    Summerboard is a launcher, a sort of replacement for the built-in Springboard launcher. It's skinnable, configurable, supports pagination and so on.

    You can use SSH to connect to your ipod with your computer. search for "WinSCP" if you want to get it working. But you probably dont need it. Also, if you arent using it, turn it off because it drains the battery, and it also poses a security threat for it because the password is the same on all ipods. You could change it if you wanted (search it), but if you keep it off, then you should be fine.

  9. ssh can be a pain in the ass, and like he said it is a security threat so ask someone for the link to the total commander program and the plugin and lets you browse your ipod touch/iphone in a disk mode kind of thing, no wifi required and really simple to
