    i know there's a jb done for 1.1.3 but seeing as how they aren't releasing it it might as well be a jb for 2.1.3
    ANYWAYS.... I had an idea. The problem was that the update to 1.1.3 erased(or at least made unnavailable) all the jb related apps BUT since its just an update no media is tampered with, so why not put useful files in your music folder before the update?
    sorry if i'm wasting anyones time...

    Springboard recognizes things in /Applications.
    If you put files in /Media you would just have the files there with no way to execute them.
    You wouldn't have SSH, it would be removed by the update, and there is no way to interact with the actual OS via AFC, only the file system.

    Well I'd heard a lot of talk about symlinks so I thought it would be helpful...

    Symlinks don't survive the update.

    You could see files on the ipod without SSH with TotalCommander Plugin "TPot" even if your ipod is not jailbroken. Therefore, vega191 is right, and there might be a slight chance to use those apps afterwards.

    The only files that can be seen are the files in the Media folder...

    So, you can't do it with TC.

    It doesn't matter what program you use, go write a new one if you'd like.
    All you'd be able to do is use MobileDevice and the AFC provided by iTunes.
    You can't execute applications over AFC, period.
