trip1PogoStick/temp/springpatch

    If cp does not work in your ssh terminal, use the instructions below

    * Reboot iPod

    Installing Trip1PogoStick Via FTP

    Some users are reporting that cp commands do not work in their shell. Alternatively, you can install Trip1PogoStick over FTP:

    * Download http://conceitedsoftware.com/iphone/zips/Trip1PogoStick.zip on your computer and unzip it
    * Connect to your iPod over FTP and SSH, using the following settings for FTP

    Protocol: SFTP
    server: your iPod's local ip address
    user: root
    password: alpine

    * Using your FTP client, navigate /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/M68AP.plist on your iPod
    * Rename it to M68AP.plist.old


    * Control-click on Trip1PogoStick Folder/SpringBoard.app that you downloaded and select "Show package Contents"
    * Find M68AP.plist
    * Copy it to /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app/ on your iPod


    * Finally copy springpatch in your Trip1PogoStick Folder to /private/var/root/Trip1PogoStick/temp/ on your iPod
    * Enter the following command into your SSH window

    ~/Trip1PogoStick/temp/springpatch

    * Reboot iPod

    This well fix your issues ( I just did it and it fixed mine) Enjoy!
