    It sounds like either installer is corrept or the premissions are set wrong

    as per feberns link you may find setting the permission to 4755 and you will have to log in via terminal and change the permissions using:

    Log into your ipod as normal using winscp

    Go to the folder /private/var/Applications/
    (it's easier to do this than have to type in "cd /private/var/Applications/ in terminal" )

    Select command (its at the top of the program next to file )
    Then select open terminal.

    Then you get a screen that looks a bit like a dos box in windows. And you then need to type in the commands

    chmod +s Installer.app/Installer

    and

    chown -R root:wheel Installer.app
