    I absolutely can not figure out how to use the SSH with my newly jailbroken iPod touch. No matter what I use, DiskAid, Cyberduck (I'm on a mac, by the way), I can't find all these folders that these guides (specifically one for icomic) need to use to be able to install.

    Can anyone help or point me to a tutorial? I've searched but just can't find one.

    you need to run Cydia once, let it install it's packages (openSSH is one of them) then I would install BossPrefs which will show you your wifi IP address on it's main screen (easier than digging it out of "settings" each time) and then you can try and SSH to the device... you have to connect to the IP your ipod has and note that it will jump around a bit usually. As the DHCP lease expires on the IP it has it will grab another one.. so use BossPrefs to see which IP it has then SSH with username "root" and password "alpine"..

    as for tutorials, youtube is your friend. I would search there. good luck!

    I've got all those programs, but I don't know what programs are needed to be able to SSH into the iPod. What do I need on my mac? On my iPod?

    ^^ What he said. Then install BossPrefs (in Cydia) and toggle SSH a little.

    username: root
    password: alpine

    In case you didn't know...

    Ahh, thanks guys. Finally figured it out. Boy that was really frustrating for something that turns out so easy. Why don't the forums have a quick guide for this?
